2 pounds pork tenderloin, pounded to 1/4 inch thickness

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 2 tablespoons

8 tablespoons butter

2 cups grated Asiago cheese

16 slices prosciutto, thinly sliced

2 cups chicken broth

4 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves, plus 16 whole leaves

2 cups vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Coat pork lightly in flour, brushing off excess. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in frying pan, add pork and cook quickly 1 minute per side. Remove from pan and continue cooking the remaining pork. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of cheese to each pork tenderloin and top with 2 prosciutto slices. Bake in oven for 5 to 6 minutes until cheese is bubbling.
  3. In another frying pan, over medium heat, add remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and stir in 2 tablespoons of flour. Cook flour and butter mixture for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add chicken broth and chopped sage and cook until thickened. Serve over pork tenderloins.
  4. In heavy saucepan, heat oil and deep-fry sage leaves for garnish.
