Spicy Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

I wouldn’t mind having this instead of turkey or ham for the holidays. Serves 4 Total Time: approximately 35 minutes. (Depends on your preferred doneness)
Just make sure the internal temperature reaches at least 145 degrees for medium rare.


4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 lbs Pork Tenderloin, trimmed
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cups water


Preheat oven to 375F. In a large sauté pan melt the butter and add the honey. Keep heat low enough so the honey doesn’t burn. Rub the Cajun seasoning and the pepper on all sides of the pork tenderloin. Brown each side for at least 5 minutes. Place the pan in the oven uncovered for at least 15 minutes or until your desired temperature (see above). Remove pork to a plate and cover with foil. Add water to the pan and scrape all the brown bits from the bottom. Cook over medium heat until the liquid reduces slightly. Stir occasionally. Slice pork on the diagonal and drizzle with the sauce. Serve immediately. Yum Yum!
