Reviews for Glazed Pork Medallions
"This recipe was delicious!! The sauce from the pork goes great over rice. I did change it a bit and used peach perseveres instead of orange, but I will make this again and again."
"This was very easy to make and quite tasty."
"This was delicious. I served it over white rice with fresh pineapple on the side. By the way; in response to the person concerned about the cost of the fresh gingerroot. I paid 94 cents for two fairly large pieces."
"You can freeze the fresh ginger. Just wrap well and place in a plastic bag then peel and grate just what you need while frozen and return remaining ginger to the freezer. I always keep a little bagged piece of ginger in the freezer and use it whenever a recipe calls for ground ginger. You will not believe the difference it will make in your pumpkin pie!"
"1/16 tsp ground for 1/2 tsp fresh...however it tastes slightly different. If you pick through the ginger at the market you can usually find a knob that's fallen off another piece. Look for a one inch piece; easier to peel and then use a grater instead of mincing (faster, easier). Gingerroot is so lightweight I think you'll be surprised at the low cost when it's all said and done."
"I would like to try this recipe, but I wonder if there is any way to sub for ground ginger. Seems expensive to buy the amount you must buy when you will use so little. Anybody know the answer?"
"This is a quick and easy way to make delicious pork chops. I will definitely be making it again."
