We dont eat pork and I've never eveer cooked it. But so many people said the crispy parma pork wass so delcious that I am giving it a go.

Question...

Recipe says to cut your fillet into 8 equal medallions.....is that legth wise or width wise? The fillet I bought (& it looked like it was the eonly way you oculd buy it) is really long and skinny....so am I supposed to cut it like you would an eye fillet into steaks? They'd be really tall and tiny....or just chop it up??

laugh.gif Not sure my question even makes sense....!!

I'd cut it up like you would a cucumber if that makes sense, so it's in rounds.

I don't have the recipe in front of me - but if you're using a pork fillet then you would cut it up across the length - like a swiss roll, if that helps original.gif

I suspect that you probably get to smack it to flatten the pieces down into thinner/wider medallions so they cook quicker.

Please let us know how this works, I've seen that recipe and it looks yummy.

(hehe, I just recommended smacking on EB  roll2.gif )

Try a butterfly medallion. With a sharp knife, cut halfway thru the pork, then at an equal distance, cut entirely through, then spread it open like a butterfly, and beat it with the mallet.

Cut it into rounds (like you would fillet steak) and then bat it out to make thinish pieces. Don't cut it lenthways or it will be really tough to eat.
