Saltimbocca alla Romana

Makes 4 servings


  • 8 pork cutlets (about 2 ounces each)
  • 8 fresh sage leaves
  • 8 slice prosciutto di parma
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine


Baking Directions:

Using a meat mallet, pound each pork slice to about 1/8-inch thick.

Place 1 sage leaf and 1 slice of prosciutto on each pork cutlet and fold over to form a sandwich, with the meat inside the prosciutto.

Pound lightly with the meat mallet, then secure with toothpicks.

In a 10- to 12-inch sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons of butter over high heat until it foams and subsides.

Season the flour with salt and pepper and dredge the cutlets lightly in the flour.

Add to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side.

Transfer to a platter and keep warm.

Pour the wine into the pan and bring to a boil, stirring with wooden spoon to dislodge the browned bits on the bottom of the pan.

Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and season the sauce with salt and pepper.

Return the cutlets to the pan just to reheat, then transfer to plates, pour the sauce over, and serve immediately, with lemon wedges.
