Many French restaurant chefs prefer sauces to be made ahead of time and the sauce is placed under the sauteed meat. Many French cafe chefs do not mind using the Italian method of preparing the sauce and sauteed meat in the same pan, because less preparation time is involved. Lunch at a French cafe can be very busy and a cafe kitchen is run efficiently with a minimal staff.
Sauteing the pork loin cutlets, then simmering the pork cutlets in the sauce as it reduces guarantees that the pork will be fully cooked and tender. There are no worries about undercooked or overcooked dried out pork when this style of saute method is used.

The entree in the photographs was served with jalapeno and Monterey Jack Cheese flavored polenta that was piped onto the plate with a star tipped pastry bag. The plum tomato was seasoned with sea salt and coarse ground black pepper then grilled with olive oil in a skillet. Steamed snow peas are a nice quick cooking vegetable.
I used to cook a veal cutlet with this sauce at a cafe that had a steady flow of opera clientele from the opera house next door. Our parking lot looked like a Rolls Royce dealership! This entree takes less than ten minutes to make. Yum! ... Shawna
