I love pork, my hubby loves veal, or even chicken, which is fabulous because you can exchange the pork for any of the above. This goes great with a tossed salad and a glass of wine, or two! I personally add extra wine, butter and olive oil, so that I have lots of the wine sauce.I recommend that you try it by the recipe and then you can adjust the sauce ingredients to suit you. Some like a lot of sauce like I do, others don't. I found this in a paperback at the check stand.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs pork tenderloin
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil

- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons capers
- hot cooked fettuccine
- lemon slice

- Cut each tenderloin into 6 (2 oz) medallions.
- Place between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/4-"inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin.
- Combine flour, salt, and pepper; dredge pork in flour mixture.
- Cook half of the pork in 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

I never made picatta with pork before so I thought, what the heck. It was a very satisfying and delicious meal. I made it and had lemon pasta on the side. Just yummy!
Absolutely delicious! this would also be great with chicken too, I added in garlic powder and cayenne pepper into the four mixture and used seasoned salt, fresh lemon juice is a must for this, I also increased the capers because I love them!, this was made for KK's Chef's Pick forum game and thoroughly enjoyed with a small side salad, thank you for posting Di!
Fork tender and easy to prepare. Loved the wine/lemon sauce over rice! We didn't bread the tenderloin pieces and added some artichoke hearts with the capers. Definitely worthy of five stars as both a family and a company dish. Thanks.
