Pork Au Poivre

Recipe by Charmie777
READY IN: 25mins




  • Cut the pork into 3/4-inch thick slices to make about 16 slices.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter and the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Rub pepper onto one side only of each pork slice to coat well. Use the amount you desire -- more pepper, more heat!
  • Add meat to skillet, working in batches, pepper side down first, then cook turning once until just cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side. If you overcook, the pork will be dry.
  • Remove to heated serving platter. Use additional butter with remaining pork slices.
  • Turn heat to low and add the Cognac to the juices in skillet.
  • Raise the heat to medium-high and bring the liquid to a boil. Boil 30 seconds just to evaporate the alcohol.
  • Pour immediately over pork and serve.
