Photo Russian Style Pork Medallions And Mushrooms

The recipe pork medallions I brought from Russia many years ago. What is convenient about serving this dish, we can fry medallions in advance and after cover with vegetables and cheese can leave on the pan by guests arrive. When guests eat salad or starters, the meat will be ready to serve. We can use other parts of pork but the best is tenderloin for this recipe. I tried substitute mayonnaise for sour cream and I personally, don’t like it.

If you looking for a healthier way, make mayonnaise yourself. Really it is very easy. I have very detailed technology and of course, the recipe of mayonnaise. Thank you old Russian textbook for cooks! Just a few details there and you never failed to make your own mayo!

*A great substitute for meat mallet is a rolling pin.
