Pork Medallions With Cranberries and Apples

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Susan Dillard

This is very good on a crisp fall night and goes together quickly. Leftovers are good reheated. I got this from a magazine and my husband who isn't a big pork lover really liked it too!

Top Review by Chef Tweaker

I'm surprised to give this 5 stars. Two reasons it gets the highest rating... 1) hubby loved it and said I can't lose the recipe. 2) I used boneless pork chops with lots of dark meat and there was no strong pork flavor. I don't really like pork and this turned out very tender and juicy... for the first time I think I enjoyed it! I used frozen cranberries, cran-apple juice and rosemary for the sage with good results. I think I cooked it much longer in step 11 but it still comes together quite quickly.
