Peachy Pork Medallions

This isn't really a fun presentation type food, but it really pleased my two-year old this week. She gobbled it up and kept asking for more. That is a rare thing. Plus it is from Parenting magazine, so I think it counts as a kid food, right?! Oh, and it is super fast to make, so that's gotta be a mommy-pleaser!

1 lb pork tenderloin, cut into 8 slices, flattened to 1/4 inch thick
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
8 slices (1/2 inch thick) precooked polenta
2 tsp olive oil
2 2/3 cups sliced peaches
1/4 cup reduced-sodium, fat-free chicken broth
6 Tbs seedless raspberry all-fruit spread
1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp ground ginger

1. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and set on medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper, and sauté 2 minutes on each side; remove from pan and cover with foil to keep warm.

2. Brush polenta slices with oil. Cook in skillet on medium-high heat, 3 to 4 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Remove and set aside. Reduce heat to medium and cook peach slices, stirring frequently, until barely tender.

3. Add broth to peaches and bring to a simmer, stirring regularly. Add preserves, vinegar, and ginger. Stir until preserves melt.

4. Serve pork, drizzled with sauce, with peaches and polenta.
