Pork Medallions With Red Currant Sauce

Red current jelly renders the sauce a vibrant crimson though you can use any variety of fruit jelly. This has become DH's favorite meal, he asks for it quite often. I do not mind because it is quick, easy and very tasty. The first time I tried the recipe I made the sauce as well. My family did not care for it, so I now just make the tenderloin. Cooking Light.

Made this for Spring PAC 2012 and I am soooo glad I picked this recipe. I did cut back on the vinegar a little but otherwise followed the instructions completely. A really great and easy meal. Thank you.

This was really tasty. We had it for dinner last night and are having it again tonight! I used cherry perserves instead of the red currant. I think I would cut back a bit on the vinegar next time. The spice rub on the meat smells a lot like breakfast sausage when it is cooking. Great meal. Thanks! Made for Spring PAC '09
