Easiest Healthiest Pork Main-Dish Ever
January 9, 2009
As a Recipe Developer, I am always trying to create the fastest, healthiest, most flavorful main-dish ideas (for clients and my own family). Here is one for you. It’s a simple take on Pork Picatta, but it has no flour, breadcrumbs or wine. It’s a cinch to prepare; it cooks so fast; and the whole family loves it! The key is to purchase thinly sliced boneless, skinless pork loin chops. They sell these in all of the grocery stories (I bought mine at Publix). Even though they are so thin, they are not lacking flavor, especially in this recipe with capers, fresh lemon juice and Italian parsley. This dish is high in protein, low in carbs and very low-fat, so enjoy!
