Pork Piccata

Pork Piccata created by Rita1652

This recipe came from a Time-Life recipe book and originally called for veal; however, since veal is so expensive and difficult to come by, I use pork with the same very tasty results. I like to serve this with crusty French bread and a green salad.

    Maybe it was user error but the coating was soggy, and it just wasnt what my husband and I were expecting.
