    Pork Medallions with Red Wine-Cherry Sauce

    Simple to make and perfectly balanced between savory and sweet, this fast pan sauce uses a secret ingredient: cherry preserves. Aside from its concentrated fruit flavor, the preserves lend body and thickness to the sauce. Red wine is not the dominant flavor here, but if you’d like to avoid it, use chicken stock and add a splash of cider or red wine vinegar. Medallions of lean, tender pork tenderloin cook fast in a hot pan. The pork slices should be rosy pink in the center after cooking (they will finish to the perfect doneness as they rest).

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes
        •    Cook time: 15 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


        •   1 tbsp olive oil
        •   1 (1-lb.) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 12 slices
        •   1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme, divided
        •   1/2 cup dry red wine
        •   3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
        •   1/2 teaspoon black pepper
        •   1 cup unsalted chicken stock
        •   1/3 cup cherry preserves


    1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add pork slices; cook 2 minutes on each side. Remove pork from pan; keep warm.
    2. Increase heat to high. Add 2 teaspoons thyme to drippings in pan; cook 30 seconds. Add wine, salt, and pepper; cook 2 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add stock and preserves; cook 8 minutes or until reduced to about 1/2 cup, stirring occasionally. Spoon cherry mixture evenly over pork; sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon thyme.

    Jerk Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple Salsa

    Good News Pork tenderloin is leaner than skin-on chicken and delicious in the spicy, smoky recipe here. Capsaicin, the chemical that makes chiles taste hot, can help boost metabolism; for extra fire, add the chile seeds to the marinade.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 30 minutes
        •    Cook time: 30 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


        •    1/4 cup canola oil
        •    2 scallions, thickly sliced
        •    2 garlic cloves, smashed
        •    2 Scotch bonnet or habanero chiles, stemmed and seeded
        •    1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
        •    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
        •    1 tablespoon light brown sugar
        •    2 teaspoons ground allspice
        •    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
        •    1 teaspoon thyme leaves
        •    1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
        •    One 1-inch piece of fresh ginger
        •    2 pork tenderloins (14 ounces each)
        •    Salt
        •    Pineapple-Jicama Salsa


    1. In a blender, combine 3 tablespoons of the oil with the scallions, garlic, chiles, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, allspice, black pepper, thyme, nutmeg and ginger. Puree until smooth. Transfer the marinade to a resealable plastic bag. Add the pork tenderloins, turning to coat. Seal the bag, pressing out the air, and refrigerate for 4 to 8 hours.
    2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Remove the pork from the marinade. Brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and season generously with salt. Grill the pork over moderately low heat, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer reaches 135 when inserted in the center of the meat, about 20 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice the pork and serve with the salsa.

    Sheet Pan Mustard-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

    Tender Pork, green beans and crispy potatoes are done in 30 minutes.

    Pork tenderloin maybe one of the easiest things to make at home and I have just made it easier with this one-pan meal. This recipe combines an entire tenderloin with potatoes and green beans, all covered in a tangy mustard glaze.

    Pork tenderloin can vary in size. I prefer a one-and-a-half-pound piece to cook, but be wary to adjust the cooking time if your tenderloin is smaller.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 10 minutes
        •    Cook time: 20 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


        •    2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
        •    2 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
        •    2 tablespoons honey
        •    2 tablespoons orange juice
        •    2 teaspoons orange zest
        •    2 teaspoons finely chopped rosemary, plus 4 whole sprigs
        •    2 teaspoons light brown sugar
        •    One 1½-pound pork tenderloin
        •    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
        •    1½ pounds baby new potatoes
        •    12 ounces green beans, trimmed
        •    2 tablespoons olive oil


    1. Preheat the oven to 450º and line a baking sheet with tinfoil. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustards, honey, orange juice, orange zest, chopped rosemary and brown sugar until smooth, and set aside.
    2. Place the tenderloin in the center of the baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, toss together the rosemary sprigs, potatoes, green beans and olive oil to coat. Season with salt and pepper, then arrange on the tray around the pork. Drizzle the mustard sauce over the tenderloin and vegetables.
    3. Transfer the tray to the oven and cook until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 140º, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes, then carve and serve.
