Pork Tenderloin Parmesan

I lost my camera so I wasn't able to take a picture of this meal. Instead I am using the photo off of Martha Stewart where I got the recipe from. If the meal wasn't good, I wouldn't even post it and just chalk it up to a meal gone bad. But it was really good. I searched and searched for my camera but didn't find it until after dinner and by then it had been devoured. I cut the tenderloin in half and put the rest in the freezer. Guess what I'll be making when I decide to thaw it out.

Pork Tenderloin Parmesan
12 ounces pork tenderloin
2 large egg whites
1/4 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Coarse salt
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
Lemon wedges, for garnish
Parsley sprigs, for garnish

Slice pork into 12 pieces, and place between sheets of plastic wrap. With a small heavy skillet or meat mallet, pound pork to 1/8-inch thickness.

Combine egg whites with 1 tablespoon water in a shallow bowl or pie plate and lightly beat to combine; set aside. In a second shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan; set aside.
Season pork with salt. Dredge in flour, tapping off excess. Dip first in egg-white mixture, then place in breadcrumb mixture, turning to coat. Pat gently to adhere.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Sauté half the pork until golden brown and cooked through, about 1 minute per side. Repeat with remaining tablespoon oil and remaining pork. Serve with lemon wedges and parsley sprigs.

This looks so tasty. I have been looking for a new way to make pork (other than in the crockpot).

That looks amazing! I love recipes that are versatile enough for different meats - chicken, pork, etc

We made this for dinner tonight with roasted fingerling potatoes. I had an extra tenderloin I needed to deploy, and I love a recipe that uses all "pantry staples" and comes out company-worhty. Thanks for sharing. Yum!

This looks so good. I have only had chicken Parmesan, so I will definitely have to try this.
