Step 1

Lightly pound each of the pork medallions and season on both sides with salt and pepper. Dredge each medallion in flour.

Heat a sauté pan over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 tablespoon butter to pan. Add pork medallions, green peppercorns, grain mustard and 1/4 cup of the brandy. Cook for about 3 minutes. Flip the medallions and add creme fraiche, stirring into the juices to begin making the sauce. Cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a separate saute pan over medium high heat add remaining tablespoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoon of butter. Add sliced apples and cook for 1-2 minutes. Deglaze pan with remaining 1/4 cup of brandy. If desired you can flambe the apples by igniting the brandy with a far-reaching flame. Add chicken stock, remaining butter (2 tablespoon) and salt to taste. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until apples are slightly softened.

To serve, plate some of the apple mixture and top with one of the medallions. Garnish with chopped chives and serve.
