Apricot Pork Medallions Recipe

There's nothing we love more than a great pork dish for supper in our house and this recipe is up there with the best of them. I find that apricot preserves gives the pork just the right amount of sweetness without being cloying. —Crystal Bruns, Iliff, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound), cut into eight slices
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard

Directions

  • 1. Pound pork slices with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Brown pork on each side. Remove pork from pan, reserving drippings.
  • 2. Add preserves, green onions, vinegar, mustard and remaining butter to pan; bring just to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 3-4 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  • 3. Return pork to pan; cook until pork is tender. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 4 servings.

"It was great. I could not tell it was low sodium. Although I like to make new recipes as written the first time , I did made changes because of what I already had in my cupboard. I used orange marmalade instead of apricot preserves. I added a few onion after I took the pork out and cooked them for a couple minutes and then proceeded with the recipe as written. It was very good."
