Good stuff. I didn't do the lemon juice, and used half olive oil and half butter. Seasoned flour with Nature's Seasons Seasoning Blend. Thanks for posting!

So quick, so easy, and so YUM! We followed the recipe just about exactly, and it only took about 15 minutes from the beginning of prep to the finished product, and oh my, was it ever good. We will be having this again often, I think. We had it with steamed green beans, orange cranberry relish, and the South Beach Cauliflower Mash with Chives (Recipe #339923), and felt that it made a delicious and very quick dinner.

We thoroughly enjoyed these pork medallions. This is GREAT when you are short on time. By pounding the medallions, your cook time is quick (mine cooked up perfectly in about 5 minutes) and it produces tender and flavorful pork. I served this with baked potatoes and steamed brocolii. This will make a repeat performance on our table. I recommend this to everyone. Thanks for sharing, Sugarpea!!!
