Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh sage
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  • 2 teaspoons minced lemon zest

  • 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and silverskin, sliced into 2 1/2 inch thick medallions
  • Olive oil
  • Black pepper
  • 4 slices prosciutto, folded in half horizontally

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grates with oil.

For the sauce, combine 1/3 cup oil, lemon juice, sage, rosemary, garlic, and zest; season with salt and pepper flakes. Pour sauce into a shallow dish.

For the pork, coat medallions with oil; season with salt and black pepper. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each medallion and secure with kitchen string.

Grill medallions, covered, until they reach a temperature of 145 degrees, about 5 minutes per side.

Transfer medallions to prepared dish, flip in sauce, and let rest 3-4 minutes, flipping frequently. Remove kitchen strings from medallions and serve with sauce.
