Pork Medallions with Capers and Cream

by Angie

I saw this on Pinterest the other day and fell in love:


Of course that would never work in my house because my husband and youngest son don’t eat green things.  Well, they will eat peas and green beans, sometimes limas, but that’s usually it.  So I altered the recipe a bit.  My version is certainly less healthy than the original, so click on the picture first and see if your family will eat it.  If not, come back here and try my version.

1/2 Pork loin, sliced and pounded (I ended up with seven medallions.)
2 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp capers
1/2 cup cream

Salt and pepper pork, then saute in olive oil over med-high heat until lightly brown. Set aside.
Add flour to drippings in pan and whisk briefly.
Add garlic, capers, and cream.
Stir until thickened (It doesn’t take long.)
Serve pork medallions with a dollop of cream sauce on each. Not too much, it’s very rich.

So… tell me about capers. I’ve never cooked with them, and I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten them. What do they taste like?

They have a very mild flavor – my guys will all eat them! They’re in the aisle with olives and pickles, and I think they have kind of a garlicky flavor, but greener. Good with anything Italian.

Your recipe sounds great. Anything with capers and I’m in.
