I was in the mood for Greek flavors so I cut up a pork tenderloin into medallions and marinated them in a combination of olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and oregano. The pork took minutes to cook and turned out moist, tender and had a delicious Mediterranean flavor. My entire family loved this dish and gobbled up every last bite.
Mediterranean Pork Medallions:
- 1 pork tenderloin, sliced into medallions
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- Juice and zest of half a lemon
- 1 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
How to Make Mediterranean Pork Medallions
Remove the silver skin from the pork tenderloin then slice into same size medallions.
Combine all of the ingredients together in a large zip lock bag. Let the pork marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Coat a grill pan with cooking spray then heat over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, lay the pork medallions down in the pan and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Turn the pork over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until cooked through. Let the meat rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy.
Note: If you want a sauce, you can double the marinade recipe and boil it for a couple of minutes after the pork cooks then drizzle over the pork medallions before serving.
