The secret to juicier and tender pork is letting the pork rest for a few minutes before cutting. That’s because juices rise to the surface while cooking and when pork stands, it allows the juices to settle and return to the center. If you slice the pork tenderloin too early, it will allow the juices to run out, creating dry meat. Also, marinating the meat for several hours will help you get juicier pork loin filets.

I love spending time with my family and cooking a delicious meal every night, but I don’t love spending hours in the kitchen. Instead, I prefer to keep things simple so I can enjoy time with my husband or family when visiting, which is why I love Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork. The meal was fabulous and I spent only about 25 minutes in the kitchen. You can also add a side and a light salad to your meal. While the pork tenderloin was roasting, I boiled some potatoes. You can also serve these pork medallions with creamy mushroom marsala sauce with mashed potatoes, or mashed cauliflower.
Smithfield offers a variety of meat cuts and products made from 100% fresh pork and it is packed with protein. Their pork tenderloin is available in a variety of flavors across Tenderloins, Loin Filets and Sirloins. I bought the Steakhouse Mushroom Marinated Pork Loin Filet and it was very flavorful, and it was perfect with the mushroom marsala sauce I made. Those flavors were amazing – true comfort food for the fall and for those busy weekends tailgating or for quick family dinners. Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is definitely on my go-to recipe list for an easy meal solution for any night of the week, not just occasions. Visit Smithfield for more recipe ideas.

How To Make Pork Medallions with Creamy Mushroom Marsala Sauce
Pork Medallions with Creamy Mushroom Marsala Sauce
- Preheat oven to 400 F with the rack in the middle.
- Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a large oven-safe (cast iron skillet or Dutch oven will work) skillet over medium-high heat. Once butter is melted, add pork loin and brown on all sides (about 6 minutes total).
- Place skillet in the oven and bake at 400 F for about 13 - 15 minutes, flipping the pork loin over halfway through baking. Bake until center of pork registers 160 F then transfer to a cutting board and let the meat rest for 5 - 10 minutes.
- While pork loin is baking, melt remaining 1 tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and minced garlic to the skillet, and cook for a couple of minutes until onion is translucent and soft. Add sliced mushrooms and stir. Season everything generously with salt and pepper. Let cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. When mushrooms are tender, add wine and heavy whipping cream. Stir and cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally until sauce thickens. The sauce will thicken more when it cools off. Season the creamy mushroom marsala sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
- Slice pork loin in medallions and serve topped with the creamy mushroom marsala sauce.
- You can also serve the pork medallions with potatoes and a light salad.
