How to Make Delicious Pork Loin

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    In an ovenproof skillet or dutch oven , stir butter and honey over medium heat, until butter is melted.
  2. Remove any silver skin from the loin.
  3. Liberally sprinkle loin with cayenne pepper, Cajun seasoning and pepper.
  4. Brown each side of the loin for about 5 minutes in the honey butter. Making sure not to burn the honey.

    Lower the heat if honey begins to burn.
  5. Now, place the skillet in the oven, uncovered for 25 - 30 minutes or until pork is no longer pink. Do not over cook.

    Simmer for about 5 minutes, until sauce is reduced and thickening. ( sauce will be an auburn color )
  8. Now, slice your pork, and drizzle with the sauce.


    Enjoy!! It's delicious!!!
