  • 1 lb pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c dry white wine(or substitute low-sodium chicken broth)
  • 1/2 c low sodium chicken broth
  • Grated lemon zest and 1 T lemon juice from one lemon
  • 1 T chopped fresh parsley or you can use sage or rosemary



Step 1

Cut pork into 12-1 inch thick slices. Sprinkle pork on all sides with 1/8 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Heat 1 tsp oil in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, cook turning once, until pork is browned and internal temperature reaches 145F about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer pork to a platter and keep warm. Add remaining oil to skillet. Add garlic and cook stirring constantly, until garlic is fragrant about 30 seconds. Add wine and broth. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring to scrape up brown bits from bottom of skillet, and liquid is reduced by two-thirds, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in remaining 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper, the lemon zest, juice and parsley. Serve pork medallions with sauce drizzled over or on the side in gravy boat.
