Pork Scallopini

This dish comes together in less than 30 minutes, easy and so delicious.


  • 1 pound thin boneless pork chops (less than 1/4 inch thick)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon each butter and olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1-2 tablespoon Dijon mustard


  1. Dredge pork chops in flour. In a hot pan add oil and butter, fry for about 3 minutes on each side.
  2. Remove from the skillet and repeat with the remaining pork chops until you have cooked them all. (You might need to add more butter and oil during the cooking process.)
  3. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and in the same skillet, on low heat, mix mustard, broth, garlic, lemon juice, and whipping cream.
  4. Add the pork chops back into the skillet and cook for another 3 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately.


If you can’t serve right away, put the pan in the oven at 200 degrees. The sauce will separate a little, so stir it again before serving.

  3. Oh my you’re a good cook! I’ve flagged so many of your recipes to try. We love love pork chops 🙂

  4. That looks so good, gotta a great deal on pork chops recently and was looking for a recipe to use them in. What kind of pasta did you serve with it?

  6. Yum! I’m always looking for new pork recipes – pork has been really inexpensive lately!

  7. This looks so good! I never make pork. Probably because I don’t really know how…lol! I’ll have to do a little experiment and use your recipe!

  8. I love scallopini – so tasty and easy to cook with. Your recipe sounds delicious!

  9. Oh wow that really looks good. I’m sure my family will love it. I’m printing out this recipe and saving it to try with my brood.

  10. Yum–I love scallopini! I’ve made this with chicken as well. You can also cheat and use bottled alfredo sauce in a pinch, just doctor it up with garlic and lemon juice, and some lemon zest. I think I used thyme too.

  11. This looks delish! I will be saving this and trying it. Thanks for sharing!

  12. I have got to try this!! Thank you!

  13. Mmmmm! I love scallopini but have only ever had it when made with chicken – thanks for broadening my horizons a bit! Looks delicious!

  14. I made this last week, and it was a hit. It was so delicious. That sauce is amazing. I was especially happy when I could scoop up some of the sauce with my green beans!! Thanks for sharing 🙂 YUMMY!!!

  15. Trying this tonight! It looks great!

    Many recipes that I come across on blogs & websites look delicious. My problem is that often the recipes don’t seem to be too healthy. The Pork Scallopini is case in point. It takes whipping cream which I wouldn’t use. I know there are some healthy substitutions, but sometimes when recipes are “healthified” the results are, shall we say, less than desirable. The quandry: Finding recipes which are healthy, delicious as well as cost effective. Is it possible?

      As for substituting for whipping cream, I’ve found that low fat sour cream works pretty well, and there is only a minor difference in taste.

  17. I made these tonight and had some friends over to help eat it. It was a huge hit with all of us and so easy to make. Thanks for sharing, keep them coming!!

  18. Linda, I was considering substituting plain yogurt but didn’t want to veer with friends coming over. If you try it that way post a review. I’ll try it next time I make these.

    Wow–I just made this meal tonight and I have to say: That. Was. Awesome!

    Thank you for publishing such an excellent recipe.

  20. Excellent recipe and easy to make! Made it tonight and sure will make it again soon.

  21. I did not have whipping cream – I used greek yogurt instead and it still was delicious!

  22. I’m making this for dinner tonight for me and my husband. I’m not normally a pork fan, but I’m almost done and I can tell this is going to be delicious! Thanks so much for a great and easy recipe.

  23. I make this all the time! We LOVE it. I sometimes use chicken cutlets, but it ALWAYS delicious! Thank you for the recipe.

  24. I’m making this yet again (I posted last on 10/2/13) tomorrow night for our 24th anniversary dinner. I love to serve it with some buttered Parmesan orzo and a fresh salad. Yum!

  25. Frances says:

    It looks delicious but I can’t print it out. I had to re-type it and then print it out.

  26. Frances says:

    I could not get it to print out, so had to retype it and then print it.. Sounds yummy!
