Maple-Balsamic-Glazed Pork Medallions

Balsamic vinegar and maple syrup combine for a sweet-tart sauce that pairs perfectly with the pork medallions; Dijon mustard adds a savory note. Serve with whipped sweet potatoes and sautéed broccoli rabe.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2007

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Combine syrup and vinegar in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 3 minutes), stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in mustard.

Cut pork crosswise into 8 pieces. Place each pork piece between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork evenly with salt and pepper. Add pork to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side. Add vinegar mixture; cook 1 minute or until desired degree of doneness, turning pork to coat. Place 2 pork medallions on each of 4 plates; drizzle about 1 tablespoon syrup mixture over each serving.
