Italian Pork Cutlet Florentine

Italian Pork Cutlet Florentine

This Italian Pork Cutlet Florentine recipe made with juicy, breaded pork chops and many other delicious flavors is such a simple way to mix up your dinner routine!



  1. Put flour, eggs and bread crumbs in three separate shallow bowls.
  2. Season pork with salt and pepper, then coat each pork chop with flour. Dip in egg, then coat in bread crumbs on both sides.
  3. Over medium-high heat, add 3/4 cup olive oil to a frying pan or skillet until oil faintly smokes.
  4. Add pork to skillet in small batches, using tongs to turn over when edges turn golden-brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Cook until the internal temperature reaches between 145 degrees F. (medium-rare) to 160 degrees F. (medium). Check by inserting a digital meat thermometer halfway into thickest part of pork chop.
  5. Remove pork chops from pan and drain on paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with rest of pork.
  6. Heat the remaining olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat; add spinach and tomatoes to pan. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes, until spinach is just wilted and spinach and tomatoes are heated through.
  7. Transfer pork chops to clean platter; top each with spinach and tomato mixture.
  8. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and garnish with lemon zest.
  9. You can also drizzle some lemon vinaigrette over the top for extra lemon flavor.
