MUSHROOM PORK MEDALLIONS

2/3 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp salt
dash of freshly ground black pepper
1/2 lb pork tenderloin, cut into 4 medallions
1 tbsp seasoned bread crumbs
1 tbsp olive or canola oil
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

In a medium bowl, slowly whisk the chicken broth and tomato paste together.  Stir in the seasonings.

Using a saucer or meat mallet, flatten the pork into 1-inch thickness.  Lightly coat the pork with the bread crumbs.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  When the oil is hot, cook the pork for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown.  Turn once during cooking to brown both sides.  Remove from the skillet and place on plate.

Reduce the heat under the skillet to medium and add the mushrooms; cook about 3 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring often.  Return the pork medallions to the skillet with the mushrooms and add the broth/tomato paste mixture.  Reduce the heat to low and cover.  Simmer 3 or 4 minutes until the pork is cooked through.  Remove the pork to a plate.

Increase the heat under the skillet to high and boil the sauce 2 or 3 minutes until reduced and slightly thickened.  Serve the sauce over the pork.




Yield: 2 servings.
