Balsamic Pork Scallopine Recipe

I developed this delightful dish by tweaking my veal scallopine recipe—thinly sliced pork is an economical alternative and a tasty success! —Mary Cokenour, Monticello, Utah
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

"Made this Thursday night and it was a big hit; we all enjoyed it. The pork was extremely tender, the sauce tasty and the leftovers heated up nicely the next night in the sauce. Although the noodles were tasty, I wouldn't pair it with this pork but will keep and use that recipe with something else. I'm making this again tomorrow night for company and plan on making plain noodles to accompany this; rice or mashed potatoes would also go well with this pork. The pork was so tender it tasted like veal!"

"This recipe was so delicious! I am not much of a meat eater. However, this was tender and juicy and did not taste like pork. We also prefer our meat extremely tender so simmered this on low heat for 7 hours or so. The noodles were also terrific. There were tasty enough to be served as a dish standing alone, or perhaps be topped with other dishes like goulash or spaghetti. The only deviation from the recipe as written was the use of a low fat pork roast which I sliced myself. This goes in the family favorite recipe archives!!"

"This recipe is delicious, however the only thing I will change the next time I make this dish is to cut down on the amount of balsamic vinegar. I will also double the sauce next time, we like using the saucer as "gravy" on the noodles."

"I made this dish the other night, it was a BIG hit. While cooking the whole house smelled great! A very flavorful dish, although the balsamic was a little over powering for my taste but I will simply adjust it down the next time. The noodles were fantastic too and complimented the balsamic dish very well. The noodle dish was as simple to make as boxed man n cheese without the box, the kids loved it too. This recipe has become a part of my menu arsenal, its very nice to have many choices when trying to decide what to cook for dinner.

BTW, I trimmed all the fat and pounded the pork to about a 1/4 inch, this made it extemely tender. I bet this dish would taste well using chicken tenderloins too. Can't wait to try that one.
If you like balsamic you'll absolutely love this dish."

"the balsamic over powered all other flavors except maybe the roasted red peppers, which were very good. The pork was nearly tasteless. I also adjusted the garlic from 6 cloves to 4. Six cloves?! Yikes, I like garlic but with 4 it was plenty for me. I would like to try this with further adjustments with veal and using veal stock instead of chicken. The noodles were uninspiring."

"These are a good switch from what we regularly make, so that is nice. We have made twice now, and everyone eats them without complaining, but no special compliments either. The noodles on the other hand are a huge hit. We make them with NO YOLKS dumplings (really just extra wide egg noodles) and everyone loves them. We have saved the noodles as a recipe on their own as they would be great with veal scallopine, thin saute chicken breast cutlets, ham steak etc. The NO YOLKS are light and with the sauce make a great light accompaniment. To make them even lighter, we use either half 1/2 and 1/2/ and half milk, or all whole milk. Either way they are very good. But do use the butter in the noodles. . .while we like to eat healthy, the butter makes all of the difference in the noodles."

"I made this recipe last night, and it was absolutely delicious! The sauce was super flavorful and the whole house smelled so yummy. I made mine with turkey cutlets, which tasted fabulous. The only thing I didn't like was the noodles. However, I used the whole wheat version and they were too "sturdy" for my taste. If I would have used regular egg noodles, I'm certain it would have turned out better. Would definitely recommend this recipe!!"
