These pork medallions do all the heavy lifting, making it easy to cook a quick and delicious meal in less than 30 minutes.
With a little help from your favorite premade teriyaki sauce and a can of crushed pineapple, this meal is so simple it practically makes itself. And it’s all made in one skillet, which is good news, especially when it’s time to wash the dishes.
Biting into this tender pork along with crushed pineapple and teriyaki is heavenly.
I especially like the small bits of crunch from the sliced Chinese pea pods and green onion. Get more of your evening back by making this quick and easy dinner that tastes like it took more than 30 minutes to make.
