  5. Using a paring knife, remove fig stem and base, then cut fruit in half. Set aside.
  6. Preheat oven to broil and place rack in middle position.
  7. In a skillet, heat oil over high heat and brown pork medallions on each side.
  8. Place medallions on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Put a piece of fig and an equal amount of cheese on each medallion.
