Honey-butter pork tenderloin Easy Food
Serves 4
60g butter
2 tbsp honey
600g pork tenderloin, trimmed
Salt and black pepper
60ml chicken stock
1 tsp thyme leaves

To serve:
Mashed potato
  1. Preheat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/gas mark 5.
  2. In an ovenproof casserole dish, melt the butter and honey together over a medium heat, stirring.
  3. Season the pork with salt and black pepper. Add to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes per side until lightly browned all over.
  4. Transfer the casserole dish to the oven and roast for 8-10 minutes until the pork is just cooked through. Transfer to a plate and tent loosely with tin foil.
  5. Place the dish back over a medium-high heat. Add the stock and thyme and allow to bubble for 2-3 minutes, using a wooden spoon to scrape up all the browned bits from the bottom.
  6. Add any juices that have been released by the pork juices onto the plate. Simmer for 3-4 minutes until slightly reduced.
  7. Slice the pork on the diagonal. Serve with creamy mashed potatoes and drizzle with the honey-butter sauce.
