Pork with Artichokes and Capers Recipe

Pork with Artichokes and Capers Recipe

“After dating my husband for a month, I wanted to impress him with my cooking," recalls Lindy Bonnell of Loveland, Colorado. "When I fixed this recipe, it convinced him I was ‘the one’! We’ve been married for several years.” SHOP SMART Capers are actually pickled flower buds. Look for them near the pickles and olives in your grocery store. They’re very salty and should always be rinsed before using. Don’t have any capers? Chopped green olives make a good substitute.

"I tried it for my wife and I, we both loved the flavor and the uniqueness of the artichokes!

I made it again and used horseradish sauce insted of Dijon mustard. (We were out of Dijon) It was simply fantastic!!
