Pork Medallions in Balsamic Honey Sauce

by Whiski Business on April 7, 2014

Do you ever come home from work after a long ass day and wish there was something easy, quick AND delish you could whip up? Here it is—the “other” white meat. It’s what’s for dinner and it is GOOD. BTW—Costco has the best deal on pork tenderloin. It’s a two pack, but in each pack there is two. Ya following me? The label is Swift Premium with the Kirkland Signature brand. Cook this recipe then toss the second one in a crock pot the next morning with some BBQ sauce, garlic powder, and a bit of water and come home and have BBQ pork sandwiches for dinner–YUMMMO!!!

Paired with rice and a fresh vegy and you are good to go.


Pork Medallions in Balsamic Honey Sauce

Prep time—10 minutes
Cook time—15 minutes

1  3/4 to 2 pounds pork tenderloin
4 cloves garlic, minced finely
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary, more for garnish if you want to make it pretty.
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar (I used a lite balsamic)
3 to 4 tablespoons honey (add 3 and taste)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Oil for pan searing

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Put garlic and rosemary in a small bowl. Add the vinegar, honey, olive oil, mustard, and salt and pepper, and stir to combine.

First, trim any fat and silver off the tenderloin. Then slice the tenderloin into 1-inch thick medallions. Add a thin coating of oil to a medium skillet and heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add the pork slices in 1 layer, and sear for 1 minute. Turn and sear the other side until lightly browned. Transfer the slices in 1 layer to a shallow baking dish.

Pour the sauce over the medallions.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
