Spiced Pork Medallions with Bourbon Sauce is one of my favorite pork recipes. The sauce is perfectly balanced with the seasonings on the pork. The allspice and ground cinnamon was a surprise but very tasty.
Andrew has never been a huge fan of pork unless it is bacon. It is hard to find recipes that he will like and not just tolerate for one evening. I can’t eat chicken and beef every night of the week so I try different pork recipes every once in awhile and this is a true “winner”.
I found this recipe in my Taste of Home Healthy Cooking 2013 Annual Recipes Cookbook.
