Basic Pork Preparation
Place the flour and seasonings in a large zip lock bag and seal.
Shake until all ingredients are well mixed. Set aside and prepare your pork.
Cut the pork loin into two inch medallions and set aside. If you use country style ribs, cut each rib in to two pieces. Add the olive oil to a large saute pan over medium high heat. Place 3-4 pieces of pork in the zip lock bag and shake to coat evenly with the seasoned flour. Add the pork to the hot saute pan and sear on both sides until a golden brown color begins to form. Remove the meat from the heat and set aside. Deglaze the hot pan with the Marsala wine, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pan. This will add an additional dimension of flavor to your dish. Again, set aside while you load the crock pot liner.
