About this recipe:Scaloppine is the Italian name for escalopes. These are very thin slices of meat, traditionally veal, but more often nowadays pork or chicken. They cook quickly, seared in a pan with good olive oil and butter, then deglazed with a splash of white wine. Serve with plenty of crusty bread to soak up the sauce!

Lightly flour the escalopes on both sides; shake off excess flour.
Heat olive oil and butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat; add escalopes, one slice next to the other, and cook for 5 minutes. Don't be tempted to move the meat, just shake the pan to make sure the pork does not stick to the bottom. Flip with a fork and cook opposite side for 5 minutes.
Pour in wine; cook until the alcohol evaporates. Reduce heat; place 1 slice of mozzarella and some prosciutto on each escalope. Cover the pan and cook on low for 2-3 minutes, or until mozzarella starts to melt.
Remove from heat and adjust seasoning. Serve 2 slices per person with the mozzarella and prosciutto on top. Spoon some of the cooking sauce over the escalopes.
