Pork Cutlets with Salsa Verde & Fried Plantains

Friday, March 7, 2014

Pork cutlets with salsa verde served with fried plantains is such a great and flavorful combination beyond words, you should definitely try this (take my word for it, people!). I made it this week along with fresh cooked beans and rice, it was a perfect plate of yumminess. Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

8 boneless, thin cut  pork cutlets
2 (7 oz. each) cans salsa verde (I used Herdez brand)
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper
Handful of chopped cilantro
3 large plantains, cut into 1/2 inch slices
Vegetable oil for frying

In a large bowl, add the pork cutlets, minced garlic, lime juice and season with salt and black pepper. Toss to combine, let it marinate for at least 20 minutes. In a large pan, heat the olive oil over high heat. Add the pork cutlets (if your pan doesn't fit all of them, it's okay. Just do it in batches), once the pork cutlets are cooked, transfer them to a dish. Add the sliced onions to the pan, sauté until translucent. Pour the salsa verde into the pan, combine with sauté onions. Add the pork cutlets back into the pan, let it cook for a couple of minutes for flavors to combine well. Sprinkle the chopped cilantro over the top. For plantains: in a large skillet, heat about 1-inch of vegetable oil over high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the plantain slices and allow it to cook until golden in color on each side. Transfer slices to a plate lined with paper towel and sprinkle with salt. Serve and enjoy!

I love how unique this dish is. I've seen plantains at the grocery store before, and never know how to use them. I'm going to have to try this one!

Love your blog, I found you over on Weekend Potluck :)
