Reviews for Spiced Pork Medallions with Bourbon Sauce
"This was well received when I served it for Sunday dinner. Very tender pork and good flavor. I used whiskey because that's what I had, and I don't think that would make much difference. Also it made the house smell nice from both the sauce and the spice rub. I would make this again."
"My husband and I both liked these a lot"
"This is awesome and great to make for company! My husband says it's one of the best things I make."
"Oh, so good! I used thin cut pork chops and did not add salt as pork is salty enough. Really good flavors in this. Will definitely make again!"
"The reviews are right! This is a fabulous recipe! Will try this using chicken thighs, too!"
"Delicious and simple. Used whiskey instead of bourbon and it turned out great."
"My husband said this was one of the best things I have ever made! We both loved it!"
"Quick and delicious. I used kentucky style whiskey and turned out great. I also added a little red pepper flakes to the sauce. Definitely will make again. To the other reviewer about using Brandy instead of bourbon, I don't see why not, the alcohol burns off anyway."
"This is one of those recipes you read and have to go out and get the ingredients and have that very night! It was fantastic!! It didn't look like enough spice to go around, but it was. Wouldn't want any more chili powder than it had. The meat cooked for 4 minutes on each side. Try it.....you'll like it!"
"I have a question, could you substitute Brandy for bourbon?"
