Ingredients

  • 1 1.7 lb Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet cut at a diagonal into 1/2 inch thick slices
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • the juice of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • For garnish: lemon slices and chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Place the flour on a plate. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • In a large pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat.
  • Dredge the pork slices in the flour mixture on both sides and add to the pan in one layer. You may need to work in batches.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or just until cooked through. Repeat with remaining pork.
  • Remove the pork from the pan and place on a plate; cover to keep warm.
  • Wipe out the pan with a paper towel and add the remaining teaspoon of oil. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in the chicken broth and lemon juice, simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in the cream and cook for another 3 minutes. Mix the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of cold water; add the cornstarch mixture to the pan. Increase the heat to high and cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce has just thickened.
  • Add the pork back to the pan and serve, garnished with parsley and lemon slices if desired.
