Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

03 Jun

We LOVE pork tenderloin in this house! My only complaint is that when I cook it in the oven, it ALWAYS takes longer to cook than the recipe says it will. Anyone else experience that problem? I mean….every.single.time. That’s why I usually use the crockpot for cooking it, but a couple weeks ago, I decided to give it another try! I’m glad I did! The recipe I used was delicious! It did cook about 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe suggested, but oh well!

We will definitely be making this again! SO GOOD!

Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

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.

    This is amazing! I cook the tenderloin in a pan in the butter and honey and then transfer it to a baking dish. I take the left over pan juices, add the water, and add a whole carton of mushrooms sliced and cook it down to a thick sauce. Superb!!
