Pork can be an easy and elegant weeknight supper. Don't forget the red wine!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Flatten pork rounds using meat mallet, then season with garlic powder and black pepper.
  2. Heat oil over medium high heat.
  3. Add pork to pan and saute until browned, and almost cooked through (a couple of minutes per side).
  4. Remove pork to holding plate.
  5. Add shallots to skillet, and saute for 1 minute.
  6. Add chicken broth and wine: boil until sauce has reduced and is thick enough to coat the spoon (about 10 minutes).
  7. Mix in capers and mustard.
  8. Return pork to pan.
  9. Simmer until pork is heated through again.
  10. This goes very well with small new potatoes and a lovely, fresh Caesar salad.

Wonderful, S'kat! I didn't change anything, but I did use salt-cured capers, which I soaked then drained. The other addition I made (just a personal preference) was 2 tbl. heavy cream at the end to the sauce. Otherwise all the same. Very simple and quick to prepare, and very tasty! No leftovers at all. I served it with rice pilaf and some glazed carrots. Thanks for the quick recipe!

Really delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and was rewarded with a great dinner enjoyed by the family and a guest. This went well with crispy roasted potatoes and broccoli. I wouldn't change anything about this and will remember it next time I don't want to cook pork tenderloin in the oven. Thanks for posting it!
