Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

I LOVE pork tenderloin and here is another delicious recipe! The combination of sweet honey and spicy cajun seasoning is definitely a winner!


Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin
Recipe from Momma Hen's Kitchen

4 tbs butter
2 tbs honey
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In an ovenproof pot, heat butter and honey over medium heat until melted. Sprinkle pork tenderloin with Cajun seasoning and black pepper. Brown each side for 5 minutes. Lower heat if honey begins to burn.

Place pot in oven and roast for 15 - 20 minutes*. Remove pot from oven and transfer the pork to a plate. Cover with foil. Add water to the pot and stir over medium heat. Simmer for about 5 minutes, until sauce is reduced slightly. Slice pork on the diagonal and drizzle sauce over top to serve.

*NOTE: May need to cook longer depending on the size and thickness of the pork tenderloin.
