Grilled Pork With Mustard Sauce Recipe & Video


Summer is winding down, and by now, you may be a little tired of the same-old meals you’ve been grilling up all summer. (Not burgers, again?) Or maybe you’re just looking for some healthier options and grilling ideas to impress friends and family this holiday weekend.

This grilled pork medallions recipe is just what you need. Marinated overnight for juicy flavor and finished with a drizzle of a nearly addictive mustard sauce, your family or guests will never miss the burgers. Serve it with a fresh green salad or other vegetable side.

Yield: 8 servings of 3 medallions each

Ingredients for your Kroger shopping list:
2 pork tenderloins (16 ounces each), fat trimmed and each sliced into 12 medallions

1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract
1/3 cup water
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar

1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup fat-free half-and-half
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon Kroger salt

Make the marinade in a small bowl by combining soy sauce, vanilla extract, water and brown sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Place marinade and pork medallions in a large resealable plastic bag. Marinate at least 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Prepare the grill by spraying the cold grate with grilling spray and then turn grill to medium-high heat. Remove medallions from marinade, and place them on the grill. Discard marinade. Cook medallions approximately 20-30 minutes, turning every 5-10 minutes until medallions reach an internal temperature of 145º F. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

To make the mustard sauce, whisk together maple syrup, half-and-half, Dijon mustard and salt in a small pan. Heat over medium-low heat. Do not allow sauce to boil. Remove from heat and drizzle over medallions before serving.

Chef Notes: A thin silver membrane is usually on one side of the tenderloin. It is very tough and should be removed before cooking. Slide a sharp knife under the silver and cut it away.
