Pork and Marsala

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by David Reidy

I was a big fan of veal marsala but decided on ethical grounds to stop eating veal. Pork happened to be available in similar steak cuts so I started using that. This recipe comes from a number of weeks of playing around with ingredients.

I love veal marsala as well- but same reasons I stopped buying veal. I buy instead extra thin cut pork cutlets, scallopine style- and soak them in milk overnight- it tenderizes them & gives them a "veal" flavor... I also added about 1lb of mushrooms & increased the wine. I serve with fettuicine & asparagus... superb!!
