Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

This recipe was found at Momma Hen's Kitchen. I found there was more than enough meat for Geoff and I, so I just gave us our portion and saved the rest for a salad the next day for lunch.
I also served this with Mashed Faux-tatoes. I chopped up 1/2 head of cauliflower and put it in a pot with about 1/4 cup of water and some salt. I simmer/steamed it for about 15 minutes. Now this is just too long, and it was too mushy. I will get it right one day! LOL Then I added a bit of butter, a bit of heavy cream, 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, and some black pepper.

 Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

Yields: 3 Servings

4 tbsp butter
2 tbsp 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 in the honey butter. Lower heat if honey begins to burn.
Place pot in oven and roast uncovered 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.

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