Cooking up scrumptious paillards with Matt Lauer on The Today Show

I have always enjoyed cooking paillards.  Paillard is a culinary term used to describe cuts of meat that are thinly sliced and lightly pounded to make them even thinner.  The meat is then quickly cooked, either by sautéing or grilling.  In the January issue of my magazine, Martha Stewart Living, there are some really delicious recipes for fast and elegant meals using chicken, pork, and veal paillards.  You can purchase thin cuts of meat in many grocery stores, but you will save money if you buy larger pieces and pound them out yourself.  This week on the Today show, I showed Matt Lauer just how easy, fast, and delectable these recipes are.  If you want to impress your family and friends with a pretty amazing meal, check out Dinner in no Time Flat in the January issue.
