This juicy Lemony Pork Piccata is served in the most luxurious butter sauce, just like you’d find at a trattoria in Italy! What makes something ‘piccata’? Well there are a few key ingredients, along with special cooking methods.

Firstly, the meat (or fish) is sliced or flattened until thin. Then it’s gently sauteed, before being served in a buttery sauce, made sour with lemon juice and capers. Those are the basics. I enrich my sauce with chicken broth and white wine, along with fried shallots and chopped parsley. Instead of slicing the pork, I use a meat mallet to flatten it, which also works to tenderize the meat.
