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!
- 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
- 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 20-30 minutes. (May need to cook longer depending on the size and thickness of the pork tenderloin.)
- 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.
