Pork Medallions with Roasted Nectarines

Lean pork tenderloin cooks quickly when sliced across the grain into neat rounds. Match the inherent sweetness of the meat with juicy late-summer nectarines, which caramelize in the heat of the pan. This recipe would also be delicious with peaches or fresh figs.

Serve With

Apple-Stuffed Pork Loin with Cider Sauce

This roast is also good as part of a buffet. Slice the loin thin, but do not serve the cider sauce. For a more seasonal stuffing during the winter holidays, add 1/4 cup dried cranberries to the apples.
