  • Cut pork into 1/2-inch slices; season with salt and pepper to taste. Press half the sesame seeds onto one side of each medallion. Melt butter in 12-inch saute pan. Cook pork, seed side down, over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. While cooking, press remaining sesame seeds onto tops of medallions. Turn over and continue to cook 4-6 minutes. Increase heat to high, add sauce and cook 2 minutes or until sauce bubbles and thickens slightly. Serve pork medallions drizzled with sake sauce. Sprinkle with any remaining sesame seeds and green onion.

It was OK. Sesame seeds did stick which I was a little worried about. I always make extra sauce but I found it was not needed in this dish. Loved the green onions. Read More
