Apricot-Rosemary Pork Medallions

I needed to use pork tenderloin from my fridge, but I didn't want to wait for it to roast. I tried this, and it was not only quick but my family loves it. You can play with different preserves to make your favorite flavors. —Mildred Lynn Caruso, Brighton, TN

  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 2/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 5-1/3 cups hot cooked brown rice

Directions

  • Cut each tenderloin crosswise into eight 1-in. slices. Place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip pork slices in crumbs, patting to help coating adhere. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add pork in batches; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, place steamer basket over 1 in. of water. Place broccoli in basket. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer; steam, covered, 4-6 minutes or until tender.
  • In a small saucepan, mix preserves, wine, rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook and stir over medium-low heat 3-5 minutes or until preserves are melted. Serve with pork, broccoli and rice.

    Loved this, made exactly as listed with chicken broth. Served with Trader Joe's frozen cauliflower rice

    Made these tonight and they were very good! I cut the recipe in half since it was just the two of us. I used fig preserves as that was what was on hand. There were still enough for another meal! I like that it is quick to prepare. I served with baked sweet potatoes ( which I started in the microwave and finished in the oven) and broccoli. Thanks.

    All 4 of us liked this treatment of pork tenderloin. Cutting the meat into medallions made it very do-able on a work night. I made the recipe for the meat exactly as written the first time, using the wine instead of the chicken broth. I used a mixture of roasted veggies however instead of the broccoli.

    I chose this recipe for a small dinner gathering of friends. Loved the apricot rosemary sauce. Everyone at the table loved it.

    I thought these were extremely good. I did substitute strawberry jam for the apricot and loved it.

    This was good and I will probably make it again. My pork took much longer to cook. The sauce was really outstanding.
