Serves 4

  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 450g pork tenderloin, cut into 8 medallions
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
To serve:
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Green vegetables


1. Heat one tablespoon of the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat.

2. Season the pork medallions generously on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook in the pan for 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove to a plate, cover with tin foil and allow to rest.

3. Return the same pan to a medium heat and add the remaining olive oil. Add the garlic and cook for one minute. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Simmer for five minutes, stirring occasionally, then remove from the heat. MAKE IT YOURS: If you’re not a fan of parsley, use any fresh herbs you have in the house or a mixture.

4. Add the lemon zest and juice along with the parsley. Stir until combined.

5. Place the pork medallions on serving plates and spoon the sauce over the top.
