Honey-Butter Pork Loin

modified from http://mommahenskitchen.blogspot.com/2010/09/honey-butter-pork-tenderloin.html

4 tbs butter
2 tbs honey
chopped garlic (about 3 cloves? I didn’t measure exactly)
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
3/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat butter and honey over medium heat in a large skillet until melted. Brown each side of the pork for 5 minutes in the honey butter.  Lower heat if honey begins to burn.
Place pork in a baking dish and stick it in the oven. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. While pork is roasting, add water to the honey/butter/garlic mixture in the skillet and stir over medium heat.  Simmer for about 5 minutes, until sauce is reduced slightly.  Slice pork on the diagonal and drizzle sauce over top to serve.
