Honey Butter Pork Tenderloin

Pork is such a great choice for a weeknight meal. It is easy and quick to cook and there are endless ways to prepare it. All you need is to cook up a nice pork tenderloin, add some vegetables to the side and you have a delicious and easy weeknight dinner. This honey butter glaze is sweet and keeps the pork juicy and flavorful.

Recipe yields 4-5 servings

1 1/2 lbs pork tenderloin
4 tbsp unsalted butter
3 tbsp honey
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine your spices. Using your hands, rub the spice onto your meat and set aside to let it soak in.

In a large pot (I used my Dutch oven because it needs to be able to go from stove top to oven) melt your butter and honey.

Once melted, add your meat to the pot to brown on all sides. You are looking to get a nice browned, glaze on all sides of your meat.

Once browned, pop it in the oven for 20-25 minutes. The insides should no longer be pink when it is ready to eat.

Remove from the oven and let the meat rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting it. Slice it thin and arrange on a serving platter. Enjoy!
