Nutritional Facts

Directions

  1. Cut pork into 2-in. slices; flatten slices slightly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, brown pork in 2 tablespoons butter in batches; remove and set aside.

Editor's Note: Look for green peppercorns in spice shops. You may substitute a small amount of coarsely ground black peppercorns if desired.
