Breaded Pork Medallions
Updated: Jun 24
I'm that girl that loves a good Schnitzel, who doesn't?!?! But we all know that deep fried meat just isn't the way to good health, right? Plus who wants to get their hands all dirty with eggs, flour and bread crumbs. This recipe is a nice breaded substitute and it's super flavorful and yummy. My kids absolutely love it. You can serve it with some Mashed potatoes (with cauliflower hidden inside of course!) and green beans!
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 8 medallions
1/2 cup whole wheat panko Japanese bread crumbs
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons
extra-virgin olive oil
1. Rub mustard evenly over pork medallions. 2. Combine panko, thyme, parsley, salt, & pepper in a large bowl. Dredge pork in panko mixture. 3. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. 4. Add pork; sauté 2 minutes or until golden brown. 5. Turn pork. Place skillet in oven; bake at 450° for 8 minutes or until pork reaches 145°. 6. Let stand 3 minutes.
