It’s time. Thanksgiving is only seven days away — which means that between now and next Thursday, I’ll be spending a lot of extra time in the kitchen (and I bet you will, too). With that thought in mind, I’ve dedicated this entire week to making the fastest, freshest meals from the Everyday Food December issue. Today, I’m sauteing pork cutlets in a cherry-and-shallot sauce. The result is a vibrant meal that looks far too stunning to be this simple. Did I mention that it takes just 25 minutes from start to finish? It’s true. Try out this easy dinner tonight and have plenty of time left over to get a head start on the holiday!
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
While this is delicious when made with frozen cherries, sour cherries will add tremendous depth and tanginess to the entire meal. Use them whenever available.

PREP: 20 MINS TOTAL TIME: 25 MINS
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch slices and each pounded 1/4 inch thick
Coarse salt and pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 large shallots, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 cups frozen cherries, thawed (12 ounces)
2 teaspoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger
Cooked polenta, for serving
Place flour in a shallow dish. Season pork with salt and pepper, then coat with flour, shaking off excess.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Working in batches, cook pork until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent loosely with foil.
Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil and shallots, and cook until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Season. Add wine and broth and cook, stirring, until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add cherries and ginger and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Return pork to pan along with any accumulated juices and cook until sauce has thickened slightly, 2 minutes. Serve over polenta.
