Pork tenderloin medallion recipes. Yep, you read that correctly. I have two of them for you today.
During the warmer months of the year, you will often find me on my porch. If it is close to dinner, you will find me grilling. I mean really, who wants to stand in a hot kitchen cooking dinner?
When I have company over, I want to make sure dinner is served quickly. I also want to make sure I have time to visit with my company. That is when Smithfield® Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin is perfect. I picked mine up at my local Food Lion store which is right around the corner.
Don’t you love it when the work is done for you? Smithfield took the time to slow marinate and perfectly season my pork tenderloin. I know that my guest will get the perfect grilled piece of meat. All I have to do is add a few sides.
Grilling is my preferred way to cook in the summer. For this recipe, all you do is heat up the grill (to a medium heat), put the Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin on the grill and cook until it reaches 145°F. The temperature of the meat will go up as it rests. This only takes about 30 minutes.
Call your guests to the table and serve with your favorite sides. The Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin is so tender and moist.
We love all of the cracked pepper.
If you have leftovers, which doesn’t really happen often in my home, here is another recipe you can use the Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin in.
It is so easy and so delicious. Remember, the pork has already been cooked, so you can get this leftover dinner on the table in no time. I am not sure which of my pork tenderloin medallion recipes is my favorite!
Grilled pork tenderloin medallions with onion gravy
Tenders and full of spices, this meal is perfect for any night.
- 2 TBL Butter
- 1 - 2 pounds Grilled pork tenderloin cut into 3/4 inch medallions
- 1/2 cup sliced spring onion
- 2 TBL white whole wheat flour
- 1 cup Organic Chicken broth
- Parsley for garnish
If you haven't already grilled the pork, grill the Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin on medium heat for about 30 minutes. Cook until it reaches 145°F. Set aside. The pork will continue to cook as it rests.
In a skillet, place 2 TBL. butter to the pan and melt. Add the onion and sauté until tender. Do not let it get crispy. This will take about 3-5 minutes
Sprinkle flour over the onions and stir for one minute. Do not let the flour get really brown.
Add the chicken broth, scraping the bottom of the pan to release any onion bits. Simmer until the sauce is thickened. This will take about 5 minutes.
Place the grilled pork medallions in the sauce and let them reheat. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
Garnish with parsley if desired.
Your family may be like mine and not have leftovers of the grilled pork tenderloin for the second dinner. Thats ok, run out to your local Food Lion and pick up another one! You won’t want to miss either of these pork tenderloin medallion recipes.
