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."

  1. 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.
  2. 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


<p>Hi! <br /><br />Orignally from Chicago, I now live in the sunny Phoenix&nbsp;with hubby, Tom, son, Justin and our dogs, Axel and Jhazmine and kitty, Muggles.&nbsp; <br /><br />I have a compulsion/obsession for cookbooks. My husband says we may have to build a wing onto the house...I have soooo many. I really do not have a favorite, although I do like the Taste of Home books because they contain recipes my family will actually eat. My passions are cooking great food for family and friends, music and traveling to warm, tropical places...oh and SHOPPING!</p>
