Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

  I don’t have a clever intro for today’s recipe…lets just take a look at this pretty, pretty dinner.
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
  Start by setting your oven to preheat to 375 degrees.  Use an ovenproof pot to melt your honey and butter together over medium heat.  Season your pork with Cajun seasoning and pepper and brown it on each side for 5 minutes in the honey butter mixture.
  Place your pot into the oven and cook it (uncovered) for 15-20 minutes.  Check your pork to be certain it has reached a safe 145 degrees internally and remove it to a plate (cover it to keep it warm).  Add your water to the pot and return it to the stovetop over medium heat, stirring it to pick up the sauce on the bottom.  Allow to simmer for around 5 minutes and then serve over the sliced pork.
  I love a good, sweet-sauced pork dish and this one is no exception.  The pork stayed nice and juicy and was generally just delicious.  A fairly quick, easy meal and one I think we’ll be making again!
