I can't thank you enough for this delicious fast and easy recipe. I didn't have white wine so I substituted chicken broth. Upon reading another review I decided just to pour the excess oil out of the pan and use the drippings to help as a thickening agent. A terrific recipe and the sauce is just wonderful! We loved it! Thanks again!<br/>P.S. I made this again. I bought very thinly sliced boneless pork chops and I didn't have to spend time pounding it out. I added about a tablespoon of flour to the drippings and let it cook for about a minute on Med. low. Then added all the good stuff. It was perfect! There is so much you can do with this recipe!

We had a pork tenderloin to cook and love capers so picked this recipe to try. I was very, very easy! And had great flavor. I think I would like a thicker sauce but the pork and angel hair pasta we had with it soaked up the sauce flavor just fine. Thanks for a good and easy recipe!

WOW!! This was awesome!! I had never cooked scallopini before, and it was easy and the caper sauce was excellent. I made it for guests and they raved about it. I will definitely make this again. I forgot to add the second tablespoon of butter, but it was good anyway!!!
