Pork Medallions with Mushroom Marsala Sauce.

Pork. Mushrooms. Marsala. What’s not to love about this dish? It’s meaty, earthy and is sure to become a recipe in your go to repertoire. Serve the saucy medallions over a bed of glorious garlic mashed potatoes OR creamy polenta and call it a night. But not before adding a baguette. That sauce is the kicker. I mean it’s okay to lick the plate when no one is around but if you have guests it’s probably best to mop it up with a nice piece of toasty bread.

Did I mention you can make these sexy saucy medallions in just 15 minutes? As if it wasn’t looking good enough already now you know it’s not going to take you ALL night to make. Have you added this your menu planning yet? Start out with a Smithfield portobello mushroom marinated pork tenderloin. When grilled or baked whole Smithfield’s tenderloins are ready to enjoy in about 20 to 30 minutes. Not bad BUT we’ve shaved off even more cooking time by cutting our tenderloin into medallion portions. With piano lessons, band practice, youth group, karate and tutoring in some combination or another every weeknight afternoon I need simple and delicious (and would gas at a reasonable price to fill up my tank because clearly I am a taxi driver be too much to ask for?)

    Nothing compares to the flavor combo of ‘shrooms in Marsala on top of pork. I make a recipe very similar to this and it is a family fave! Saved to try next!

    Hi Paula, this looks and sounds utterly delectable and I need to go to the store IMMEDIATELY!!! One question though. I do not cook a lot of pork. Is 4-6 minutes actually enough time to cook through a 2 inch medallion? My hubby is very cautious when it comes to undercooked meats:( So I just need to be sure:) Thanks and Happy New Year!!

      I believe the thickness should be 1/2″ not 2″. Look at the pictures the meat isn’t 2″ thick, that convinced me to reduce the thickness. We made it and it’s wonderful

        Hello Harry…and THANK YOU!! It’s been so long ago that I asked this question, I forgot all about it. Actually, now looking over the entire post again…I am fairly sure the author meant 2 inches diameter, not thickness. I am a silly gal for sure:)
