Now that it’s cooling down, I’m reminded of how much I love the fall, the colors on the trees and the tasty fall vegetables. We love going apple picking and other fun fall activities as well and have been enjoying them recently. Fall also means back to school, though, and so we have been readjusting our schedules. Having some quick and easy meal options to turn to is definitely helpful, and even better one with lots of flavor. This pork skillet is exactly that! It’s a colorful, tasty meal cooked all in one pan, so there’s very little clean-up needed.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy pork tenderloin is to cook it up medallion-style. Pan-seared Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is perfect when sliced and served over salad, roasted potatoes, in a wrap, or as a hearty appetizer on its own. You could cook the tenderloin and then slice it, but then you would miss the crispy seared coating that touches every corner of these gems.
I picked up the Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet and everything else for this recipe at Walmart – you’ll find the pork in the meat section. This recipe uses the Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet but you can also try it with the Applewood Smoked Bacon Loin Filet or Smithfield Slow Smoked Mesquite Flavor Loin Filet to mix it up and change up the flavors. Smithfield’s Marinated Fresh Pork is a handy way to get lots of flavor into a quick meal.
These Easy One Skillet Pork Tenderloin Medallions are so easy to make, using just one pan and taking less than half an hour to put together. The result is a delicious family-friendly meal, that’s full of flavor and pretty healthy too. It’s definitely a meal to add to your go-to list for busy nights.
I know you guys will love this skillet meal as much as my family! It’s:

This recipe is great served with a leafy green salad or even atop a bed of quinoa for more protein (see recipe + notes for more options). It could also pair especially well with my Easy Roasted Dill Red Potatoes, Blueberry Pecan Quinoa Salad, Creamy Dijon Mustard Cauliflower Salad, or Roasted Butternut Squash Brown Rice Holiday Salad!
