A Cuban-inspired pork recipe. Pork medallions are rubbed with lime zest, olive oil, cumin, salt, crushed chillies and garlic, then pan-fried to perfection. Serve with potatoes, rice or pasta.
Yummy,tweaked the recipe a bit tho: added two cloves of garlic, crushed and a teaspoon of brown sugar and some olive oil and marinated the meat along with the crushed chilli and lime zest. When i fried it up i gradually added the lime juice. lime tartness was softened slightly. Was super yummy, will definitely be making it again - 05 Aug 2011
Found the end result to be tasty but a little too much lime in the sauce. I will leave out the lime juice for the sauce and add a little butter to make the sauce next time. - 20 Sep 2010
This is a fantastic and easy recipe. I followed others suggestions about increasing olive oil and decreasing salt. And the sauce this creates is yummy. I served it with roasted potatoes (olive oil, garlic salt, pepper and a little dried oregano). As a salad, combined bibb lettuce, toasted almonds, mandarin oranges, red onion, with a blush vinaigrette. The dinner was devoured and people continued to talk about it the remainder of the evening. - 03 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
