Step by Step Method

Step 1

Trim fat from pork and cut the pork crosswise into eight slices.

Step 2

Place each slice between two pieces of plastic wrap; using the flat side of a meat mallet, lightly pound the pork to ¼-inch thickness; discard plastic wrap.

Step 3

Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dishand dip the pork slices into the flour mixture, turning to coat.

Step 4

Coat a heavy large skillet with cooking spray and add 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet; heat over medium-high heat.

Step 5

Add four pork slices to the hot oil; cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the pork is slightly pink in the center, turning once halfway through the cooking time.

Step 6

Transfer the pork to a serving platter; cover with foil to keep warm.

Step 7

Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining four pork slices.

Step 8

Cook onion in the same skillet over medium heat for about 4 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Step 9

Combine cranberries, broth, and vinegar in a small bowl; carefully add to the skillet; heat through.

Step 10

Serve the onion mixture over the pork slices.

Wow is this good...I cut the recipe in half and used pork loin chops that I pounded thin...the crust on the pork was nice and crispy and the cranberry onion relish is beyond delicious...I served it with egg noodles tossed in butter and poppy seeds along with a side of peas...made for "Pick Me" tag game...
