Ingredients and Preparation
|All-purpose flour||1 tablespoon|
|Pork tenderloin, cut diagonally into ¼ to ½-inch slices||½ pound|
|Olive oil||1 tablespoon|
|Garlic clove, minced||1|
|Reduced-sodium chicken broth||½ cup|

- Spread out flour on a plate or shallow dish. Coat the pork with the flour, shaking off excess flour.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork to the pan (working in batches, if necessary) and cook about 2-3 minutes per side, until cooked through and golden brown. Remove pork from pan, cover, and set aside.
- Reduce heat to medium, add the garlic to the pan, and cook 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Return heat to medium-high, add the chicken broth, and cook for about five minutes, scraping brown bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
- Stir in the capers and lemon juice, pour the sauce over the pork, and serve.
