1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1-pound pork loins, cut into 10 cutlets, then pounded to 1/8 inch thick
3 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest


Heat the butter and oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Season the 10 pork cutlets with 2 teaspoons of the salt and the pepper. Cook the cutlets until lightly browned and cooked through, about 1 minute per side or until tender. Remove from pan. Set aside 4 cutlets and keep warm. Freeze 6 cutlets for another day.

Add the chicken broth to the pan and simmer, scraping up the brown bits with a wooden spoon, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and the remaining salt. Drizzle the meat with the pan juices and sprinkle with the zest. Serve with Lemon Asparagus.
