Quick and Elegant Dinner: Pork Cutlets With Grapes and Goat Cheese

This is a fancy dinner that takes less than half an hour to prepare! You simply brown thinly sliced pork cutlets and make a simple sauce with sweet, juicy grapes. I like red grapes, but you can use whatever kind you have on hand (or is reasonably priced at the market). The dish is savory and sweet! To finish, a light dusting of creamy, tangy goat cheese adds to the flavor of the dish. The pork cutlets and sauce are great with pasta or rice, or try them with quinoa alongside. Enjoy!

Pork Cutlets With Grapes and Goat Cheese -- Serves 2 +


1 tablespoon of canola or olive oil

12 ounces of thinly sliced pork cutlets (5-6 cutlets)

1/2 teaspoon of salt, divided

1/4 teaspoon of pepper

1/4 teaspoon of onion powder

1/4 cup of flour

2 cups of grapes, removed from their stems (no, you don't have to cut them in half!)

1 tablespoon of butter

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

1 1/2 cups of chicken broth (or reconstituted chicken "Better Than Bullion")

Small handful of fresh thyme sprigs or 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme

1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice (to taste)

1/4-1/2 cup of goat cheese (depending on how much you like goat cheese!)


Season the pork cutlets with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper and the onion powder. Coat the cutlets well with the flour. Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet or chef's pan over medium heat and add the cutlets when the oil is shimmering. Cook the cutlets for a few minutes, then flip them and cook them another few minutes to lightly brown the second side. Remove the cutlets from the pan and set them aside. Add the grapes and butter to the pan and saute the grapes for about five minutes or until they turn juicy and begin to split open (reduce the heat a little, if necessary). Stir the brown sugar into the grapes, then add the chicken broth and the thyme. Reduce the heat to medium low, partially cover the pan, and let the grapes cook for 5-10 minutes or until they are soft and the liquid has reduced by about one-third. Stir in remaining salt (or to taste) and the lemon juice. Return the pork cutlets to the pan and spoon the sauce over them for a minute or two. Turn off the heat and sprinkle the goat cheese over the cutlets. Serve the cutlets with the grape sauce and rice, pasta, etc..
