Pork Cutlets w/ Creamy Mushroom and Caramelized Shallot Sauce


1 pound pork tenderloin
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 shallots, peeled and chopped
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 cup Kraft Savory Garlic Cooking Crème


1. Prepare pork: Cut pork crosswise into 8 pieces. Place each pork piece between 2 sheets of wax paper; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle both sides of pork with salt and pepper.

2. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Dredge pork in flour, turning to coat; shake off excess.

3. Heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of pork; cook 2 minutes on each side or until pork is done. Remove pork from pan; keep warm. Repeat procedure with another 1/2 tablespoon oil and pork.

4. Prepare Sauce: Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in the same skillet to medium heat. Saute shallots until they become soft, golden and slightly caramelized (5 to 6 minutes), stirring often and turning down heat if they are browning too much. Add mushrooms and continue to sauté until mushrooms have softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add Cooking Crème and stir until heated through.

5. Serve sauce over pork.


*Kraft Cooking Creme can be found near the other cream cheese products.

    I also add bacon (cooked) for additional flavor. I have been using this recipe for many years and is excellent. Add some veggies and a saland and you have a great meal. The cooking cream comes in diff. flavors and are awesome.
