Hosting a last-minute dinner party, or just looking for a way to fancy up a quick weeknight dinner? Well then, our Really Easy Pork Scaloppine is just the ticket. This dish looks fancy schmancy, but it only takes 10 minutes to make!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin or boneless pork loin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • Juice of 1 lemon

What to Do

  1. Cut pork crosswise into 8 slices. Place pork between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin (see Tip). Sprinkle pork evenly with salt and pepper.
  2.  In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter until hot. Add garlic and half the pork; cook 2 minutes on each side. Transfer pork to a platter and keep warm. Repeat process with remaining oil, butter, and pork; transfer to platter.
  3. Add capers and lemon juice to skillet; cook 30 seconds, then pour sauce over pork and serve immediately.


  • Pounding the pork tenderizes the meat and allows it to cook faster.
  • We love a side of  creamy mashed potatoes with this, so we don't waste a drop of the delicious sauce!

I rarely keep capers in the house, but you can substitute chopped green olives or dill pickle for the capers.
