    Bread-crumb-coated pork medallions are golden on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside. The caper-yogurt sauce provides a burst of briny flavor. Courtesy Gourmet Magazine.

      We really enjoyed this. 2 out of 3 loved the sauce, #3 preferred a squirt of fresh lemon. My teen LOVED the pork and the sauce. I could easily eat the sauce by the spoonfuls :D . I used a brine to soak the medallions in (1 teaspoon salt + 1 C milk) for one hour before cooking. Then prepped with flour, egg wash and bread crumbs. I used Panko bread crumbs, personal preference. The result was a very crispy light coating. Served with sautéed mushrooms, buttered egg noodles and a salad. Just a wonderful dinner that was quick and easy. Thanks for sharing Sandi. It's keeper!

      In a word: heavenlirichalicious. I know... but it's all of those things, so it works. The sauce makes this dish, and it's not heavy or overpowering like you might think with the capers. I did have to sub sour cream for the yogurt because I didn't have any. I threw all the ingredients into the food processor and buzzed them until they were fairly smooth then chilled. I had to sub seasoned bread crumbs for the plain, but I don't think it overly affected the flavor of this. This also took an extra 5 minutes in my oven to be cooked all the way thru, but the flavor was so good I'm willing to keep it at 5 stars... ;-) I'll definitely make again when I have pork loin in the house.

      This was very good, and simple to make. I added a bit of mint and garlic to the caper sauce. Thanks for the posting.
