This is one of those meals where I kept making each bite smaller and smaller just so I could savor it a little while longer. Only six ingredients—that’s all you need sometimes.
CAJUN HONEY PORK TENDERLOIN
- 1½ lbs pork tenderloin
- 4 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
- 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- ¼ cup water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a oven-safe pot, melt butter and honey over medium-high heat and whisk together. While melting, season pork with Cajun seasoning and pepper. Sear tenderloin in pot, browning all sides, about 5 minutes. When done, place whole pot to roast in oven, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to rest on a cutting board, covered loosely with foil. While resting, add water to pot juices. Scrape up browned bits and reduce over medium-high heat, whisking until slightly thickened.
Serve sliced with sauce spooned over along side your favorite grain.
Makes 4 servings. Enjoy!
