  2. Heat oil until it is shimmering, using a heavy bottom, large skillet. Do this over a medium-high heat, swirling to cover entire pan. Working in batches of 6, sear medallions for 80 seconds. Do not move them around turning that time.
  3. Using tongs, flip the medallions. cook for another 80 seconds. Meat should be seared. Transfer to a plate and reserve dripping for sauces.
