Crispy Pork Medallions

Time: 40 minutes

Flavor Hit: Mustard adds tanginess to the pork and helps the crust adhere to the meat.

Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and 1 minced garlic clove; toss well to coat. Arrange vegetable mixture on a rack placed in a broiler pan.
