Red Pepper and Parmesan Crusted Pork Medalllions

Finely ground seasoning blend of crushed red pepper flakes, rosemary and parmesan crusted pork medallions topped with sautéed mushrooms and shallots.

TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST RED PEPPER AND PARMESAN CRUSTED PORK MEDALLIONS:

finely crush your red pepper flakes: whether its a coffee/ spice grinder or a blender run your crushed red pepper flakes till its a fine powder. that way it’ll keep the red pepper from burning once its time to sear the pork.

open a window: surprisingly once this blend makes contact with the heat its not too harsh like some other recipes i’ve done. the problem is when blending that fine dust kicking up and may result in a couple of sneezes.

make a even blend: crush red pepper and rosemary burn at high heat when its making contact so make sure they are both finely ground so it cookes evenly

if the heat gets away from you: this dish finishes itself up in the oven really so i can keep the process moving since i sliced up a pork tenderloin. but it you heat it too high and you pork starts to burn just flip it to the over side get the sear and finish it in the oven.
