Welcome back to another edition of Tasty Tuesday! I feel like making something for dinner this evening that I have not had in a long time. Reviewing old recipes I came across the recipe for Pork Picatta! So for today, we will revisit this recipe which is very tasty and easy to make!

Ingredients
4 pork loin chops, boneless and 1″ thick
flour
salt and pepper
3 TBS butter
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup of chicken broth
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup extra dry vermouth
1/3 cup capers
parsley

Here is a side view of the pork loin chop.

Cut each chop in half length wise. You do this by placing your hand on the chop and then bring the knife from one side to the other. One at a time, place a slice of the pork into a zipper bag and pound it with a kitchen mallet until it measures about 1/4″ thick.

Turn the heat on to medium and when the butter has melted, swirl the pan so that it combines with the olive oil. While the butter is melting, dredge the slices of pork in the flour that is mixed with a bit of salt and pepper.

Working in batches, brown the pork slices on both sides.

Turn over and continue cooking

With all the pork slices now browned, we turn our attention to creating the lovely piccata sauce. We are going to deglaze our pan. Take the broth, lemon juice and vermouth and add it to the pan.

Be sure to scrape up all those lovely browned bits left by the pork and flour. Then add in the capers.

The aromas rising off the pan will have your stomach growling! Bring this up to a boil and cook for two minutes. Now add back your slices of pork. The flour we used when browning these babies will thicken our sauce!

Doesn’t that just look great? This dish feeds 2 with leftovers. Prep time is about 1/2 hour, and cooking time is about 15 minutes. Please let me know if you try this lovely dish. I am looking forward to making this for my husband and me this evening!

Thanks for stopping by, and see you next week for another edition of Tasty Tuesday! Be well… ^..^
