11. Honey Pecan Pork Cutlets
Pork is another great protein to have on hand.
Did you know that pork loin has the same amount of protein, 22 grams, as most fish fillets?
It’s also low in fat and high in vitamin B1.
If you haven’t tried making pork in a while, this honey pecan recipe makes a sweet and crunchy entrée that any carnivore will love!
1 pound boneless pork loin cutlets pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
Flour for dredging
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Dredge cutlets in flour, shaking off excess.
In a heavy skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon butter.
Add cutlets and sauté until brown on both sides, 5 to 6 minutes.
Soften the remaining butter and mix it with the honey and pecans;
add to skillet and stir gently.
Cover and simmer gently 7 to 8 minutes.
Remove cutlets to a serving platter, and spoon any remaining sauce and pecans over them.
