Doesn’t that meat just look delicious?!  This company-worthy meal looks too good to be so simple.  Believe it or not, this recipe requires only 5 ingredients and about half an hour.  If you’re having family over for lunch on Easter, this would be a great dish to serve your guests!  It’s simple enough for you to not have to worry about it while you focus more on your deviled eggs and casseroles :-).

I really enjoyed this tenderloin.  It was tender and juicy, and the honey butter made a tasty glaze for the meat.  I do, however, wish that the cajun seasoning and pepper could have come through in the flavor more.  I actually don’t like spicy foods, so it’s not that I wanted it to be spicy.  It’s just that I couldn’t really taste the seasonings much at all.  I think I’d add a bit more next time.  The recipe below is the original one, and you can choose to keep it the same or add more if you like!

Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

Yields: 6 servings

Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin


  • 4 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. Place pot in oven and roast uncovered for 20-30 minutes. (May need to cook longer depending on the size and thickness of the pork tenderloin.)
  4. 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.  Drizzle sauce over meat to serve.
