      Totally delish! I made this as stated, except I added about a teaspoon of chipotle pepper powder to the salt and pepper used to season the pork on half of it (left one half as is). That added a nice zing to the recipe for us. Both sides were wonderful - the spicier and the sweeter ones were succulent, tender, moist, and delicious. You do have to monitor the heat to make sure the butter and honey don't burn, but this an outstanding recipe, whether you add a zingier spice or not. We're going to freeze the leftovers to make a stew, and we just know it's going to be superb, because the orignal dish was. Great dish, CC - thank you!

      I just made this tonight and it was FABULOUS!
      I had a 2 lb Pork Tenderloin (two long, skinny pieces) & cut them up into 3" - 4" pieces so each diner would have his own and to insure the ends would not cook too quickly.
      Well ~ after browning the pieces for 5 minutes on each side (there were 5), I tested one and, it was PERFECT!
      NOT RED .... succulent and PERFECT ....
      So, I just removed & covered the pork while I made the sauce in my LeCreuset according to the directions ...
      This dish is a KEEPER!!
      Could NOT be easier!
      Thanks so much!

      Very good! Tender and moist with great flavor! Will definitely make again. I sprinkled each side with fresh cracked black pepper, chiptole pepper and a little garlic salt. I also added a little minced garlic to the butter and honey.
