Serves 6 | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time 25


2 teaspoons butter, divided
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lime juice
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons Chipotle mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 3/4-pound boneless pork tenderloins
Salt and black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Heat 1 teaspoon of the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Add onion, jalapeño and garlic; sauté until softened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add honey, lime juice, cilantro, mustard and soy sauce; reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until quite thick, about 7 minutes.

Rub tenderloins generously with salt and black pepper.

Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon butter in a medium ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the tenderloins and cook, turning, until well browned on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes.
