Roasted Pork Tenderloin w/Fennel, Carrots & Honey

This was inspired by my The New Best Recipe cookbook I have. I was looking for recipe ideas to prepare pork tenderloin and was inspired to try the following recipe which was initially for a pork loin roast. It worked extremely well with pork tenderloin just the same.

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Fennel, Carrots & Honey
recipe inspired by The New Best Recipe

2 whole pork tenderloins
1 bulb fennel
1 lb bag baby carrots
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons honey
salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut each pork tenderloin in half so you have 4 pieces; season with salt & pepper to taste and set aside.

Chop the fennel bulb into bite sized pieces and place in a baking dish with the baby carrots.

Add the melted butter and honey to the fennel and carrots; stir to combine. Season to taste.

Place the seasoned pork tenderloin over the vegetable mixture and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.

Serve warm.
