“This is a recipe by Maren Lisac, chef of the Blue Plate Diner in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This would absolutely impress your guests. Enjoy! A note about pork: the trichinosis parasite has been eradicated from pork in Canada, so it no longer has to be cooked to the well-done stage. Cuts like medallions and chops are much juicier and far more tender if cooked to the medium-rare to the medium-well stages.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. SAUCE: Simmer the Saskatoon berries, rhubarb and water over medium heat until soft (approximately 30 minutes). Blend the sauce in a food processor until smooth. Stir in the sugar, salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, and white wine.
  2. PORK MEDALLIONS: Trim the fat and the silvery membrane from the pork tenderloin. Slice the tenderloin into 1” thick medallions. Heat the canola oil in a very hot, heavy frying pan. For medium-rare medallions, sear them for about 1½ minutes on each side. For well-done medallions, sear them for about 4 minutes on each side. Lightly season the medallions with salt and pepper.
  3. TO SERVE: Reheat the Saskatoon and rhubarb sauce. Remove the sauce from the heat and quickly whisk in the butter. Drizzle the sauce over the pork medallions and garnish with a sprig of rosemary or thyme. Serve immediately.
