This was very delicious. I really like the sauce but doesn't thicken too well.

Yummy! I halved the black pepper and added cayenne... ouch!
Hi Eddie 21 Jun
I’ll give it 5-stars even though I over reduced the sauce at the end, causing the butter to clarify and the honey to turn into a sweet and spicy tar like substance. However, the tenderloin was outstanding and would have even been more outstanding had I paid more attention when reducing the sauce. The recipe was easy and qiuck to prepare. It’s a sure keeper.

I love this recipe but any tips on how to prevent the butter/honey from burning? I also skip making the spice mix and use Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning. It makes the recipe super fast and easy to prepare for a weeknight dinner.
