It doesn't get any easier than this! I have made this many times - I call it pork medallions with gravy. This works with plain pork tenderloin also if you don't have the flavor marinated ones. I also like to add a bit on grainy Dijon mustard to the sauce. This is a good basic recipe that lends itself to tweaking. I like to serve this with rice and steamed broccoli or with mashed potatoes and spinach salad. love preparing this on busy nights when I want delicious without a fuss. I also love that it is made in one pan on top of the stove, so no need to heat up the kitchen with the oven. Lynne, Volunteer Field Editor
