Pork Tenderloin with Honey Butter

I found this recipe on marthastewart.com in 2003 and have been enjoying it ever since. It was the center piece to dinner last night.

Ingredients: 4 tablespoon butter, 2 tablespoon honey, 1-1/2 lb. pork tenderloin, 1/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a dutch oven or ovenproof skillet, heat butter and honey over medium-low heat, stirring to melt butter. Season pork with salt and pepper and place in pan. Cook until browned lightly on all sides, about 10-12 minutes.

Transfer to oven and roast until pork is cooked to 145 degrees, 12-15 minutes. I roast mine until 155 degrees usually takes closer to 20 minutes. Use your own judgement. Transfer pork to a plate and cover with foil.

Add water to pan and place on stove over medium heat, cook stirring with a wooden spoon to scrape up all the browned bits. Add any accumulated pork juices from the plate and simmer until the sauce is reduced to about 1/2 cup. Slice pork on the diagonal and serve drizzled with the sauce.
