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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

This was so good and ridiculously easy! I used some maple balsamic vinegar and we all loved it! Made it with Parmesan Mashed Potatoes (from CL) - great with the sauce- easy peasy! Definitely going in the rotation!

I love pork tenderloin and this recipe is delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, and it was easy and quick to make. I think the sauce would go well with other meats.

Quote from my husband: "I think I could eat that maple glazed pork stuff you make five nights a week and be happy." Just follow the recipe and watch your family think you are the best cook ever.
