Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 12 oz boneless pork chops
  • 1 shallot chopped
  • 2 tbsp Mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ packet saffron powder
  • ½ cup vegetable/ meat stock
  • 1 oz lean smoked pancetta or speck diced
  • Handful fresh parsley
  • Salt pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a large skillet pan melt butter, add chopped shallot and diced pancetta or speck.
    Let cook for about a minute. Add pork chops. Cover skillet with a lid and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, heat vegetable or meat stock or prepare stock from the bullion. Notice that you’ll need bouillon only for ½ cup of water, so adjust accordingly. Once stock is boiling, add saffron and Mascarpone cheese. Stir well until dissolved.
  • Flip pork slices and cook under a cover for another 3-5 minutes. Remove meat from the pan keeping the sauce in the pan. Add to it stock with saffron and Mascarpone and bring it to boil.
  • Transfer the sauce in a food processor and pulse it until smooth creamy texture. You can also do this using a blender.
  • Put pork chops back into the pan and over them with saffron Mascarpone sauce.
  • Let simmer for another 2 minutes until sauce is lightly reduced and creamy.
    Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle generously with fresh parsley.
  • Serve hot with a salad, potatoes or rice.

Notes

Note 1: If you used stock that had already salt in it you might not need to add any extra salt.
Note 2: If you use saffron threads instead of powder, steep them first in 2 tbsp of water, drain and add to stock together with Mascarpone.
