This Balsamic Pork Medallions with Caper Cream Sauce recipe makes one of my favorite meals because it is quick and easy and can be on the dinner table in 30 minutes for a delicious weeknight dinner.
Balsamic Pork Medallions with Caper Cream Sauce are one of my go-to weeknight meals because I use Smithfield All Natural Pork Tenderloin, which makes them incredibly tender and juicy without added steroids, hormones, or artificial ingredients. It is very versatile because it tastes amazing when it is grilled or roasted for a Sunday dinner. However, for me on a weeknight, I slice the tenderloin into 1-inch slices and saute them in a pan for a few minutes on each side and they are done! You can’t get much easier than that.
This is one of those meals to have in your back pocket if you have surprise guests or need to impress the boss with a delicious gourmet dinner. Serve it with the Asiago Bruschetta Roasted Asparagus or Lemon Asparagus Asiago Brown Rice for a complete meal.
If I have unexpected guests, I will head to Walmart to pick up a Smithfield All Natural Pork Tenderloin for a delicious weeknight meal. I usually will buy an additional one to keep in the freezer as well.

I can feel good about serving Smithfield® to my family because they are raised in the USA by farm families and made with commitment, care, and compassion.
Even though this is an impressive gourmet meal, it is so quick and easy, we like to have it for a fast weeknight dinner.
