Pork Medallions with Mushroom Marsala Sauce
Pork. Mushrooms. Marsala. What’s not to love about this dish? It’s meaty, earthy and is sure to become a recipe in your go to repertoire. Serve the saucy medallions over a bed of glorious garlic mashed potatoes OR creamy polenta and call it a night. But not before adding a baguette. That sauce is the kicker. I mean it’s okay to lick the plate when no one is around but if you have guests it’s probably best to mop it up with a nice piece of toasty bread.
Did I mention you can make these sexy saucy medallions in just 15 minutes? As if it wasn’t looking good enough already now you know it’s not going to take you ALL night to make. Have you added this your menu planning yet? Start out with a Smithfield portobello mushroom marinated pork tenderloin. When grilled or baked whole Smithfield’s tenderloins are ready to enjoy in about 20 to 30 minutes. Not bad BUT we’ve shaved off even more cooking time by cutting our tenderloin into medallion portions. With piano lessons, band practice, youth group, karate and tutoring in some combination or another every weeknight afternoon I need simple and delicious (and would gas at a reasonable price to fill up my tank because clearly I am a taxi driver be too much to ask for?)
Because you know we like options, Smithfield marinated pork tenderloins come in the following flavors: Garlic & Herb, Peppercorn Garlic, Portobello Mushroom, Teriyaki, Golden Rotisserie, Mesquite, Rosemary & Olive Oil. For those of you watching your sodium intake, they’ve lowered the sodium in all of their marinated pork products an average of 25.5%, making them healthier than ever.
