Pork Medallions with Sherried Shallot Sauce - You'll feel like a rockstar chef when you serve up this amazing meal: slices of pork tenderloin bathed in a sherry and shallot sauce atop mashed potatoes. It tastes like a million bucks, but it won't cost you more than ten bucks.

This meal has been on our dinner table a lot over the past year. As I watched the price of beef slowly shoot into the heavens, I started looking for alternate (read: affordable) proteins. I’ve been very pleased to find pork tenderloin on sale in the $3/lb range. The price makes it doable for our family.

This recipe makes it delicious.

My boys are meativores. (Their term, not mine.) Their eyes light up when something meaty is on the menu. This dish ranks as a top favorite. My family loves this meal so much that it’s become a request for special occasions. It’s perfect for holiday get-togethers, birthdays, anniversaries, tonight’s dinner. You name it.

Pork tenderloin is just that — tender. I have a hard time not overcooking pork chops, so this is a great cut that allows us to enjoy “the other white meat.”

The sauce isn’t too heavy, but it’s packed with flavor. The dish is great over smashed potatoes, but you can easily serve them over rice, egg noodles, or quinoa instead.

Grab pork tenderloin when it’s on sale and stash it in the freezer so you can make this meal whenever the mood strikes.

    My son is also a self-proclaimed meativore, as was his father. This sounds good, and I thought I still had some tenderloin in the freezer, but the inventory list says no, so I’ll have to keep an eye out for some sales.

    This looks amazing! I’m excited to try it. 🙂 Two questions – where do I find your recipe for the FishMama Seasoning Salt (is this like Lawry’s??) and do you have any favorite recommendations for the brand/type of Sherry? I always struggle with the latter… Thank you!! 🙂

    Hi FishMama,

    I’m relatively new to your site and have been learning and enjoying! I have a question for this recipe: are there any good substitues for the sherry? Thank you.

    • White wine and marsala would both work or more chicken broth if you don’t want the alcohol.
