Juicy, tender One Pan Pork Medallions – the meat is so soft you can “cut” it with your fork ! And dinner is on the table in under 30 minutes !
If you are looking for a quick week night dinner, this One Pan Pork Medallions dish is perfect.
Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite meats to cook and we all love pork anyhow.
It is also one of the rare cuts of meat that does not take a long time to cook through and the meat is always super juicy and one can really “cut” the meat with a fork.
The Leeks together with the Red Bell Pepper make this Pork dish an absolute winner.
I have already been asked to please add it to our monthly menu. Not that I actually have a monthly menu.
But I do make some dishes regularly, which means at least once a month, and that is the menu my family refers to whenever they are totally in love with a new dish.
From start to finish, the Pork Medallions dish takes less than 25 minutes to prep, cook and is ready to serve.
I start off by cooking the Pork, checking now and then, and whilst that was going, I prep the Bell Pepper and the Leeks.
