Wonderful Pork Piccata!

This was my new recipe of the week, and it was a HUGE hit with the entire family. It was so tender and tasty and just different....we LOVED it. I will most definitely be purchasing pork cutlets again to make this.

Pork Piccata

6-8 thin boneless pork cutlets (1.5-2 lbs.)
1/3-1/2 c. flour
Salt and pepper to taste
2-3 T. olive oil
1 c. chicken broth
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. butter

Season flour with salt and pepper. Dredge cutlets in the mixture, shaking off excess. Discard any remaining flour.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add the cutlets and saute for 2-4 minutes per side, until cooked through. Remove and keep warm.

Add broth to skillet and simmer 2 min., scraping the skillet sides and bottom. Stir in lemon juice and butter and stir to melt butter. Return the pork to the skillet and simmer gently for 2 minutes, until fully heated.

This was wonderful with rice and "fried" apples and the kids declared it an absolute keeper.

Let me know if you try it!!!!

I've had this bookmarked for more than a year and finally tried it. We all really liked it.

I used boneless pork chops, but I think next time I'll pound them so they are more like cutlets.
