This was tonight's quickie dinner.
It was really quite easy! And FAAAAST!
We watched them make it on Everyday Food, J-lo was sent to the store for a few items and we had it for din-din! Easy-peasy!
I made one small alteration, here is my version of the recipe:
Pork Medallions with Orange Sauce
1 1/2 pound pork loin, trimmed of fat and silver skin, cut into 1/2 inch slices on the bias and pressed lightly to make medallions.
Olive Oil (a few tablespoons)
1 cup flour
1 medium shallot, diced
3 large, heavy oranges, juiced to make one cup
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 TB capers, drained and rinsed
After your pork loin is trimmed and ready to cook, mix the flour and salt and pepper. Lightly coat the pork medallions in the flour mixture and put directly into the pan with hot oil, do not crowd the pan, you will probably have to do this in 3-4 batches. You will probably have to add a little extra oil each time. Cook each batch for two minutes per side, remove to a warm plate and continue until all the medallions are done.
Toss in the shallot and stir for 30 seconds. Carefully add the OJ and lemon juice into the pan, there will be lots of steam and it will boil quickly. Stir constantly. Toss in the capers. Season with S/P. Allow to boil for a minute. Put the medallions back in the pan. Allow to cook for a minute, turn to coat and serve! Spoon over extra sauce.
We served ours with green bean almandine....Green beans that have been par-boiled for 3 minutes then tossed with toasted almonds, 1 TB butter, S/P! Done and Done!
For some of our dieting friends, the Everyday Food recipe website has the nutritional info, it appears really healthy and the portions were really good! The pork loin is super lean, the only extra fat is the olive oil.
