We have pork at least once a week, and this is one dish we especially enjoy. Moist tender pork "medallions" are served up in a savory sauce for a combination that's irresistible. I'm not sure where the recipe came from, but I'm glad I have it. -Janie Thorpe, Tullahoma, Tennessee

"This was a breeze to put together and took very little time. Excellent especially the sauce. Doubled the recipe - still not enough will triple it the next time. But then we are gravy freaks."

"Yum, absolutely quick and simple. I can see why some of the other people would double the sauce to serve over a side. It looks beautiful on the serving plate, and would look fantastic with some broccoli next to it, if I were sharing with other people, since its just me its alone on the serving plate. I would definitely make this again, and can't wait to see how it is cold tomorrow in a sandwich for lunch."

"I made this several weeks ago and my husband and I enjoyed it, but I don't know if I would make it again. If I do, I'll definitely cut back on the lemon pepper and juice. We love both of these ingredients, but they took away from the pork taste too much. I'm trying the marinated pork medallions tonight."

"Delicious. My family loved it! I would recommend doubling the butter and sauce ingredients. The sauce is wonderful drizzled over rice! A simple, tasty meal, elegant enough for company! You can't go wrong here."

"The tenderloin & lemon pepper tasted good but the sauce was interesting to say the least! I would not make this sauce again. Thanks."
