Serves 4 to 6

Prep time: 5 min  Cook time: 10 min

  • 1 package Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet
  • Salt, plus more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 cup flour, plus more as needed
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons chicken stock
  • 4 tablespoons capers
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  1. Slice pork loin into 1/4-inch slices and lightly pound out until thin. Season pork slices with salt and pepper on both sides, and then dredge slices in flour, shaking off the excess.

  2. Heat 4 tablespoons butter and the olive oil in large sauté pan over medium-high heat until hot. Sauté the pork slices for 3 minutes and flip, cooking the other side for 3 minutes, making sure that each side is nicely browned.

  3. Remove pork to a plate and deglaze the pan with lemon juice, chicken stock, and capers, using a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pan. Cook until the liquid reduces by about 1/3.

  4. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to slightly thicken. Place pork on platter or plates and garnish with the lemon-caper sauce and parsley to serve.
