Reviews for Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Strawberry Sauce
"What an outstanding recipe! We made this with pork chops on the grill, so I did change the method a bit. I cooked and strained the sauce, reserving 3/4 cup to reheat and thicken at serving time. I used the remaining sauce as a marinade for the chops (along with the cooked strawberries and garlic) and refrigerated them for 8 hours, turning occasionally. The pork chops flavored through nicely and the fresh strawberry, green onion and feta mixture really put this recipe "over the top"! My husband and I can't wait to make it again!"
"I made the sauce as a marinade instead and it turned out great. I was just being lazy but I would recommend that technique if you feel like going about it that way. And I didn't brown the meat."
"Loved this! Made the broth mixture about a week in advance and left it in a jar in the refridge (change of plans). It was fine when I got to it and went on with the recipe as written. Very nice combination of flavors, will make again and not change a thing."
"I am always on the lookout for new "pork tenderloin recipes", since my family likes this cut of meat. This Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Strawberry Sauce is a keeper. It is a very refined recipe.

"Very good dish! Had an intersting flavor combination with the strawberries and feta cheese. Family liked. Would make both a unique and beautiful presentation for guests!"
"Was skeptical about the how these ingredients would go together, but wanted to try two of my favorites together - strawberries and pork. Wow! This pork was great! Really flavorful! Don't leave out the toppings (strawberries, green onion and feta). They really finish the pork with a bang!"
"This was wonderful ! Even my picky husband complemented me on it! Will definitely make again !"
"Made this for my husband's & daughter's birthday supper tonight, it was delicious , enjoyed by all."
"delicious! True, it doesn't taste like strawberries, but it is very good nonetheless"
"The sauce is unique but doesn't have any strawberry flavor. I pureed some strawberries and added them in for body and flavor. Pork rocked ;-)"
