Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cranberries and port in a small bowl. Set aside. Slice tenderloin into medallions 1 1/2 inches thick. Place between 2 layers of plastic wrap, and pound the medallions with the bottom of a saucepan until they are 1/2 inch thick. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

  • Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sear medallions on one side until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and sear on the other side for 4 to 5 minutes; turn medallions again and continue cooking until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove to a serving platter and cover loosely to keep warm.

  • Add garlic to the pan and return to medium-high heat. Cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add port with cranberries, vinegar and sage leaves; cook for 1 minute, scraping skillet for browned bits. Pour in broth, swirl the pan and bring to a boil again. Continue cooking until sauce thickens and is reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Remove the garlic and sage. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon over the pork and serve.

Good job! Easy to make and tasty. We didn't have port so used Marsala wine. Read More

REALLY Great! I made this for dinner tonight served with mashed cauliflower. It was awesome! It tasted rich and flavorful - almost sinful! It was easy to make and took a total of 10 minutes! I did leave the garlic & sage in the sauce and blended the sauce with an immersion blender. I served the sauce over both the pork & the caulilower and it was positively delicious! My hubby who doesn't like cranberries port or balsamic vinegar asked for seconds & requested this be put in the regular rotation! I will definately be making this again! Pros: Easy Flavorful Cons: None Read More
