Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

I found this recipe on pinterest a few years ago and it fast became my hubbys fave meal!

I find pork a bit bland to be honest unless its pulled pork but this is soooo tasty! Its a bit of faffing with using the frying pan then baking but its so worth it!

I serve it with white wine and mustard roast potatoes. They are super easy just par boil some new potatoes in the skin then drain and add a dash of white wine and a couple tablespoons of dijon mustard. Toss the potatoes and make sure they are all covered and then roast until golden! They are yummy and a nice twist on ordinary roast potatoes. I also serve with green beans.

So heres the pork recipe from Momma Hen's Kitchen

Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin -

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 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.

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