Glazed Pork Medallions

Monday, October 17, 2011

These lean pork medallions are tender and delicious, with a slightly sweet and tangy flavor. The great thing about pork tenderloin, from which these medallions are cut, is that it's almost as lean as white-meat chicken. Pork is also a richer-tasting meat, which in itself is very satisfying, and a nice change from everyday chicken breasts. The flavor combination in these glazed medallions makes them a kid-pleaser, too. It certainly did in our house!
