Looks really good, Rocky. I am a big lemon/butter/caper/garlic fan, but rarely make a "real" piccata dish. (I often use that sauce on roasted broccoli!) I think I will have to give your pork medallions a try!Made some of my "Poor Man's 'Veal' Piccata" for tomorrow night's dinner. Great recipe if you want to try it. It is made with pork tenderloin and represents a huge savings over veal.
1 pork tenderloin
Eggs, beaten or Eggbeaters for breading
2 C Italian breadcrumbs
1 C Flour
1 t. Garlic, granulated, or to taste
Parsley, 1 cup chopped
2 T Capers
1/4 C Lemon juice
1/2 C White wine
2 T Butter
Olive oil, as needed for frying
S&P, to taste
Recipe: Slice tenderloin into 1" rounds, pound to about 1/4 to 3/8" thick. Season flour with Salt, pepper and garlic. Dredge pork in flour, shake off excess and dip in eggs, then breadcrumbs. Brown on both sides in hot oil in frying pan and place browned cutlets into baking dish. Deglaze frying pan with lemon juice, wine and butter. Add capers. Cook down sauce until you can not detect alcohol from the wine. Spoon sauce over cutlets. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes. Enjoy with same white wine used for deglazing. Great with Rice pilaf, steamed Broccoli and a salad.
Note: Picture shows 2 pork tenderloins and is the recipe up to the point of baking.

Paul, I see you are all members of the "Clean Plate Club." I joined that long ago when "the poor people in Europe" were starving and to this day I cannot leave anything on my plate, even if I don't particularly care for it. May be part of the reason I am so "gravitationally enriched."
I have a great walnut paté recipe that I used. I also used some soy curls (think like chicken strips) seasoned with lemongrass as a meat filler. I did make my own pickled carrot and daikon and made the baguettes myself. A little sriracha mayo (vegan), cucumber and cilantro finished it off.I love Banh Mi. What did you use for 'meat'?
Do you think Mike (@ibglowin ) will gloat? I think he will gloat. Discuss!
