This pretty pork entree makes a great holiday dish. Topped with cranberry sauce, the pork medallions are light and filling, but they’re so delicious, guests always want more. –Tami Morrison of Kent, Washington

OOPS! Instead of CRANBERRIES, I used pomegranates. But wouldn't cherries be good, too?

MY REVIEW

My guests loved, loved, loved this! ONLY, I changed it up a bit as I always use what I have on hand if I can. Instead of the cherries, I had dried pomegranates as well as fresh. I used both paired with a half can of frozen cherry pomegranate juice to which I added a bit of cornstarch beaten into cold water to thicken the sauce. I pounded the tenderloin before cooking and cooked it until it was crispy. I think it adds more flavor. It was delicious and so easy! I also tripled the recipe as I had 12 guests.

I make this all the time when I am trying to "impress" my guests. It is simple and elegant. It comes out looking just like the picture and I look like a fabulous cook even though I am a beginner! highly recommend
