Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine ginger, thyme, vinegar, bay leaf, clove, wine, and honey in a bowl and blend well. Place sliced pork in a dish and pour mixture over it. Marinate for 10 minutes.

Drain the pork medallions and pat dry. Reserve marinate. Place meat in a single layer in skillet in the hot oil. Cook for 5 minutes, turn and cook for 5 minutes more over medium high heat. Reduce heat and cook meat for 2 minutes more. Transfer meat to a dish and keep warm.
