Originally tonight I was going to make some tasty meatball submarines for dinner with breaded onion rings on the side. Then I realised to my horror….NO TOMATO sauce!!! So I scratched that and decided to use the pork medallions I was going to use later on in the week. After pondering for a while and surfing the internet for some ideas, I decided on this delicious dish!! It is totally toddler approved, as my daughter, licking her fingers after the first bite, showed me. Its really simple to make and very pleasing to the palate.
