The parasite that causes trichinosis has been virtually eliminated from commercially grown pork. It is thus not necessary to cook it until it is completely white. Today's pork is so lean that overcooking makes it tough. Pork cutlets are done when they reach an internal temperature of 160F (70C).
Heat some oil or butter in a stovetop skillet, or use a nonstick pan. Sprinkle cutlets with salt and pepper or herbs and spices and cook quickly at medium-high heat, turning once, until the meat at the center is white but still juicy, a total of 4 to 5 minutes.
Oil cutlets and place on the grill directly over hot coals. Cook cutlets until white but still juicy in the center, turning once, a total of 4 to 5 minutes.
Heat oil or butter in a stovetop skillet. Sprinkle cutlets with salt and pepper or herbs and spices and brown for one minute on each side. When all cutlets are browned, return them to the skillet, add broth, wine, or other cooking liquid, and simmer until done, 2 to 3 minutes.
