We have pork at least once a week, and this is one dish we especially enjoy. Moist tender pork medallions are served up in a savory sauce for a combination that's irresistible. I'm not sure where the recipe came from, but I'm glad I have it. -Janie Thorpe, Tullahoma, Tennessee

  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Chopped fresh parsley, optional


  1. Cut tenderloin into 8 pieces; place each piece between 2 sheets of waxed paper and flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter; cook pork until a thermometer reads 145°, 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.
  3. To the pan drippings, add lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and mustard; heat through, stirring occasionally. Pour over the pork, and sprinkle with parsley if desired.
