“As a busy mom, I’m always on the look out for elegant dishes that are quick to make for a special occasion,” relates Diane Peterson of Hudsonville, Michigan. “This delicious breaded pork can be made in minutes.”


  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons additional chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • Hot cooked pasta, optional


  1. Cut pork into 12 pieces; flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat egg and water. Place bread crumbs in a third bowl. Coat pork with flour mixture, dip in egg and then coat with crumbs.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, cook pork in butter and oil for 6-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  3. Add the mushrooms, wine or broth and additional broth to skillet; stir to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, stirring occasionally. Stir in lemon juice and parsley; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until heated through. Pour over pork. Serve with pasta if desired.
