Grilled Pork Medallions With Lemon And Rosemary Recipe @pinch

Never has grilled pork been so tender and juicy! The marinade adds a wonderful fresh herb flavor and accents the herb havetossed bean salad nicely. After the pork medallions marinate, they are quickly seared on a hot grill which locks in the juices. The pork is so tender, you could cut it with a fork. These grilled pork medallions with lemon and rosemary are a wonderful summer meal served over a wild rice medley with bean salad and green onion on the side. I am notorious for over havecooking my pork loins and also didn't want to turn on my oven (It is summer right now and very hot). So, I decided to wing this one (musician's term for doing a song with no rehearsal) and WOW, it turned out fantastic! Please let me know if you try it. Also, the prep/cook times I listed may be wrong...I was taking my time, so the ones I listed are guesstimates. Enjoy!www.trebleclefchef.blogspot.com

Intructions :
  • In a zip bag or dish, place pork medallions with the rest of the marinade ingredients. Massage the marinade into the pork, cover and let sit while you prepare the veggies
  • Heat your grill pan on medium-high for at least 5 minutes. Put onion slices on grill. Brush with a little olive oil. Salt and pepper. Turn when grill marks appear. Set aside to keep warm
  • Put red peppers directly onto flame (gas stovetop only!!) Cook, turning, until peppers are completely blackened and charred all over
  • Wrap each in a paper towel and let sit to steam for a couple of minutes, until cool enough to handle
  • Rinse under water to peel off the skin and take out the seeds. Chop into slices
  • Wash green beans and put them in a microwave safe dish. Cover and vent. Cook on high for 3-4 minutes. Put aside to keep warm. Open the can of beans and rinse in a colander. Mix beans with the rest of the ingredients plus the sliced red peppers
  • Put medallions on hot grill for 3 minutes each side. Don't lift or mess with them for those 3 minutes. Let them get a nice sear! After grilling, let the meat rest for another 3-5 minutes or so on a plate or in a bowl. Cover with foil
  • Assemble the plate and eat!!
