Pork Saltimbocca

"The classic Roman dish uses veal. It is wonderful. This version with nice lean pork is also very tasty. This is also very fast to make and quite elegant"

  1. Tried for Fall PAC 2011. YUM! The only thing we would change is the amount of sauce, we are saucy people ;-) The flavours were divine. Thanks again for a great recipe Connie.
  2. This was an excellent recipe, made just as described. Next time I may try using pork tenderloin to make it even more tender, and perhaps add a soft cheese such as fontina in the middle- I love cheese in everything :-) Thanks Connie for a different slant on the lowly pork chop. Didn't need the toothpicks- it held together very well on it's own.


I am a mother of 5, grandmother of 2. I have been cooking for 45 years and it is still my passion. I am married to a chef. My oldest son is also a chef. All my kids are major foodies. We really enjoy getting together for family holidays etc. And it is always all about the food and love & laughter. The baby in the icon is my 4 year old grandson, Oliver. The pic is me on my 59th b'day, my husband gave me those gorgeous pearls and we had a great evening. I also must mention the other lover in my life the very hairy, extemely beautiful, totally black cat named Spike; actually he is afraid of his own shadow so we gave him a tough guy name. One of my sons was a soldier in the Canadian military. I pray for all of our children who so bravely defend our way of life. I try to do something kind everyday. It really is nice to be nice. I detest pettiness, two faced people and dishonesty. I try to treat everyone I touch with the same respect I would like. Also I try not to sweat the small stuff. This is pretty much my survival philosophy. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z205/jubespage/stacky5.jpg"> <img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Birthday%20and%20Celebration%20Images/FrenchCheeseoftheWeekClub.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/ThymeSticker.jpg">
