    Rita~'s Note:

    AWARD yourself with these oval edible Medals carved and pounded thin and tender, Decorated with diced red onions Gems and Precious green capers. To Embellish more feel free to add artichoke hearts and olives. This is quick cooking so have all the ingredients ready as well as your sides prepared. Adorn over pasta, creamy polenta, fluffy rice, couscous or mashed potatoes. Based on Veal Piccata making this dish more economical by using lean pork. The pork is lean and trimmed keeping it low in fat and using little olive oil no butter making this healthier. Veal or chicken can replace the pork.
