Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

I love pork. Especially tenderloin and chops. So when I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest, I know I just HAD to try it! It sounded delicious, the picture looked delicious, and I just knew it'd go over well in my house.

 I coupled this recipe with a side dish for Loaded Mashed Potatoes, which I will give you the recipe in another post.

(Not my picture or my original recipe. To view original click on the title)

4 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp Honey
1 1/2 lbs. pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp. black pepper
3/4 c. water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 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.

I just know this recipe is going to be used again and again. It came out SO delicious!
