12 Days of Christmas-Michael Symon’s Pork and Apple Scallopini for Favorite Celebrity Chef #SundaySupper

Here is my second installment of the 12 Days of Christmas in conjunction with #SundaySupper. I loooooove celebrity chefs and Michael Symon tops my list. I watch him everyday on The Chew, never miss an episode. I love his wit and humor never mind his wonderful style of cooking. Fast and simple are a lot of his meals as in his 5 minute Meals.

I wanted to add this to my 12 Days of Christmas as we are all running in one direction or the other and Michael’s quick meals are a big help. The one I made for you today is easy and so fabulous that company would love it. You can be out and about doing what needs to be done and then home with company and serving this delicious holiday meal. It took me all of 20 minutes to pull together from refrigerator to plate. I am not as fast as Michael is and he always has a little helper on the side in Carla, Clinton or Daphne. I changed a few things from his original recipe due to availability of items. There wasn’t fresh sage leaves at the grocery store so I used ground, there wasn’t apple cider so I used apple juice. You get the picture right?

You want to be enjoying your company over the holidays not slaving in the kitchen and this recipe can help you achieve that. Serve this with a simple salad and you have dinner on the table in no time.

A fast and easy holiday meal!!
  • 1.5 lb. pork tenderloin, cut into ¾ inch rounds and pounded thinly
  • 2 granny smith apples
  • 1 gala apple
  • ¼ lb. ham steak
  • ¼ tsp. ground sage
  • 200 ml. apple juice
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 5 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Flour for dredging
  1. Season the thinly pounded out pork with salt and pepper and then dredge in flour, shaking off the excess. Heat a large pan over medium high heat with 3 Tbsp. of the olive oil. Carefully lay pork in and cook two minutes a side. You may have to do this in two batches, don't over crowd.
  2. Meanwhile, dice the ham and apples. Heat the 2 Tbsp. of olive oil in a second large fry pan on medium high heat and add the ham cooking for 1 minute, browning slightly. Add the apples and cook for 2 min. Add the apple juice and and sage and turn up to high for 2 minutes to reduce. Add in the butter and toss to emulsify. Finish with the apple cider vinegar. Adjust seasoning.
  3. Plate the apple ham hash over the pork and enjoy!!

    WOW, this sounds fabulous!! I too enjoy the Chew and try to watch it everyday too, Michael’s 5 minute meals fascinate me! I wish I had all the ingredients because I have a pork tenderloin in the fridge dying to be cooked! I may have to make a trip to the store now! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sarah says

    I love Michael Symon too! We both agreed on that already but this dish looks so simple and delicous. He was my favorite to win the next iron chef and I love his laugh. Beautiful dish Tara!

    ThanK’s for posting. I found this recipe on the chew website today but there were no comments as to how good it was so I’m glad to know that it is. I’m going to the store to get the ingredients as we speak. thanks
