Sauteed Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Fennel and Green Olives in Orange Pan Sauce
Why This Recipe Works
In search of a great pork tenderloin recipe, we discovered a few ways to add flavor and hold on to moisture while cooking this lean cut. For our final pork tenderloin recipe, we cut the meat into medallions about 1 inch thick, pounded them to increase the surface area for searing, and sautéed them. This worked beautifully, with every piece both juicy and tender and seared on both sides. In addition, a generous amount of drippings were left behind in the pan, and we could use these to make a variety of pan sauces, thereby giving the meat its needed flavor boost.
