Asian Pork Medallions is a quick dinner that is perfect for a weeknight meal. Meat is getting expensive so I bought a kitchen scale so I can get the correct weight for the meat. Depending how much tenderloin is remaining I will make soup or freeze it for another time.
I found this recipe in my Taste of Home Healthy Cooking 2009 Annual Recipes Cookbook.
