I love no-nonsense women. Women who know what they want. They talk straight. They're confident, they're ball busters and don't take crap from anyone. This is Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. She is incredibly intelligent and a top-notch chef. You may know her as one of the judges from Chopped or Beat Bobby Flay. She is also an executive chef and cookbook author. I recently purchased her book, Cook with Me, and made the best pork dish of my life. I made Alex Guarnaschelli's Superb Pork Cutlets. Come to think of it, I believe this was her mom's recipe from her childhood. I'll warn you now: they are totally addicting!
Alex Guarnaschelli's Pork Cutlets Has a Simple List of Ingredients
There are only a handful of ingredients to this excellent pork cutlet dish. Each addition is critical to the overall flavor and balance of the dish. The best part is that you probably already have some of the ingredients on hand. This dish comes together very quickly with an outstanding and surprising sauce made from tomatoes, fresh squeezed lemon juice and maple syrup. I would not have thought of these ingredients together before making this. The result is a sweet and tangy punch that complements the crunch of the pork in the best possible way. And don't forget the pinch of red pepper flakes - this is a small, but critical flavor. Oh, and the basil. Again, not a fresh herb I would think of pairing with pork, of all things. But it is crazy delicious!
