How to Make Pork Scallopini with Lemon Butter, Caper sauce
- Season pork with salt and pepper. (or any of your favorite seasonings to taste)
- Dredge in 1/2 c. flour. (Reserving the other 1 T. for the sauce, later)
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
- Cook the pork chops 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a warm plate. (Do not cover. This will cause the breading to get soft). I heat my oven and then shut it down so that it is slightly warm and place the plate of pork chops in the oven.
- Drain excess oil from skillet, except for approximately 1/2 tablespoon.
- Replace pan back on the stove top and add 1 T. butter and 1 T. flour to the reserved oil in pan. Stir until combined.
- Add the white wine and lemon juice, stirring constantly. Cook, while stirring, until the sauce starts to thicken.
- Add the capers and the remaining tablespoon of butter, stirring slowly to incorporate.
- Serve with the sauce over the chops or on the side. It's all a matter of preference. (I like mine over my chops. D.H. likes his on the side.)
- Top with a sprinkle of fresh parsley for color.
