Grilled Pork Medallions with Lemon and Rosemary

cassie thornburg


I am notorious for over-cooking my pork loins and also didn't want to turn on my oven (it's summer right now and very hot), so I decided to wing this one (musician's term for doing a song with no rehearsal) and WOW, it turned out fantastic! Please let me know if you try it. Also, the prep/cook times I listed may be wrong....I was taking my time, so the ones I listed are "guestimates". Lastly....this is my first time on this site and now I know to take "step-by-step" pictures. Sorry I don't have those this time! enjoy.

How to Make Grilled Pork Medallions with Lemon and Rosemary


  1. Heat your grill pan on medium-high for at least 5 minutes.
  2. In a zip bag or dish, place pork medallions with the rest of the marinade ingredients. Massage the marinade into the pork, cover and let sit while you prepare the veggies.
  3. Put onion slices on grill. Brush with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Turn when grill marks appear. Set aside to keep warm.
  4. Put red peppers directly onto flame (gas stovetop only!!) Cook, turning, until peppers are completely blackened and charred all over. Wrap each in paper towel and let sit to steam for a couple of minutes, until cool enough to handle. Rinse under water to peel off skin and take out the seeds. Chop into slices.
  5. Wash green beans and put them in a microwave safe dish. Cover and vent. Cook on high for 3-4 minutes. Put aside to keep warm.
  6. Open the can of beans and rinse in a colander. Mix beans with the rest of the ingredients plus the sliced red peppers.
  7. Put medallions on hot grill for 3 minutes each side. Don't lift or mess with them for those 3 minutes. Let em get a nice sear! After grilling, let the meat rest for another 3-5 minutes or so on a plate or in a bowl, covered with foil.
  8. Eat!!
