This savory, creamy, all-together tasty dish is an easy one pan skillet dish that proves pesto's not just for pasta! Our Pesto Pork Medallions are an elegant, company-ready main course that is sure to impress again and again. But, just between us, it only takes ten minutes to whip up! That's a ton of gourmet flavor in absolutely no time at all. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup pesto sauce
  • 3 plum tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices

What to Do

  1. Place pork loin on a cutting board and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices. One at a time, lay each slice between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a kitchen mallet or rolling pin until it’s about 1/4-inch thick. Repeat until all the pork is flattened. 
  2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Season pork medallions with salt and pepper, then place in flour and coat evenly on both sides.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add pork and cook in batches 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden, adding more butter as needed. Remove pork to a covered platter to keep warm.
  4. Add cream and pesto to skillet; mix well. Add tomatoes and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Spoon tomatoes and sauce over pork medallions and enjoy.

Thinking of subing either greek yogurt, cream of mushroom soup, sour cream or milk. What would you suggest?

Hi there! We recommend the sour cream or Greek yogurt as a substitution for the heavy cream. Enjoy!
