Pork Medallions with Apricot-Sage Sauce

Number of Servings: 2

Serving Size: 3 ounces pork and 3 tablespoons sauce per serving Prep time: 5 minutes

Fresh sage, with its distinctive flavor, is perfectly balanced against tangy apricot preserves in a delicious sauce.

Name: Amount:
pork tenderloin, all visible fat discarded, cut into1/2-in slices 8 oz
pepper 0.13 tsp
olive oil 1 tsp
finely chopped shallot or onion 1 Tbsp
fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth 0.50 cup
or 2 medium fresh sage leaves 1 large
all-fruit apricot spread 2 Tbsp

Season the pork on both sides with the pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Cook the pork for 6 to 8 minutes, or until just slightly pink in the center, turning once. Transfer to a plate. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.


Put the shallot in the skillet. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.


Pour the broth into the skillet, stirring to dislodge any browned bits. Let boil for about 5 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced to about half (about 1/4 cup).


Meanwhile, chop the sage. Whisk the sage and apricot spread into the sauce. Spoon over the pork. Chop the leaves right before adding them to the sauce. If they stand too long, the cut edges will turn brown.
