Using fresh sage is the key to giving this classic dish lots of flavor in very little time.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 tbsp. oil over high heat in a large frying pan. Add whole sage leaves and fry until crisp, about 30 seconds. Carefully transfer to a paper towel-lined plate (they are quite brittle when fried) and set aside.

Step 2

Season pork cutlets lightly with salt and pepper and spread one side of each with mustard.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium-high and add butter. When foam subsides, add pork, mustard side down, in a single layer and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, about 4 minutes total. Transfer to a clean plate.

Step 4

Heat remaining 2 tbsp. oil in same pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Stir in tomato and cook until it has softened slightly and released some juice, about 3 minutes. Stir in beans, minced sage, zest, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until warm and flavors have melded, about 10 minutes.

Step 5

To serve, set pork on beans and top with whole sage leaves.

Step 6

*To butterfly a pork chop, slice it horizontally with a sharp knife almost all the way through, then open it up like a book.

Pretty good

The beans end up being quite flavorful. A sprinkling of extra lemon zest, sage and pepper after cooking the beans brightens. Would add more tomato if made again. Nice and rustic. Overall a solid dish.
