Print Recipe Print Recipe 



1 lb. pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour (or a little more)
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pitted kalamata olives
2 Tbsp. capers

1. Prepare pork: Cut pork crosswise into 8 pieces. Place each pork piece between 2 sheets of wax paper; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle both sides of pork with salt and pepper.

2. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Dredge pork in flour, turning to coat; shake off excess.

3. Heat 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of pork; cook 2 minutes on each side or until pork is done. Remove pork from pan; keep warm. Repeat procedure with the remaining oil and pork.

4. Prepare sauce: Add wine and broth to pan, and bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in olives and capers; cook 4 minutes or until slightly thick. Serve sauce over pork.
