Weeknight Dinner: Pork Scaloppini
KCET's own Cook's Country has a recipe that's simple enough for any weeknight dinner -- which is really something coming from these professional perfectionists! Pair the protein with egg noodles or rice pilaf, and enjoy.
1 large pork tenderloin (about 1 pound), cut into 4 equal pieces and pounded 1/4 inch thick
Salt and pepper
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley (If you like, substitute tarragon, chives, or basil)
Pat cutlets dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium heat. Cook 2 cutlets until golden brown and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to platter and tent with foil. Repeat with additional 1 tablespoon butter and remaining cutlets.
Add garlic and additional 1 tablespoon butter to empty skillet and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in broth, lemon juice, sugar, and any accumulated pork juices and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Off heat, whisk in parsley and remaining butter. Pour sauce over cutlets. Serve.

Huell investigates a onetime tradition, the Yosemite Firefall, and experiences the natural version of the "Firefall" at Horsetail Fall. Huell calls it "one of the most magnificent sights you'll ever see in your life."
