Slice pork loin into 1-inch slices and flatten to1/4-inch slices using a meat mallet. Combine flour, garlic salt, and pepper on a dish and dredge flattened loin slices in the seasoned flour. Discard any remaining flour.
In a 12" skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and add all of the loin slices to the skillet at the same time. Brown loin slices 5 minutes per side, reducing heat if necessary to prevent splattering the hot oil and over browning the meat.
