Preparation 5 min
Cooking 10 min

280 calories per serving 


200 g pork cutlets, thinly sliced    
1 eggs size large    
2 tbsp cornmeal (polenta)   16 g
1 tbsp margarine non-hydrogenated   14 g
1 tbsp canola oil   15 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Tenderize the meat by flattening the cutlets using a meat pounder.
  2. Prepare 2 shallow dishes: beat the egg in one, and put the cornmeal in the other. Dip one cutlet at the time in the egg, let the excess egg drip off before coating the cutlet with the cornmeal. Turn the cutlets to coat both sides, then set them aside.
  3. Heat the margarine and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, taking care not to let them burn. Add the cutlets and sauté until golden, about 4 min on each side. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Serve on the warmed plates.


The remaining beaten egg may be cooked as an omelet and served along side the cutlets.
