Combine first 5 ingredients in a shallow dish. Dredge pork in flour mixture.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pork, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan. Stir in wine and lemon juice, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; cook 1 minute. Add garlic, and cook 1 minute. Add spinach, tossing 1 minute or until the spinach wilts. Serve with pork.
