1/1 Photo of Pork Medallions With Chocolate-Orange Sauce
The combination of chocolate and orange flavors is addicting. This recipe is easy enough for weeknight meals; however, has a beautiful presentation for that special dinner party. This recipe is from the February 1996 edition of Delicious Living.
