For the herb-roasted pork loin accordion:

  • 8 oz pork loin
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 1 bunch of chives
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • flour for the breading

For the pasta & white wine sauce:

  • ⅓ cup white wine
  • ⅔ cup heavy cream
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 6 oz cooked pasta


1. Place the pork loin between 2 wooden sticks and make several evenly-spaced vertical incisions, making sure not to cut all the way through. Turn the pork loin over and make several evenly-spaced incisions at a slight diagonal, making sure not to cut all the way through. Gently spread the meat out like an accordion.

3. Heat some cooking oil in a pan over medium heat. Dredge the pork loin in flour, lightly shake off any excess flour, and then fry it in the pan on both sides for about 10 minutes until crispy. Remove the herb-roasted pork loin accordion from the pan and let the meat rest in a warm place.
