This is a perfect weekday meal for the whole family. It’s a little bit special (pork cutlets are always a treat in our family) but it’s so easy to prepare. And the taste is just WOW!


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 (about 250g each) pork cutlets, rind off
  • 4 thin slices lemon
  • 8 thin slices mild pancetta
  • ¼ cup store-bought basil pesto
  • Grilled ciabatta bread and rocket leaves, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan-forced. Combine 1 tablespoon oil, garlic and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a shallow ceramic dish. Add pork and toss to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Place pork onto a clean work surface. Place a lemon slice onto each. Fold over the pancetta, place the folded slice on one side of the cutlet and secure with a toothpick. Repeat on the other side. Repeat using remaining pancetta and pork.
  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add pork and cook for 2-3 minutes each side (turning carefully) until golden.
  4. Place pork onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Roast for 8-10 minutes or until just cooked through. Cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes. Drizzle basil pesto over pork. Serve with grilled ciabatta bread and rocket leaves.

  • Pork in pork. They sound like the chops would be very tender being wrapped.

  • I make this quite often and always add a sage leaf or two between the chop and the pancetta. – it really highlights the taste and makes the dish into something special. Good luck. And thanks for sharing your recipe.

  • I struggle to cook any pork options for my family. They don’t love it in our house. But, this seems like a recipe that might win them over.
