Cran-Orange Pork Medallions
"Talk about versatile recipes! This is a long-time family favorite just as it is, but occasionally, I jazz up the recipe with jalapeno peppers and fresh ginger. I’ve also made it with peach preserves and dried cherries for a delicious change of pace," notes Julie Wesson of Wilton, Wisconsin.

I thought this was okay; but not great. I think it would be a lot better with the addition of jalape?o and ginger as suggested as an alternative.
