Ingredients

Pork Loin Cutlet:
Sauteed Persimmons:
Barley Risotto:

Directions

For the pork loin cutlet: Place the flour on a large plate. Heat the vegetable oil in a saute pan over medium to high heat. Sprinkle the pork with salt, pepper and fennel seeds.

Coat the cutlets with flour, place two in the pan (or as many that can fit) and add the butter. Once the cutlets are golden brown on one side, approximately 2 minutes, turn over and sear on other side. Remove from the heat. Repeat with the remaining cutlets and set aside until assembly. 

For the sauteed persimmon: Heat the butter and rosemary in a saute pan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, place the persimmons in the pan and saute until golden brown. Add the chile, sesame oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss, remove from the heat and set aside until assembly. 

For the barley risotto: Heat the olive oil in a large, high-sided saute pan over medium heat. Add the whites of the green onions and cook until tender and translucent. Add the barley and bay leaf and stir to coat the ingredients in the oil. Add the white wine and allow to reduce. Add half the chicken stock and soy sauce and stir. Once the barley has absorbed the liquid, add the remaining stock and stir. Once the liquid is absorbed and the barley is creamy and thick in texture, remove from the heat. Add the Parmesan, lemon zest, season with salt and pepper, stir and set aside. Garnish with the green onion slices before serving. 

To assemble: Spoon the barley risotto in the center of 4 serving plates. Place 1 large or 2 smaller pieces of pork loin cutlet over the barley risotto. Spoon sauteed persimmons over the pork loin cutlets and enjoy.
