NOT UK PORK
NOT UK PORK
Excellent! Very tasty & super tender when cooked properly. Most negative reviews appear to be from people who do not know how to cook them. This product is NOT suitable for slow cooking as it is too lean. This cut of pork must be cooked quickly on a high heat to retain it's natural tenderness & succulence. Slow cooking will dry it out & make it tough. One review says that they are a bit too thick for medallions, that is true. Just bash them with a kitchen mallet or a rolling pin till they are the required thickness. This makes them even more tender. You can then season them, coat with breadcrumbs (Polish Prymat available at Tesco are great) & pan fry them in minutes. If you don't like them breaded just season & pan fry in minutes. A small pat of homemade garlic & herb butter added on top make them super tasty. Enjoy!
Succulent if shallow fried but NOT UK pork!
I used the four pieces for two separate dinners. The first one was a stir fry and the pork was slightly tough cooked in this way. However, I cooked the second dinner in the way it suggested on the pack, shallow fried for about ten minutes and it was really succulent. My only complaint, and one I'm about to tell Tesco about, is the fact I bought this pack believing it to be pork from the UK but on the pack, it stated the pork was reared in Holland and slaughtered in Germany.
Tasty and satisfying
Can't understand the negative reviews. The medallions arrived with a long use-by date. They were fresh and had no fat whatsoever. I flattened them to half the thickness, coated them in garlic breadcrumbs (home-made) and fried in a little rapeseed oil for 6 minutes each side. Result: tender and tasty. Will definitely buy again.
Not for quick frying.
I buy these regularly and cook in the slow cooker with a sauce. Very tender and tasty, especially with a Loyd Grossman sauce. Also use a tenderiser to flatten and coat in breadcrumbs and oven cook.
Tough and disappointing
Horrible!!!! Cooked these for a while in a cream a
Horrible!!!! Cooked these for a while in a cream and cider sauce then froze them. They were so chewy that they were wasted. I only ate the vegetables and sauce, the pork I threw away. Such a terrible waste. I will not buy them again!!!
Not as described
Far too thick to be described as medallions, no good for the stir fry I wanted them for. Won't buy again
Need to be put in a slow cooker??.
IMHO these were NOT medallions. far too thick, hence not cooked properly when following the cooking instructions on the packet. With the leftovers, I put them in a risotto and cooked them with the rice to try and get them porky-soft. Still no joy. Suggest you try something else.
