In school, we all had to learn the three Rs: roasting, relish, and risotto. That's not what they taught you? Hmmm. Well, at Home Chef, we've advanced to the three Ps: nutty Parmesan, succulent pork, and piccata, a preparation that involves thin slices of meat. Combined together, and paired with a caper butter sauce, these three Ps bring paradise, perfection, pleasure on a fork, and a party on your taste buds. Wait, that's more than three Ps… well, we learned risotto, not “‘rithmetic.”
Trim ends off green beans.
Peel and mince shallot.
Pat pork tenderloin dry and, on a separate cutting board, slice into medallions, ¾"-thick. Place medallions in a mixing bowl and toss with Parmesan (reserving 1 tsp. for garnish), ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Cook the Pork Medallions
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork medallions to hot pan and cook undisturbed until well-browned, 2-3 minutes per side.
Transfer pork medallions to prepared baking sheet.
Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Roast in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes.
Rest cooked medallions at least 5 minutes.
While pork medallions roasts, cook green beans
Cook the Green Beans
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add half the shallot (reserve remaining for sauce) and green beans and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 1-2 minutes
Stir in ¼ cup water, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cover and cook until tender, 4-6 minutes.
If green beans need more time, add 1 Tbsp. water and cook 1-2 more minutes.
Remove from burner.
Cook the Sauce
Return pan used to sear pork to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add remaining shallot and cook until translucent, 30-60 seconds.
Add demi-glace, 2 Tbsp. water, accumulated juices from resting pork, and capers. Stir to combine.
Remove from burner and swirl in butter.
