Asian Pork Medallions

The flavorful sauce is what makes these pork medallions delicious.

This dish 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 save it for soup or another meal.  

I found this recipe in my Taste of Home Cookbook but it is also available online
