Pork Medallions Topped with Goat Cheese and Apple Raisin Cinnamon Compote
Coat the pork medallions with flour mixture, shaking off excess. Heat canola oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet and sear the pork on both sides until crust turns golden brown, about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove to a warm place and let rest. Pour off most of the oil from skillet, leaving only a coating. Add the apples and raisins and saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the veal stock and cinnamon. Swirl butter into the apple mixture to make a sweet and savory apple compote. Spoon some apple compote into the center of each of 6 plates. Place 2 pork medallions on top of apples, and spoon a little more compote on top of pork. Crumble cheese and place on top of apples so their warmth slowly melts the cheese and then serve.
