  1. Step 1

    Cut pork tenderloin into eight equal slices. Pound each slice thinly between two pieces of plastic wrap. Lightly season both sides of each pounded cutlet with salt and pepper. Place a slice of prosciutto or ham and then a slice of cheese on each cutlet. Roll as you would for stuffed cabbage to completely enclose the filling.
  2. Step 2

    Dredge each rolled cutlet in flour. Then dip into egg-water mixture and then into bread crumbs, coating all sides. Heat a large skillet and add oil and butter. When sizzling but not browning, add cutlets and cook 10 to 12 minutes, turning to brown all sides. Serve two cutlets per person.
