Reviews for Pork Medallions with Garlic-Strawberry Sauce
"My husband and I just finished eating this and we were speechless! We never would have thought that these flavors would taste so good together."
"This are moist and juicy inside and crispy, crunch on the outside. I didn't have enough strawberries so I made up the shortage with peaches. Wow!"
"Great combination of flavors."
"Family loved it"
"I really enjoyed the flavor on this with the strawberry. I cut back on the garlic so more of the pork/fruit flavor would come through."
"So good! I made this for a dinner with friends and we couldn't get enough. The sweet strawberries in the sauce is the perfect complement to the savory-ness of the pork. I would definitely make this again and I will prepare my pork like this in the future trying other sauces too!"
"The whole family loved this."
"I thought I would love this recipe as I am the ultimate sweet sauce with salty meat fan but I gotta say I wasn't a fan. Not sure if there was something wrong with my strawberries but the sauce was awful. The breaded pork tasted like chicken fried rice because of the egg. Too bad - I thought this would be a winner."
"Making a thick sauce of whole strawberry preserves,a little water, melted butter and minced garlic works better. The sweetness makes a big difference! SiameseCat2"
"I didn't like this cimbination together. Strawberries and pork just don't go together!"
"did not like this at all - usually like pork and fruit but not like this - family would not eat had to get take out."
