  1. Photo by: National Pork Board In medium skillet over medium-high heat, warm oil. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper and cook until browned and internal temp. reaches 155°F, about 3 mins. per side. Place chops on a plate and let rest 5 mins.

  2. Cut chops into 1/4-in. slices.

  3. Microwave tortillas on high until slightly warm and softened, about 30 sec. Place tortillas on workspace and top with pork, avocado, onion, chiles and salad greens stopping 2 inches short of one edge.

  4. Working one tortilla at a time, fold one side of tortilla up and over fillings. Tuck fillings in tightly, then fold in the 2-in. edge. Continue rolling tortilla toward the other side, securing with toothpick if necessary. Repeat with remaining tortillas and serve. Yield: 4 servings.

  5. Tip: Do not overcrowd pork cuts when sautéing. Leaving space between them will allow them to brown and cook more evenly.

  6. Buying/Handling/Storing Tip: Cutlets also may come from the leg or from a tenderloin that has been sliced crosswise and flattened. Supermarkets may label thin slices of cutlet as scaloppini.

  7. Ask Your Butcher: Traditional cutlets are great for quick meals and casual dining. They may be prepared to stand alone as a dinner entrée or may be used in sandwiches. Cutlets are best when quickly cooked, either by sautéing or grilling.

  8. About the Cut: A cutlet is a thin, tender cut of pork that is often taken from the sirloin end of the loin after the tenderloin and bones have been removed.

  9. Cooking Method: Sautéing.
