Garlic Parmesan Crusted Pork Medallions

Garlic Parmesan Crusted Pork Medallions

Garlic Parmesan Crusted Pork MedallionsIf anyone has gone to a Brazilian steakhouse, they know that they serve a lot more than steak. One of my favorite items that’s often on the

menu is the hunks of pork, covered in garlic and Parmesan.  I’m sure there is an official name for it, but you get the point.  Wanting something like this, we decided to bust out the air fryer and see if we could replicate it.  I think we did a pretty good job, it almost tastes breaded, and it’s low carb, and very easy to make!  Pair it with my Freshly Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad for a delicious combination.

I would love to know what you all think of this recipe.  Do any of you own an airfryer?  It’s so easy to cook with, doesn’t heat up the house unlike my oven, and I’ve been able to cook so much with it!  Stay tuned, air-fryer recipes to come.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Lb Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 c parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
    • this is optional

To begin, cut the pork into 1 oz pieces, or chunks.

In a large bowl add coat the tenderloin in garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes and let marinate in the fridge for 30 mins.

 

Once time has elapse, evenly coat with Parmesan cheese.

Set your airfryer 350 for and cook for 15 mins.
