Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Raspberry Balsamic Sauce

Serves: 2-4

Ingredients:

1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound), cut into 1” slices

1 tsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp Flying Olive Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil or a Flying Olive EVOO of Choice

½ cup seedless raspberry jam

2 Tbsp Flying Olive Traditional or Aged Dark Balsamic or 1 Tbsp Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar and 1 Tbsp of Traditional or Aged Balsamic (We found 2 Tbsp of the Raspberry was a little too much, but if you LOVE the Raspberry, go for it!)

2 tsp Dijon mustard

½ pint of fresh raspberries for garnish, if desired

Directions:

Cut the pork tenderloin into 1” slices. On a cutting board, place 1 sheet of plastic wrap, then the pork tenderloin slice, and top it with another sheet of plastic wrap. Flatten pork to ½” thickness. Sprinkle with the garlic powder as you go. Repeat until all the slices are flattened and sprinkled with the garlic powder.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the pork in the Flying Olive EVOO of Choice for about 3-5 minutes on each side or until the meat is no longer pink.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, add the jam, Flying Olive Traditional or Aged Dark Balsamicand/or Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar, and mustard to the pan.

Remove the pork slices and keep them warm under a foil tent. Add the jam mixture to the pan and cook and stir for 2-3 minutes scraping up any browned bits. When the sauce becomes thick, remove the sauce from the pan. Spoon over the pork, and garnish with fresh raspberries, if desired. Serve.
