At Saturday's Rittenhouse Market I swapped canele and Florentines for a splendid pork tenderloin from CherryGrove Farm. I was stumped about what to do with it. I was scheming on a way to use it with these great looking fresh coconuts I saw at Hung Vuong. I didn't want coconut curry i was thinking more like a savory coconut flan or those fried coconut milk balls that go with Chin Kiang pork. I never arrived at a happy decision with those inspirations. However, as i was about the give up and make an predictable go-to dish, I remembered those beautiful chicken eggs. Voila Wiener schnitzel a la Holstein.
Maybe the super premium pork deserved better treatment. Maybe not. This dish was super tasty. Great eggs and great pork are very happy partners. Anchovies, capers, lemon and asparagus add elements that make this dish classic.
