Pork Cutlet with Lemon Cream Sauce

This was SOOOOOOO amazing. I ate three cutlets, and it was absolute heaven. The flavors and textures were perfect, and the best part was that from start to finish, this took about 15 minutes. I get the thin cutlets (Trader Joe’s, and I have even seen them at Walmart!). My 10 year old helped me to make this, and it really could not have been easier. If I wasn’t so damned hungry, I could’ve thickened the sauce even more, but it really was amazing just the way that it was. Each serving per cutlet is only about a tablespoon of sauce, so it is really easy to fit into macros. A little really goes a long way.



  • 1.5 lbs thinly sliced pork (about 1/3 of an inch slices)
  • 1 Tbsp plus 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • juice of one lemon (more if you like it to have a kick)
  • salt and pepper


Season pork on both sides with salt and pepper. In a small saucepan, combine 1 Tbsp butter and onions. Allow to saute for about 4 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, and the heavy whipping cream.  Simmer for 10 minutes. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Cook the pork for 2 minutes on each side. Add lemon juice to the sauce and stir. Pour sauce over pork and serve immediately.
