I like pork medallions with apricot preserves and wondered how else I could dress them up. I played around with different flavors until I found this combo. Wows every time. —Tahnia Fox, Trenton, Michigan

"Delicious! I didn't have apple juice concentrate, so I used 2 Tbsp of apple jelly preserve.

A trick I learned for always having tender pork is to place the pork in a cold pan and then heat. No tough pork ever again.
Try this recipe - delicious!"
