Grilled Pork Medallions


These little medallions were 
quick and delicious!




The recipe is  pretty straightforward:  blend Dijon mustard, oregano, garlic and seasonings with a little olive oil, rub over the pork medallions and grill.






We concurred on this ~ the pork was tasty and tender, perfect for summertime grilling, and a it will be a repeat before long.

Serve it with you favorite side dish and a little green salad, and Voila!  You’ll have a great tasty quick dinner.

  7. Pam, We love pork! In its various forms, it's our favorite meat... I like your rub a lot and I'm sure it adds a lot of flavor to the grilled medallions. The trick with pork is not to overcook it. My wife and my mother used to fight over the proper 'doneness' of pork. Mom wanted it gray all the way through...dead as it were. Ah...what memories! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  13. Dear Pam,
    Pork medallions are so tasty on the grill. The marinade of the mustard with the garlic must be a wonderful flavor. This is so simple and a delicious entree for you and your guests. A big green salad would be delightful with the pork. Thanks for sharing...have a good rest of the week...
    Hugs Dottie :)
