Pork Tenderloin with Honey-Goat Cheese Sauce

(SAUCE ADAPTED FROM HALF BAKED HARVEST)
Ingredients: 
  • ~1lb pork tenderloin
  • Salt & pepper
  • 6oz goat cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 tsp Aleppo pepper
Instructions: 
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Season all sides of the tenderloin with salt and pepper. Sear all sides in a cast iron skillet over high heat for just 1-2 minutes on each side.
  2. Once the tenderloin is seared, move it in the skillet to the hot oven for ~15 minutes. (You want an internal temperature of 145 degrees, at minimum.)
  3. Whisk together the remaining ingredients (or combine in food processor). Heat in a small saucepan over low heat while the pork is cooking.
  4. Allow the pork to rest for ~5 minutes before slicing. (If you prefer pork on the medium-rare side, remove it at an internal temp of 135-140, since it will cook a little more while resting.) Serve with sauce on top!
