Lemon Pork Piccata

This dish is so quick and easy to make that there is no real recipe.
It all depends on the quantity you want to make and how many people are going to eat.
A good dish to make for company.
  • 1 1/2 lb. Pork Tenderloin
  • 1/2 cup of seasoned flour with (salt and pepper according to taste)
  • 2 eggs, beaten with a tablespoon of water
  1. Cut the tenderloin into 1/4 inch medallions, sliced at an angle against the grain.
  2. Pound til thin with a heavy skillet or mallet. This will not take much pounding since the meat is already so tender.*
  3. Coat it with seasoned flour.
  4. Dip into the egg mixture.
  5. Then dip once more into the flour.
  6. Brown in a little oil until golden in color.
  7. Squeeze a fresh lemon over with desired amount of juice.
  8. Garnish with chopped parsley, and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
* If you have the time and you would like you can marinade the meat after it is pounded with a squeeze of fresh lemon, a clove or two of minced garlic and a drizzle of olive oil, but it is not necessary.


  1. Looks delicious and I love 'simple to make' dishes.

  2. Oooh, I know what I'll be having for dinner this week! I actually have some pork t-loin I took out of the freezer to grind up for meatballs (mixed with beef). I had cut the pork in half and wrapped up the individual pieces, then put them all in a plastic bag to freeze. The idea was to be able to take one out at a time. Of course, they all stuck together anyway, LOL! So now I have a surfeit of pork t-loin. Glad to find an easy recipe to use it up! Thanks!

  3. Reminds me of Schnitzel. I love it!

  4. This looks real good Charlotte. I appreciate recipes for Pork because I grew up kosher and never had experience at home growing up cooking pork.

  5. Hi there,

    My friend sent me here after I begged for recipes on my own blog - glad I came!

    This looks fabulous! One question (forgive me if it's a silly one) for you: when you say "seasoned flour", what have you seasoned it with? Salt and pepper, or something else?

    Thanks so much :)

  6. Jen, that is right, seasoned flour simply means with salt and pepper, I will go and make that easier to understand in the recipe. I hope you find lots of recipes to enjoy on our blog!

  7. I just made this dish for my family dinner last night. You are so right, so simple, so good. I squeezed fresh lemon juice over it before I served it. It was melt in your mouth.

  8. My niece made this for supper tonight. First it was a real treat to have someone invite us over, then she made this fantastic meal. She told me that all the recipes came from this blog. Where have you been all my life. Fantastic recipe, I am definitely going to making this for us sometime soon.
