Pork Medallions with Pear-Maple Sauce
Ingredients
1
12 ounce pork tenderloin
2
teaspoons snipped fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1
teaspoon snipped fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon black pepper
1
tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil
2
medium pears, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/4
cup pure maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup
2
tablespoons dried tart red cherries, halved
2
tablespoons dry white wine or apple juice
Directions
  1. Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 1/4-inch slices. In a medium bowl combine rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Add meat slices; toss to coat. In a large skillet cook meat, half at a time, in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until meat is slightly pink in center, turning once. Remove meat from skillet; set aside.
  2. In the same skillet combine pears, maple syrup, dried cherries, and white wine. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, about 3 minutes or just until pears are tender. Return meat to skillet with pears; heat through.
  3. To serve, use a slotted spoon to transfer meat to a warm serving platter. Spoon the pear mixture over meat. Makes 4 servings.
