What to Do
- Place pork loin on a cutting board and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices. One at a time, lay each slice between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a kitchen mallet or rolling pin until it’s about 1/4-inch thick. Repeat until all the pork is flattened.
- Place flour in a shallow dish. Season pork medallions with salt and pepper, then place in flour and coat evenly on both sides.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add pork and cook in batches 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden, adding more butter as needed. Remove pork to a covered platter to keep warm.
- Add cream and pesto to skillet; mix well. Add tomatoes and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Spoon tomatoes and sauce over pork medallions and enjoy.
