Spiced Pork Medallions with Bourbon Sauce

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 Cookbook but it is also available online
