What's for Dinner: Pork scallopine with lemon and caper wine sauce.

via Skinny Meals in Heels.




Pork scallopine with lemon and caper wine sauce
prep 20 minutes, cooking 10 minutes
serves 4
1 pork tenderloin (fillet) about 400-500g
bowl of plain flour for dusting
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 small shallots finely chopped
1 lemon juiced
200ml/3/4 cup chicken or vegetable stock
200ml/3/4 cup white wine
1 tablespoon capers small brined
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley finely chopped
Slice the pork into half inch/2cm thick pieces and then gently pound them flat under parchment paper using a rolling pin or heavy tin until about 3mm thick. Season well and dust with flour. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat until very hot. Heat 1 tsp of the oil and brown the pork about 1-2 minutes each side. You will need to brown them in batches adding a tiny bit of oil each time. Its important to keep the pan really hot or they will stick and need more oil. Remove from the pan and the remaining oil. Saute the shallot with some seasoning until soft. Add the lemon juice, stock and wine. Reduce until halved, about 5 minutes. Add the meat back in along with the capers. Cook for 5 minutes or until the pork is cooked through and hot. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve with boiled lentils, crushed boiled new potatoes or blanched green beans and mushrooms.

Not bad for a romantic dinner for two or a simple Sunday meal with friends. See Jennifer's blog for more delicious meals here. I am currently ordering her cookbook called " Meals in Heels. Checkout her new cookbook called " Skinny Meals in Heels"  as well.
