Crispy Pork Cutlets with Tonnato Sauce
Thinly sliced pork cutlets stand in for veal in this quick-and-easy weeknight version of 2020 BNC Daisy Ryan's Vitello Tonnato. While the crispy pork is irresistible, it's Ryan's take on tonnato, a tuna-based sauce, that steals the show. "The lemon is the key component, bringing contrasting brightness," Ryan says of the sauce. "It instantly makes any dish more impressive and the buttery texture is almost luxurious." Creamy and rich tonnato sauce, thickened and flavored with oil-packed tuna fillets, gets a balancing lift from fresh lemon and pickled caperberries. Reserve the oil from the tuna and whisk it together with lemon juice, salt, and pepper for a quick and easy salad dressing, if desired.
