Shallot Gravy Pork Chops

The flavorful sauce is what makes these pork medallions delicious.

I really enjoy making different sauces and putting them over pork. I find pork is too bland without something zazzing it up a little.

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