Parmesan Pork Medallions Recipe

I FOUND this recipe in an advertisement for pork. I have served it countless times for family and friends. It takes very little prep time and adapts easily to serve any number.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/2 pound pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced


  • 1. Cut pork into four slices; flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper. Add pork, one slice at a time, and shake to coat.
  • 2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook pork in oil for 2-3 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  • 3. Add onion to the pan; cook and stir until tender. Add garlic, cook 1 minute longer. Serve with pork. Yield: 2 servings.

"My whole family loves this recipe. quick, easy, and yummy, pretty much sum it up. I also found the recipe in the Comfort Food Diet cookbook. I have been lazy, and use onion powder instead of chopping an onion, and double the amounts on the seasoning, we like things with a bolder flavor. The recipe is also easily doubled. Yummy."

"Super easy, I didn't have a fresh onion or garlic so I just used onion flakes and garlic powder and it tasted great."
