Easy Pork Sliders

I am delighted to welcome Marla from Organic Life On A Budget to our contributing team.  What a way to make her entrance with these delicious Pork Sliders!  

I developed this recipe for Pork Sliders when trying to think of a new type of Easter dinner.

I don’t know about you, but in my family we always like trying something new with our holiday dinners, and Easter is no exception.  Several years ago we broke away from the traditional ham and deviled eggs, and started a tradition of trying a new meal at each holiday.

I thought this Easter would be a great time to try these Pork Sliders alongside Roasted Potato Salad.  This is a budget-friendly, healthier alternative to the traditional ham dinner.

These Pork Sliders are so quick and easy to prepare.  You just sear the medallions, then pop them in the oven to finish cooking.

I use a large baking sheet, that would easily fit 30+ medallions, which allows this recipe to be easily adaptable. You can make it for a small group or you can feed an army without spending much more time in the kitchen.

The holidays are all about family and coming together for a nice meal, and Easter is no different. This meal makes it easy to entertain without spending all of your time in the kitchen.

Assembling the sliders is so easy.  I always serve these with homemade roasted garlic gravy, it is all you need, but leave extra for dipping!

On the side, I like to serve a Roasted Potato Salad.  The potato salad is such a simple, yet delicious homemade dish that nicely complements the pork.  Roasting the potatoes gives them such a rich flavor, that all you have to do is toss them in olive oil and add a few chives, then you have a perfect side dish.

So whether you are feeding just yourself, or if you have all the relatives coming for Easter dinner…give these Pork Sliders and Roasted Potato Salad a try.

You will spend less time in the kitchen, and everyone will be so pleased with such an unexpected, delicious dish!

Ingredients

  • Pork Sliders:
  • 2 lb Pork Tenderloin
  • 10 Fresh Made Dinner Rolls or Small Buns
  • Roasted Garlic Gravy
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Roasted Potato Salad:
  • 3 lb Red Potatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 bunch Chives, chopped
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder

Instructions

Pork Sliders:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Slice the pork tenderloin into 1/2 inch round pieces, season both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.

In a skillet over medium heat, place about 6 pieces. You are just going to sear the outside of the medallion then place it in the oven. Once you place the pork in the skillet, sear about 1 minute, then slip to other side, sear about 1 minute, then place on a large baking sheet. Repeat until all pork has been seared.

Place the baking sheet of pork medallions into the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes, until the pork is no longer pink in the middle.

Place pork medallions on buns and top with Roasted Garlic Gravy.

Roasted Potato Salad:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Toss potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste, place on a baking sheet and cook in oven about 30-45 minutes, turning about halfway through, until potatoes are tender.

Remove potatoes from oven, allow to cool, then toss with olive oil, salt and chives to taste.

    I love this idea, it is different enough to give variety but easy enough not to warrant time spent in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness link party 🙂
