Juicy perfectly cooked pork medallions prepared over the stovetop in one pan.
This recipe comes with a rosemary-infused lemon wine sauce (yep prepared in the same skillet!)
What are Pork Medallions?
Pork medallions are about 1 inch sliced pork tenderloin pieces.
They are filet meat pieces, and that's the most tender and most expensive meat cut.
The pork medallion is seasoned and pan-seared for a few minutes, making it one of the easiest and most delicious Sunday and holiday meals.
My recipe comes with a gravy, which is prepared in the same pan right after having cooked the meat.
How to cook pork medallions and the sauce?
Pork medallions are easy to prepare, you just have to make sure to not overcook them or else they get dry.
Here is an overview on how this recipe comes together.
The complete recipe with quantities is located at the bottom of this post.
Season your meat on all sides.
Heat up a pan and cook pork medallions on all sides with the seasoning.
Take the meat from the pan.
Keep the same pan over the heat and build up the sauce with the butter.
Pour the wine and broth into the pan to deglaze and season.
Thicken the sauce with cream and cornflour slurry and flavor with lemon juice.
Reduce the sauce further to desired consistency.
Place pork medallions back into the pan and serve hot with garnished chopped chives.
We love this skillet pork tenderloin dish with plain cooked rice or aromatic rice.
Parsley potatoes or roasted vegetables are also great with the sauce and pork meat.
Besides that, spätzle or cooked noodles go well with a lemon wine sauce and pork medallions.
Place pork and sauce together into an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days max.
I don't recommend freezing because cooked pork fillet doesn't thaw that well.
To reheat fridge leftovers, place into a skillet and warm up gradually again. The meat is tender and sensible to too much heat.
Don't use too much heat or else the pork meat will get dry.
You can reheat the dish in the microwave too but at a lower temperature.
Switch the wine with more broth (same quantity).
Yep just skip steps 2 and 3 and cook only the meat on all sides in the pan.
