  1. Check 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
  2. Check 1/2cup all-purpose flour
  3. Check 2 large eggs
  4. Check 1cup dry bread crumbs
  5. Check 1teaspoon kosher salt
  6. Check 1/4cup (1 ounce) grated Parmesan
  7. Check 4tablespoons olive oil
  8. Check 6cups arugula, rinsed and dried
  9. Check 2 tomatoes, sliced into wedges
  10. Check 1tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  11. Check 1 lemon, quartered


  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Thinly slice the pork on the diagonal into 8 pieces. Pound the slices to a ¼-inch thickness.
  2. Place the flour on a plate. Place the eggs in a shallow bowl and beat lightly. In a separate bowl, combine the bread crumbs, salt, and Parmesan.
  3. Lightly coat the cutlets first in the flour, then in the eggs (allowing any excess to drip off), then in the bread crumb mixture.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 4 of the cutlets. Cook until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side; transfer to a baking sheet. Wipe out the skillet and repeat with the remaining oil and cutlets.
  5. Transfer the baking sheet to oven and cook until the pork is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Divide the arugula and tomatoes among individual plates. Drizzle with the extra-virgin olive oil. Serve with the cutlets and lemon wedges.
