PORK MEDALLIONS WITH CHERRY SAUCE

1 pound pork tenderloin

Nonstick spray coating

3/4 cup cranberry juice or apple juice

2 tsp spicy brown mustard

1 tsp cornstarch

1 cup sweet cherries (such as Rainier or Bing), halved and pitted, OR 1 cup frozen unsweetened pitted dark sweet cherries, thawed 

Trim fat from pork.  Cut pork crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices.  Place each slice between 2 pieces of plastic wrap.  With the heel of your hand, press each slice into a 1/2-inch-thick medallion.  Remove plastic wrap.  Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

Spray an unheated large nonstick skillet with nonstick coating.  Heat skillet over medium-high heat.  Add pork; cook about 6 minutes or until juices run clear, turning once.  Transfer to a serving platter; keep warm.

Combine cranberry juice, mustard, and cornstarch; add to skillet.  Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.  Cook and stir for 2 minutes more.  Stir cherries into mixture in skillet.  Serve over pork.
