DIRECTIONS

  • Place each chop between 2 pieces of plastic wrap.
  • With a heavy, flat mallet, pound meat firmly but gently all over to a thickness of 1/4 to 1/3 inch.
  • (I don't have a mallet, so I use my rolling pin).
  • Coat pork lightly with flour.
  • Melt butter in a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • When the butter sizzles, add pork.
  • Cook, turning once, until pork is well browned on both sides and no longer pink in center (cut to test) (4 to 5 minutes).
  • Transfer to a warm platter and keep warm while preparing sauce.
  • Add shallot and pepper to pan; stir until shallot is soft (1 1/2 to 2 minutes).
  • Add wine, orange peel and orange juice.
  • Increase heat to high and boil, stirring frequently until sauce is reduced to 1/2 cup (3 to 4 minutes).
  • Pour sauce over pork to serve.
