These lean pork medallions are tender and delicious, with a slightly sweet and tangy flavor. The great thing about pork tenderloin, from which these medallions are cut, is that it's almost as lean as white meat chicken.

Pork is also a richer-tasting meat, which in itself is very satisfying, and a nice change from everyday chicken breasts. The flavor combination in these glazed medallions makes them a kid-pleaser, too. It certainly did in our house!


  • 1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard

Steps to Make It

  1. Cut pork tenderloin into 1 inch rounds. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 F, and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.​

  3. Sauté medallions one minute per side, then transfer to baking sheet.

  4. Whisk vinegar, honey, and mustard together in a small bowl. Generously brush medallions with glaze.

  5. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
