4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 pounds of pork tenderloin, trimmed of silver skin
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1/4 cup water


  1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a Dutch oven or ovenproof skillet,
    Heat butter and honey over medium heat, stirring to melt butter.
    Season pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper on
    both sides and place in pan.  Cook until underside is lightly browned,
    about 5 minutes.  Turn pork, and cook until other side is browned,
    about 5 minutes more.  Lower the heat if the honey begins to burn.

  2.   Place pan in the preheated oven, and roast until pork is just cooked
    through, 7 to 10 minutes. For medium rare pork cook until a meat
    thermometer registers 140 degrees. Transfer pork to a plate and
    cover with aluminum foil.

  3.   Add water to the pan, and stir over medium heat to scrape up all
    the brown bits.  Add any accumulated pork juices from the plate and
    simmer until sauce is reduced to about 1/2 cup. Taste and season
    with salt and pepper if needed.  Slice pork on the diagonal, and
    serve drizzled with sauce.
