The Gourmet Cupboard recipe - Pork Cutlets with Apple Slaw

     I don't know if I told you this already, but one of my "jobs", besides Mom (taxi driver, etc), and Wife, is as an Independent Distributor for The Gourmet Cupboard.  One of the most fabulous parts of it is that I am so happy to be cooking!!  The mixes can be used in so many ways besides their original purposes.  We have lots of fantastic cooks in our distributors, that will share their recipes too.  

    I am going to tempt you with one of them today too. :)  This one was shared by one of our Top Team Leaders, Roberta Whalen.  (Don't get any drool on your keyboards!)

Pork Cutlets with Apple Slaw
Mix needed: The Gourmet Cupboard's Cabbage Crunch mix

4 thin pork cutlets
1/2 cup honey mustard salad dressing
1 cup bread crumbs or crushed corn flakes

2 granny smith apples
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 bag shredded cabbage
1/2 cup yellow raisins or currants
apple cider vinegar
light olive oil to drizzle

Pound out your pork cutlets, if needed, to flatten. Place in a zipper-style bag and cover with honey mustard dressing to marinate. Then dredge in bread crumbs on both sides. Place on a lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 min.

Meanwhile prepare slaw by slicing your apples into small matchsticks. Place in a zipper-style bag with lemon juice to coat to prevent browning. In a large bowl, mix together, bagged shredded cabbage, cabbage crunch mix package, raisins, apples and oil and vinegar to your desired likeness. Toss well and refrigerate until ready to serve.

A great twist on classic pork chops and apple sauce but with a summer twist and very little time with the oven on. You can also omit the breading on the pork cutlets and grill them instead to make it totally oven-free!
