Recipe Review | Pork Tenderloin Medallions + Blistered Broccolini

This latest recipe came out of the May 2015 issue of Cooking Light magazine. The actual recipe calls for broccoli rabe which I could not find in my supermarket so I substituted broccolini. If you're interested in knowing the difference, look here
I love making pork medallions because they are so easy to prepare, always stay juicy, and offer a great lean protein alternative (enough chicken already!). The whole family is fond of any roasted vegetable, making this meal a home run.
