    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!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 8 pork escalopes or 8 thin boneless pork chops, pounded
    • flour, as needed
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 120ml white wine
    • 8 slices Mozzarella cheese, about 150g
    • 100g prosciutto, cubed or chopped
    • salt and pepper, as needed

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Lightly flour the escalopes on both sides; shake off excess flour.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
