Italian Style Pork Cutlets

Easy and Delicious

Here is a great recipe that you can make in 30 minutes or less. I fooled around with this a few different ways and settled on the ingredients and techniques listed.

What you need

  • A large frying pan
  • 4-boneless pork chops 1-1/12″ thick (you could use 8-1/2″ bone-in chops but, they won’t make good sandwiches the next day)
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • 4-cloves of garlic
  • 1-23.5 oz jar of Prego Italian Sausage & Garlic. (O.K. I know some of you purists might gag on this. But, trust me, it works great. If you can’t bring yourself to use gravy out of a jar, use 1-can of peeled, crushed tomatoes, 1-can of tomato paste.)
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil (not extra virgin)
  • 1/4 cup of chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup of white wine
  • 1-tablespoon of dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
