Pork tenderloin medallions are seared and then cooked with a spicy marmalade sauce. The marmalade sauce is flavored with vinegar, honey, and hot sauce, then it's simmered with pork tenderloin medallions for a tasty meal.

This recipe would also work well with pork chops or cutlets.


  • 12 ounces sweet orange marmalade
  • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Asian hot garlic chili sauce (sambal) or a dash or more of other hot sauce
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 pounds pork tenderloins
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine the marmalade, vinegar, honey, Asian chili sauce, and a pinch of salt. Simmer until reduced by about 1/3, about 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. Cut tenderloins into 1-inch slices. Flatten slightly with the heel of your hand. Combine the flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a food storage bag. Shake tenderloin medallions in the flour mixture until well coated.

  3. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Sear tenderloin medallions for about 3 minutes on each side. Add the reduced sauce, cover the skillet, and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes.
