READY IN: 35mins




  • Make sauce – Stir together all sauce ingredients in a bowl until combined, then chill, covered, until ready to use.
  • Cook pork – Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cut pork crosswise into 1 ¼” thick slices (medallions).
  • Whisk together flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl.
  • Whisk together eggs with a pinch of salt in another shallow bowl and put bread crumbs in a third shallow bowl.
  • Working with 1 medallion at a time, dredge them in flour, shaking off excess, and dip in egg, letting excess drip off, then coat with crumbs, pressing to help them adhere. Arrange pork in 1 layer on baking sheet.
  • Heat 1/4” oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then panfry medallions, turning over once, until golden brown, 6-8 minutes total.
  • Transfer to a clean baking sheet and roast in oven until thermometer inserted horizontally into center of meat registers 145-150F, 6 to 7 minutes.
  • Serve pork with sauce, lemon wedges and watercress.
