Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

So the other day we were out working on the new chicken coop (ok, let’s be honest, I was just sitting there watching while D worked on the coop lol. Time got away from us and while I knew I had some pork tenderloin in the fridge, I had no idea what to do with it. We have our usual “go-to” recipes for pork that we love, but I wanted something different.

Enter In Artificial Intelligence

I did the unthinkable! I opened my browser to ChatGPT and I offered up a list of the ingredients I had on hand and what we felt like we wanted to achieve. We wanted something sweet, and warm and flavorful. I asked that it create a recipe for our dinner based on these preferences. 

The Result?

I was quite skeptical that it would produce anything even remotely good. But boy was I wrong. This recipe was shockingly delicious and it was everything we asked for. Sweet, warm, flavorful, and overall incredible. We were floored! Give it a shot, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 

~Happy Baking~

Course Main Course
Servings 2 People


  • 1 Pork Tenderloin (about 1.5 lbs)
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Cumin
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 Lbs Carrots peeled and cut into sticks
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Fresh Parsley or Chives (optional, for garnish)


  • Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃)
  • In a small bowl, mix together the honey, worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground cumin, salt, and pepper to create the glaze.
  • Place the pork tenderloin in a shallow dish or a plastic bag and pour half the glaze over it. Make sure the pork is evenly coated. Reserve the other half of the glaze for later.
  • Let the pork marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours.
  • Meanwhile, toss the carrot sticks with olive oil, salt and pepper on a baking skeet.
  • Roast the carrots for 25 minutes, or until they are tender and slightly caramelized, stirring halfway through.
  • While carrots are roasting, heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil or tallow to the pan.
  • Remove the pork tenderloin from the marinade and discard the excess marinade. Place the pork in the skillet and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side, until browned.
  • Transfer pork to a baking dish lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Brush the remaining honey glaze over the pork.
  • Roast the pork in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 145℉ (63℃)
  • Remove pork from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve the sliced pork medallions with the roasted carrots, garnish with fresh parsley or chives. Enjoy!


  • It is highly recommended to use a meat thermometer for this recipe to ensure you get a juicy and perfectly cooked tenderloin. I highly recommend a probe-style one such as this ThermoPro Tp-16 Meat Thermometer.
