Teriyaki Pork Medallions

Teriyaki Pork Medallions Recipe
Oxmoor House
Mirin, a rice wine with a low alcohol content, is the key ingredient to this teriyaki sauce's authentic flavor. The wine's high sugar content allows it to reduce into a syrup glaze. Look for mirin in the Asian foods section of your local supermarket. Serve with Pineapple Salsa and precooked white rice.

Yield:

4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork, 1 tablespoon sauce, and 1/3 cup pineapple salsa)
