This quick-cooking dish is a garlic lover's delight. The tender pork medallions are dressed in a creamy garlic sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds. "It's a family favorite that's oh so good!" raves Elisa Lochridge of Beaverton, Oregon.

"This was super quick and very tasty. I did add about 2 extra cloves of garlic because...well I like the stuff!! I cut the pork loin super thin so I didn't have to "flatten" was just about 3 minutes each side and it was wonderful. The cream sauce thickens a lot next time I may add a bit more milk to thin it a little bit...but there will be a next time!"

"This was delicious, fast and simple! I used light herb and garlic cream cheese and doubled the sauce recipe to serve with rice. I pan fried the pork tenderloin slices instead of broiling. Very popular!"

"This is Elisa from Tigard, OR. These are mine. They got the city and state wrong. This is for friends who I know wanted to look these up online and did not want them to pass them up thinking it was someone else."
