Pork and Mushroom Quesadillas

  • Yield: 4 servings


12ounces pork cutlets, pounded 1/4-inch thick
1/4cup olive oil with garlic or olive oil, divided
-- Salt, to taste
6ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/3cup green onions, sliced
8ounces Swiss cheese or Gruyere cheese, shredded
4large flour tortillas (9-to 10-inch)


  1. Stack cutlets and cut crosswise in half, then cut each stack lengthwise into matchstick-size pieces. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat; stir-fry pork for 2 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove pork from skillet with slotted spoon. Season to taste with salt.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Add mushrooms and onions to skillet; stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove from skillet. Wipe skillet with paper towels.
  3. To assemble, sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese over half of each tortilla. Top each with pork and mushroom mixture. Sprinkle each with 1/4 cup of remaining cheese. Fold tortillas in half; pressing gently.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Cook quesadillas, 2 at a time, over medium heat for 2-4 minutes or until golden and cheese is melted, turning once. Remove quesadillas from skillet; loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and quesadillas. Cut quesadillas into wedges to serve.
