"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

1/2 c. all purpose flour

1 c. chicken broth
3/4 c. seeded and chopped tomatoes
2 T. fresh lemon juice
1 T. chopped fresh parsley

In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Dredge pork cutlets in flour mixture. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 T. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add 6 pork cutlets to pan, and cook, for 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove from pan and set aside. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 T. oil and cutlets; remove from pan, set aside.
Add wine to pan, and cook for 3 minutes, scraping pan with wooden spoon to remove browned bits. Stir in broth, tomatoes, juice, parsley, and capers. Cook for 5 minutes, or until sauce is slightly thickened. Return pork to pan, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until hot. Serve over orzo.
