- 3/4 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch slices
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3/4 cup chopped plum tomatoes
- 4 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese
- Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook pork in butter until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°). Remove and set aside.
- In the same skillet, saute prosciutto in the drippings until browned. Add garlic and sage; cook 1 minute longer. Add vinegar, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan.
- Stir in cream; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add tomatoes and pork; heat through. Sprinkle each serving with basil and cheese. Yield: 2 servings.

Reviews for Tuscan Pork Medallions
"This recipe was elegant and easy to prepare. The flavor combinations in this dish were delectable. I served this dish with rice. My Husband stated that it was "worthy of a restaurant". This will be one of our go-to pork recipes."
"We loved this dish and wish there was more of it. It didn't make a lot. I would serve it over rice. The seasonings in this were amazing."
"This was a class act. My husband licked the plate, no joke."
"So glad I tried this! I was looking for a new pork dish and this fit the bill! This was amazing and surprisingly easy to make. Also delicious with peas added. This meal will be a regular in our dinner rotation!"
"Wow! Loved it and will make again."
"This dish is even better than excellent. I'll be preparing these tasty and tender chops often."
"Delicious just as is. Served with whole wheat noodles"
"Awesome. I use sun-dried tomatoes in the winter when fresh tomatoes are just not that yummy. I also add green onion."
"We've made this dish many times. For non-pork eaters, just or for something different, this is equally good if you substitute seared scallops for the pork."
"Very flavorful recipe! I've made with both ham and bacon, as well as added white white. Makes for yummy leftovers, too."
