Alright - I'm notoriously a bad cook. My previous menu mostly included cereal with milk and take-out. Call me crazy, but I got ambitious a little bit ago, and decided I was going to cook up a meal for a date. It must have been divine intervention, because for some reason I actually chose this intimidating recipe. Well - hallelujah! Amazingly it turned out fantastic! I even impressed my gourmet chef boss with the left-overs. I am very impressed with this one. Thanks! I'm serving it tonite for a dinner date - also including rice and maybe some bread - most likely bisquits and honey (ok - so I'm no gourmet). I think this also goes well with a semi-dry white wine.
Wow!! This really easy to make and soooo good. Now my friends are in awe of my ability to cook! Thank you very much, I will be checking back often.
This was delicious! I did the pork exactly as called for in the recipe and it was as good as I could have imagined. I had never used nuts to coat a meat and I was delighted with the results. (you really do need to be careful not to burn the nuts) I strayed off the course with the mango shrimp part. I knew my husband would turn his nose up if I did it the way the recipe called for, so I made rice and added lime juice, sauted onion, red bell pepper and chopped mango. He was still apprehensive, but I was wild about it!
We have been part of a gourmet group for 22 years. Last night we served this dish to the group and everyone raved that it was one of the best the group had ever fixed. Preparation for 8 people was a little difficult----sauting the pork cutlets at the last minute was a little time consuming (we served two per person), but everyone agreed that it was worth the wait. We fixed the mango sauce ahead of time---pounded the cutlets and mixed the pistachios with flour, as well. The presentation was beautiful and the taste was wonderful. I would highly recommend this dish!!
