To make a pan sauce, measure liquids and flavoring into a 1-cup Pyrex measuring cup before sautéing your cutlets or boneless chops. When your cutlets are done cooking, remove them and pour the contents of the measuring cup into the hot skillet; boil until the liquid reduces by half. Tilt the skillet so that the reduced liquid is at one side of the pan and whisk in the enrichment until the sauce is smooth and glossy. Take the pan off the heat and spoon a portion of the sauce over each cutlet or chop and serve immediately. These pan sauces are designed to yield 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons per cutlet. If you decide you want a bit more, raise the total measurement of your liquid ingredients to 2/3 cup, and if you like a richer sauce, whisk in an extra tablespoon of butter.
