Yield: 4


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In an ovenproof pot ( I used a Dutch Oven) heat honey and butter over medium heat until melted.
  3. Sprinkle pork tenderloin with Cajun Seasoning and black pepper. Brown each side of the tenderloin for 5 minutes in the honey butter. You may have to lower the heat if the honey begins to burn.
  4. Place the pot in the oven and roast uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the tenderloin from the oven and place on a plate. Cover with foil.
  6. Add the water to the pan and stir over medium heat to make the sauce. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
  7. Slice the tenderloin diagonally and serve with the sauce spooned over the top of the tenderloin.
