Recipe by Penny Stettinius
This was one of the first recipes I tried from Epicurious. I serve it with easy to prepare Uncle Ben's wild rice/long grain rice combo and sauteed cherry tomatoes. This meal can be for company or an easy week night dinner at the kitchen table. So versatile!

I probably would have normally given this four stars, but it was just so quick and easy, I had to give it five! Excellent flavours. We love anything with lemon and capers, and the pork was so tender! Thanks for a great recipe!
