Honey-Cajun Pork Tenderloin

Move over chicken breast! There’s a new star in town!

4 T butter 
2 T honey
1 ½ lbs. pork tenderloin
½ tsp Cajun seasoning
¾ cup water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large pan, heat butter and honey over medium heat until melted. Rub pork with Cajun seasnoning until completely coated. Brown pork in pan, about 5 minutes per side.
Transfer pork to roasting dish and bake for 10-20 minutes (depending on the thickness of the cut; use a meat thermometer to cook until thickest section reads 170 degrees). Meanwhile, add ¾ cup water to hot pan. Stir and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove pork and cover with foil to rest about 5 minutes. Slice pork on the bias and drizzle with sauce to serve.
