A classic Italian recipe, Saltimbocca is traditionally made with veal. The word Saltimbocca means “jump in the mouth”. There is usually prosciutto used in the dish which gives it that “jump in the mouth” flavor.
Pork Saltimbocca Roasted Potatoes and Onions
This easy to make pork saltimbocca roasted potatoes and onions recipe has only 3 ingredients and it’s baked in one pan.
I don’t eat veal, but I found lots of recipes using chicken and pork that were titled ‘saltimbocca’ in the recipe. The one recipe that caught my eye was from bon appetite that looked really easy and had only 3 ingredients. Couldn’t get easier than that.
I had everything I needed so I didn’t have to make supermarket run. I even had the prosciutto in the fridge which was a leftover from Friday’s pizza topping. Though I didn’t have sage so I used fresh parsley. The parsley is definitely a far cry from sage but we are getting our ‘jump in the mouth’ flavor from the prosciutto.
Let’s get started on this pork saltimbocca roasted potatoes and onions recipe. Only 3 ingredients can’t be too difficult to prepare.
Prep Tips for Pork Saltimbocca Roasted Potatoes and Onions:
- I sliced the onions just a little more than 1/4 inch thick and the potatoes just under that since the onions tend to melt if too thin and the potatoes will take too long if they are too thick.
- Roast the onions and potatoes first for about 20 minutes, then add the meat, etc. and continue to cook.
- Flexible recipes are important to us busy moms/caretakers/CFO’s/,etc. and I’m certainly not trying to impress the ‘gourmand’, so it’s o.k. to substitute. You can always use chicken which is more economical and takes less time to cook.
- You can eliminate the wine. Orange juice can be substituted and will give you the same results.
