Date Night Dinner Recipe: Pomegranate Pork Medallions #HeartHealthy

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Mixed Berries w/ Pomegranates (Dole) found in the frozen food section (or equivalent fresh or frozen berries of choice)
  • 1 pound boneless pork tenderloin (sliced into 1/2-inch thick medallions)
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 cup Pomegranate juice
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 TBSP agave (or honey)

Instructions

  1. Prior to starting, take pork out of refrigerator to rest for 15-30 minutes. Also, puree berries to prepare for sauce. I like to keep the pomegranates whole for presentation so I remove them before pureeing, but you be the judge.
  2. Heat 1/2 TBSP olive oil over medium-high heat. While warming oil, sprinkle pork with salt/pepper. Cook pork for approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Place in oven at 200 degrees to keep warm.
  3. Now add last 1/2 TBSP oil to pan. Stir in pomegranate juice, stock, agave, and berry puree + pomegrantes. Simmer until the sauce thickens about 8-10 minutes.
