Prosciutto-Wrapped Pork Medallions

A sweet-tart honey-lemon sauce, with a hint of basil, accents this fantastic pork entree that's perfect for a special dinner. "I serve it with rice on the side," notes John Cowan from Somerville, Massachusetts.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + marinating Cook: 10 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 pound), cut into 1-inch slices
  • 2 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham, cut into 1-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  • In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  • Drain and discard marinade from pork. Wrap a strip of prosciutto around each pork slice. In a large skillet, brown pork on both sides in oil.
  • Transfer to a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 3 minutes. Turn; broil 3-5 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting frequently with 3 tablespoons reserved marinade.
  • In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and remaining marinade until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork.

    Excellent flavor! I used our outdoor grill instead of the broiler, and served with spaghetti squash with the marinade sauce. WOW!
