Three Nut Pork

Thanks to Kelly, I have the recipe for Three Nut Pork, pork medallions breaded in a mixture that contains hazelnuts, macadamia nuts and pecans. I would love to try the recipe on chicken sometime as well...

1-1½ pounds pork tenderloin

½ c pecans

½ c hazelnuts

½ c macadamia nuts

1 c bread crumbs

1 c crusted bran flakes

½ c flour

3 eggs, beaten

⅓ c olive oil

⅓ c butter



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine bread crumbs, bran flakes, and nuts in food processor and pulse until they form a breading. Melt butter and oil in an oven-safe saute pan. Cut pork into slices, about ½-inch thick. Season both sides with salt and pepper, then dust with flour and dip in eggs. Coat pork in nut mixture. Saute pork on both sides in oil and butter. Transfer to oven and bake at 350 for 5 minutes.

On a side note about chicken...using this breading on chicken tenders would make for a great addition to a salad with some tomatoes, red onions, avocado, maybe some hard boiled eggs and a little bacon...yum!
