Instructions


  1. Cut pork tenderloin into 3-ounce portions, trimming any visceral fat and lightly pound to flatten.

  2. To season flour, add freshly ground pepper and salt to taste. Lightly coat tenderloin portions with flour. Heat skillet and add the canola oil.

  3. Saute medallions until golden brown on each side. Remove from skillet and set aside.

  4. In a separate skillet, mix red currant jelly and chardonnay, heat and reduce until it reaches a glaze consistency, about 10 minutes. Add sautéed pork medallions and coat them with the glaze.

  5. Meanwhile, blanch asparagus tips in boiling water just until crisp-tender.

  6. Pour glaze onto plates (to cover entire center of the plates). Place medallions in the center of the glaze and arrange 4 asparagus tips around the perimeter of each plate for garnish.

Tips & Notes

Can't find red currant jelly? To get a tart flavor similar to that of red currants, mix 3 parts apple jelly with 1 part lemon juice. You can also substitute grape jelly, though it will be a bit sweeter.
