Pan Fried Pork Cutlets Seasoned with Herbs and Boiled Baby Potatoes


  • 4 ½-inch- thick bone-in pork chops (about 2 pounds), patted dry with paper towels
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons plus ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zest finely grated (about 1 teaspoon), plus 2 tablespoons fresh juice
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ bunch cilantro leaves with tender stems, chopped
  • 1lb Baby potatoes
  • 3 tbsp. Elle & Vire unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil


  • Season pork chops generously on one side with olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, lemon zest. Turn and season other side generously, then sprinkle evenly with ½ tsp. sugar.
  • Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Carefully add chops sugared side down and cook, gently shaking skillet occasionally but not disturbing pork, until underside is caramelized and chops are deeply browned all over, about 5 minutes.
  • Turn chops and reduce heat to low. Cook just until second side is opaque, about 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat and let chops rest 10 minutes in skillet (the cooking will carry over and finish the chops while they rest).
  • Meanwhile, whisk lemon zest and juice, garlic, mustard, oregano, cumin, and remaining ½ tsp. sugar in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in remaining ¼ cup oil until emulsified. Fold in cilantro and season with salt and lots of pepper.
  • Spoon half of dressing onto a platter. Transfer chops to platter, then whisk any juices that have accumulated in skillet into remaining dressing. Spoon dressing over top of pork. Swipe pork through dressing as you eat.
  • Peel and Boil potatoes in salted water.
  • Melt butter and sauté herbs, add boiled potatoes and mix.
