200 g pork cutlets, thinly sliced
1 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 8 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1 clove garlic
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1/2 cup canned tomatoes, low sodium 130 g
1 tbsp olive paste 16 g
1/2 tsp dried oregano 0.4 g

Before you start

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


  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 them with the optional flour and shake off the excess (the flour will give a thicker sauce).
  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.
