Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Large Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" pieces at an angle. Peel and cut turnip into ¾" dice. Mince chives.

  • Step 2 - Roast the Vegetables

    Roast the Vegetables

    Place carrot and turnip on prepared baking sheet and toss with honey, 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until slightly charred and tender, 18-20 minutes. While vegetables roast, prepare medallions.

  • Step 3 - Cut the Medallions

    Cut the Medallions

    Pat pork tenderloin dry. On a separate cutting board, slice pork tenderloin into ¾"-thick medallions. Season both sides with half the coffee rub (reserve remaining for sauce) and ½ tsp. salt.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Medallions

    Cook the Medallions

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add pork medallions to hot pan and cook until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side. Remove medallions to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 5 - Make the Sauce

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook pork to medium-high heat. Add ¼ cup water, demi-glace, Dijon, remaining coffee rub, and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 2-4 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing vegetables with chives and spooning sauce over pork medallions. Bon appétit!
