Do you have recipes pinned from quite a while ago that you just haven’t tried yet? I know I do and I really need to do a little purging on my board, but it’s hard. This honey butter pork loin from Momma Hen’s Kitchen is one I pinned quite a while ago and finally tried it. Why did I wait so long? This is an easy and tasty main dish that can be made in the oven like the original or in the slow cooker like I did.
4 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. honey
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/2 tsp. seasoning of your choice (I used Penzey’s Salt Free Mural of Flavor)
1/2 tsp. black pepper
3/4 cup water
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter with the honey. Season the meat with the Mural of Flavor and black pepper. Brown the loin on all sides to form a nice crust.
Place the pork in a slow cooker and pour the honey/butter mixture over the meat along with 3/4 cup water. Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours until the meat is tender and registers at least 160 degrees.
