Reviews for Mustard Pork Medallions
"Very, very good. I always substitute garlic powder for garlic salt ( same for onion powder) in any recipe & have always made my own bread crumbs."
"Make this recipe all the time but I skip the butter all together. Just spread the mustard on the medallions. I use parchment paper and then lightly spray medallions with olive oil or something like Pam. Don't over bake or they will be dry!!"
"Use garlic powder rather than garlic salt to reduce the amount of sodium in this recipe. The Dijon mustard has enough flavor by itself to make up for not using garlic salt. Use your own homemade bread crumbs and add seasoning will further reduce the amount of sodium.LAG"
