- Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Cut tenderloin into 1-inch slices. Sprinkle with pepper. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork slices and cook for 2-4 minutes or until brown, turning once. Transfer pork slices to baking sheet.
- Mix together blue cheese, 3 tbs chives and bread crumbs in small bowl, breaking large pieces of cheese into fine crumbs.
- Top pork slices evenly with cheese mixture. Bake in heated oven for 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature is 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time. Serve with Creamy Chive Sauce (instructions follow), if desired.
- Creamy Chive Sauce: For a quick, easy sauce, while the medallions are baking, discard drippings from skillet; wipe skillet with paper towels. Add heavy cream to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-high heat until cream is reduced by half. Stir in 1 tsp chives. Spoon sauce onto each plate and arrange 3 medallions on top.
