We regularly include pork into our family meals, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work with The National Pork Board highlighting various cuts of pork. It has allowed me to think outside of the recipes that I normally prepare and expanded our tastes to include so many more using this lean protein.

Pork and Mushroom Quesadillas

This week, I wanted to prepare the Pork and Mushroom Quesadillas for a quick-fix lunch. I played with ingredient combination a bit to make sure each person’s quesadilla included ingredients they would enjoy, which made this lunch disappear nearly as quickly as it was prepared.

The quesadillas were made using pork sirloin cutlets which cut relatively quickly for a stir-fry or for including in wraps and recipes like this quesadilla. As I quickly prepared it, I thought of all the traditional chicken recipes that I could easily use cooked pork sirloin cutlets.

Here’s how I prepared the quesadillas.

A delicious quick-fix meal of pork and mushroom quesadillas.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 12 ounces pork sirloin cutlets, pounded 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • 6 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/3 cup green onions, diced
  • 2 cups Swiss cheese, or Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 4 (9 to 10-inch) tortillas


  • 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 from skillet with slotted spoon. Salt to taste.
  • Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to skillet. Add mushrooms and onions and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove from skillet and wipe skillet clean with paper towels.

  • Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Cook quesadillas, 2 at a time, over medium heat for 2-4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Remove from skillet and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve.
