Pork in Lavender Butter Wine Sauce

I was looking through some food Blogs and I found Daily Bread Journal, which is a wonderful site. On this site Toni lists a recipe , Pork Chop with Lavender Butter, that sounded intriguing to me. I have never cooked with lavender, to tell the trough I had never tasted lavender either, so I decided to go for it. Of course like most food bloggers I am unable to follow a recipe so this one has my own twist to it.

3 Tbs. butter
1/4 red onion, diced
1 1/2 tsp. diced garlic
1 Tbs lavender leaves, cut
1/4 cut white wine
salt and pepper to taste
10-16 oz of Pork scallopini, very thin cut pork loin.
flour for dredging
Vegetable oil for frying

Heat Pan (I used Cast Iron) to hot while you season the pork scallopini with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Add oil to hot pan to about 1/4 inch and let it get hot and ripples form. lay floured pork into hot oil and brown on both sides. remove browned pork and place on plate and set aside. once all the pork is browned pour off all the oil from the pan.

Melt 1 1/2 TBS butter in pan, add onions and lavender. Saute until onion is toasted. Add wine and garlic, saute for another minute or more, till garlic is cooked. Add in the pork and for a few more minutes to heat the pork until heated through.

Just as suggested on Toni's blog I served with Roasted asparagus
