I thought this was awful I had some lovely pork medallions to use too.. I don't think I did anything wrong but felt that there was too much stock. I will not be trying this again, but if I did I would make the sauce thicker. Also I didn't like the onions in quarters it looked wrong.

Made this a few times now. Substituted tenderloin for pork steaks sliced up and bashed thinner. Have also used redcurrant jelly instead of cranberry and was still lovely but didn't need the honey
