This recipe that we learned in Normandy always ends up being a huge hit. The entire thing takes an hour from start to finish and your guests will be impressed.  Think of onion tart like onion soup, but with a crust. Or quiche, but better. Life just got a little sweeter.

We first had pork cooked this way at Alice Waters’ house. The cutlets were sliced thick from a pork loin, given them a flattening pound, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and quickly seared in a hot skillet. Pork used to be much more marbled, but now that it is “the other white meat,” this lean cut needs to be cooked more like a chicken breast.

Sometimes when pork and beef put aside their differences, the result can be so beautiful to behold it will change your whole outlook on lunch. Am I tired of sausage, reporting on it from Germany all of last week for two outlets and having spent most of yesterday putting together a sausage gallery you should look out for later this afternoon? Clearly I am not.

When your burger arrives, steaming hot, perfectly greasy, pre-cheese congealing and all that good stuff, you have a decision to make. Next to the fries are a lettuce leaf and a slice each of tomato and red onion. Which are going on your burger, and which will be left behind?
