Apricot Onion Pork Medallions

I'm trying this new recipe for tonight's dinner. It sounds lovely and I will come back and add a review after we have it. I'm going to modify it a bit to suit my need for simplicity. This recipe is modified from the version found in All You's Eat Well Save Big Cook Book

1 lb whole pork tender loin, sliced into one inch slices
1/2 tsp tried thyme
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 onion thinly sliced
1/2 cup low fat chicken broth
2 tbsp apricot jam
2 tbsp Dijon Mustard

Salt and pepper tenderloin on all sides to taste. Place in slow cooker. Arrange the sliced onion around the tenderloin.  Combine remaining ingredients and pour mixture over the tenderloin and onions. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours, until tender. This recipe serves 4 people

The original recipe called for these to be fried in butter and olive oil but I decided to cut the fat and make these a little more weight loss surgery friendly.

  1. Hello, I always like to read about Health tips.

    I lost approx 100 Pounds weight.

    It was my biggest dream which was come true by california medical weight management.

    I had tried many things, like control on diets, workout at home, weight loss pills and many other things, but nothing helped me. I had lost lot of money.

    One day I got an offer for free medical weight loss checkup and 40% discount on Program. I went for free consultation. They ensured me that I would lose my weight, they shown me previous results, their techniques and programs. I was impressed and enrolled in the program. Within a month, I lost 25 Pounds. I was so happy. In another 4 months I lost 100 pounds.

    My all friends were surprised, that was amazing...
    I am thankful of Dr. Michael.

    Friends, if you want to lose weight, I suggest you to talk with the doctor, they offer free weight loss consultation, to contact them, you just need to make appointment online and they will call you for free advice. Best of luck....
