Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Piperade

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2009


  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each), ends trimmed, and trimmings cut into small chunks
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • Piperade


  1. Season pork with salt. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add pork tenderloins and trimmings. Brown on all sides. Remove tenderloins from pan (leave in trimmings), and cut into 1-inch-thick medallions. Season with salt.

  2. Return skillet to medium-high heat, and add medallions (in batches if necessary) and garlic. Cook until medallions are browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Flip, and brown on opposite side, about 1 minute. Add 2 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup water, and the thyme. Cook for 3 minutes more, flipping medallions once or twice. Transfer medallions to a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Tent with foil.

  3. Add 1 tablespoon butter to skillet, and continue to cook until trimmings are dark brown, about 3 minutes. Add remaining 1/2 cup water and tablespoon butter, and deglaze skillet, scraping up browned bits with a wooden spoon. Add any accumulated juices from the baking sheet under the pork, and season sauce with salt and pepper. Strain sauce through a fine sieve; discard solids. Serve pork medallions topped with sauce and piperade.
