“Pork tenderloin is a great choice for dinner when it's thinly sliced into quick-cooking medallions. A tart cranberry and onion relish adds delicious taste to each bite of this 30-minute entree.”


    • 12 ounces pork tenderloin
    • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
    • Pinch of salt
    • Pinch of ground pepper
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
    • ¼ cup dried cranberries
    • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
    • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


  • 1 Trim fat from pork. Cut the pork crosswise into eight slices. Place each slice between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, lightly pound the pork to ¼-inch thickness. Discard plastic wrap.
  • 2 Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Dip the pork slices into the flour mixture, turning to coat. Coat a heavy large skillet with cooking spray. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet; heat over medium-high heat. Add four pork slices to the hot oil; cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the pork is slightly pink in the center, turning once halfway through the cooking time. Transfer the pork to a serving platter; cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining four pork slices.
  • 3 Cook onion in the same skillet over medium heat for about 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Combine cranberries, broth, and vinegar in a small bowl; carefully add to the skillet. Heat through. Serve the onion mixture over the pork slices.
