Combine the honey, mustard, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon coarsely cracked pepper in a resealable food storage bag. Add the pork medallions and turn to coat. Let stand 30 minutes.

Remove the pork from the marinade and dip both sides into the crushed pretzels to coat.


Heat the remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, until internal temperature reaches 155 degrees on a meat thermometer.


Makes 3 to 4 servings.
