Thin slices of pork in a tomato sauce.

In Italy "Pizzaiola" is the name of a tomato and garlic sauce normally served with meat and poultry. Each cook is free to create his own variations on this theme by adding herbs and spices, in the same spirit as for a "pizza".

Ingredients

200 g pork cutlets
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup canned tomatoes (diced) 130 g
1 tbsp olive paste 16 g
1/2 tsp dried oregano 0.4 g
1 tbsp cornstarch [optional] 8 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Put the serving dish in the oven at the lowest setting to keep the meat warm while cooking the sauce.

Method

  1. Flatten and tenderize the cutlets using a meat pounder. Make a few shallow cuts around the outside edge to avoid curling during cooking. Coat each cutlet with the cornstarch; then shake off the excess.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the whole garlic cloves, sauté 1-2 min, then add the cutlets, and brown each side for about 2 min. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the cutlets from the pan then set aside on the warmed serving plate in the oven.
  3. Add the tomatoes, olive paste and oregano. Cook 4-5 min, then put the meat back into the pan. Continue to cook 2 min, turning the cutlets once. Serve.
