Pork Piccata

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Lusil

This is one of my husband's favorite recipes. He considers this comfort food. I found this recipe in a magazine (can't remember which) and made a few tweaks to suit our tastes. I typically serve it over garlic mashed potatoes to catch the delicious lemony sauce. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The recipe has all the elements of flavor but using that much chicken broth simply washed the bread crumbs from the pork. I think perhaps a little white wine, less chicken broth and a bit of corn starch to add the right consistency to the sauce. It does go well w/roasted cauliflower as a side. It is a recipe that I will build on and the idea of using pork rather than veal is good especially since my husband loves pork and veal is not something that I can come by easily where I live. Thanks for the idea
