    1. Slice the pork tenderloin into 1/2 inch medallions. Salt and pepper both sides of the medallions.Place the medallions in a zip top bag, leave it open, and gently pound the tenderloins thin.
    2. Combine the flour, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning on a plate with a fork. Press the pork tenderloin medallions in the flour mixture. Be sure to cover all side with flour. Transfer to a clean plate.
    3. Heat the butter and olive oil in a heavy bottom, wide pan over medium high heat.Sear the medallions in the oil and flip to the second side when the first side has some color on it, about 4 to 8 minutes total and until tender. Remove from the pan and place on a clean plate, cover with foil.
    4. Deglaze the pan with a cup of dry white wine. Deglazing a pan is adding a liquid to a hot pan to help lift the delicious, caramel bits of flavor off the bottom of a pan. Add the heavy cream and then chicken stock. Juice 2 lemons and add to the sauce. Then add the capers and bring the sauce to a boil; add the pork medallions back to into the sauce. Allow the sauce to reduce and concentrate the flavors.
    5. Serve along side cooked angel hair pasta and garnish with chopped parsley and a lemon slice.
