Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
All-purpose flour 1 tablespoon
Pork tenderloin, cut diagonally into ¼ to ½-inch slices ½ pound
Olive oil 1 tablespoon
Garlic clove, minced 1
Reduced-sodium chicken broth ½ cup
Capers, drained 1 tablespoon
Juice of ½ lemon

Directions

  1. Spread out flour on a plate or shallow dish. Coat the pork with the flour, shaking off excess flour.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork to the pan (working in batches, if necessary) and cook about 2-3 minutes per side, until cooked through and golden brown. Remove pork from pan, cover, and set aside.
  3. Reduce heat to medium, add the garlic to the pan, and cook 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Return heat to medium-high, add the chicken broth, and cook for about five minutes, scraping brown bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
  4. Stir in the capers and lemon juice, pour the sauce over the pork, and serve.
