Pork Medallions with Mustard Sauce

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1-pound pork tenderloin
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon pepper
Pinch of thyme
3 tablespoons butter
3 green onions, sliced with white and green parts separated
1/3 cup white wine
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
Splash of Worcestershire sauce (optional)

Instructions

Cut tenderloin crosswise into 1/2-inch medallioins. Pound between sheets of wax paper to 1/4-inch thickness. Combine flour, salt, thyme and pepper in a shalow dish. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter over high heat and dredge pork in seasoned flour shaking off excess before adding to hot skillet. Saute until brown. Transfer to a platter and keep warm. Repeat until all the pork is cooked, adding butter as you cook pork. Add white parts of onions to the skillet and saute until tender, about 1 minute. Stir in the wine and boil to reduce to about half, about 2 minutes. Add cream and simmer until thickened to sauce, about 5 minutes. Whisk in mustard and adjust seasonings (salt and pepper) to taste. Spoon sauce over the pork and garnish with remaining green parts of onion. Serve and enjoy.
