    Like many interesting dishes, pork escalope originated in France. The name turned out to be consonant with "nutshell" (eschalope - French), which characterizes a hard golden crust. The experience was adopted in Russia back in the time of Peter I, when the expansion of French cuisine slowly conquered the East. In the French manner, the pork escalope recipe was perfect: the meat was beaten thinly, salted, rubbed with a pepper mixture and fried in hot oil on a grill or pan. No breading, no interrupting the taste and smell of onions, carrots and other things.

    How to prepare an escalope?

    2. Meat processing is also very important. Rinse the meat medallions and pat dry with paper towels to achieve the crispiness that the pan-fried pork escalope is famous for. Otherwise, the dish runs the risk of being boiled, not fried.

      We wash the meat, dry it thoroughly with a paper towel

    3. Beat the meat with a finely notched hammer. For convenience, the cutting board can be covered with cling film. The result should be very thin slices of meat, with a maximum thickness of 0.5 cm.

    7. Fry the pork in hot oil, turning the pieces over several times. If you choose an escalope recipe in the oven, you will not be able to turn the meat over. Therefore, the crust will form only from above. And the pork escalope in the oven will have to be watered with rendered fat so as not to overdry the meat.
