Parmesan Pork Medallions

Here's one of the best pork medallion recipes I've found. With my own special tweaks, I have served this tender pork countless times for family and friends. It takes very little prep time and adapts easily to serve any number. —Angela Ciocca, Saltsburg, Pennsylvania

    I bet you can do this in the Instant Pot and it would be delicious and tender.

    Great week night meal. Also have used minced onion in place of sliced onions for those who don't like sauted onions

    This is quick and easy and loved by the entire family. My 5 year old granddaughter gave it 2 thumbs up. I like to serve it with a mushroom lemon broth. Lynne, TOH volunteer food editor

    My whole family loves this recipe. Quick, easy, and yummy, pretty much sum it up. I also found the recipe in the Comfort Food Diet cookbook. I have been lazy, and use onion powder instead of chopping an onion, and double the amounts on the seasoning, we like things with a bolder flavor. The recipe is also easily doubled. Yummy.
