Instructions Checklist
  • Slice tenderloin crosswise in 12 slices. Slightly flatten with palm of hand. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • In shallow dish, combine cornmeal, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Place beaten egg in second shallow dish. Dip tomato slices in egg, then coat in cornmeal mixture; set aside.

  • Add 1 Tbsp. oil to skillet. Cook tomato slices for 2 to 3 minutes each side until golden, adding oil if necessary. Serve pork and tomatoes with watercress and blue cheese. Drizzle sweet and sour sauce.
