Pork Tenderloin Piccata



Ingredients:
1/4   cup all-purpose flour
2   tablespoons yellow cornmeal
1/2   teaspoon salt
1/4   teaspoon ground black pepper
1   pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
1/4   cup butter or margarine, divided
1/2   cup chicken broth
2   tablespoons lemon juice
2   teaspoons lemon zest
1   garlic clove, pressed
1   tablespoon snipped fresh parsley
2   tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed (optional)
Directions:
  1. Combine flour, cornmeal, salt and black pepper in shallow dish. Slice pork into eight 2-inch-thick slices. Place one slice into a resealable plastic food storage bag. Using flat side of Meat Tenderizer, flatten pork to a 1/4-inch thickness. Coat both sides with flour mixture, shaking off excess. Repeat with remaining pork slices; discard any remaining flour mixture.
  2. Heat large (10-inch) skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Place 3 tablespoons of the butter in skillet; swirl until melted. Add half of the pork slices to skillet; cook 3 minutes on each side or until pork is golden brown and centers are no longer pink. Remove from skillet to platter; keep warm. Repeat with remaining pork.
  3. Add broth, lemon juice, zest and garlic to skillet. Heat over medium heat 1-2 minutes. Add remaining butter to skillet; swirl until melted. If desired, sprinkle parsley and capers over pork. Carefully pour sauce over pork slices; serve immediately.
