HONEY PAPRIKA PORK TENDERLOIN–Pork tenderloin is seared then roasted to perfection and topped with a sweet and savory sauce made with garlic, honey, paprika and chicken broth.
Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite cuts of meat, and this Honey Paprika Pork Tenderloin was a huge hit with my family!
The pork is rubbed with a mixture of both sweet and smoked paprika, which not only gives this dish amazing flavor, it gives it beautiful color as well.
If you don’t have smoked paprika, you can use just the regular sweet paprika, although I highly recommend picking up some smoked paprika. You will be amazed at how much flavor it adds to this dish.
The combination of sweet and smoky seasonings really is perfect, and makes this tenderloin stand out from other pork roast recipes.
Don’t skip the step of searing your pork tenderloin before roasting either. It’s quick and simple to do, but it adds so much color and flavor to this recipe.
One of the reasons I love pork tenderloin so much is that it’s so easy to prepare, and cooks so quickly. This cut of meat only requires about 15 minutes in the oven!
But even though it’s quick and simple to make, this is a dish that’s nice enough for company, or even for a holiday dinner.
The sauce for this tenderloin is really what makes this recipe special. The honey, garlic, red wine vinegar, broth and butter come together in a rich, flavorful sauce that’s the perfect accompaniment to the pork.
We almost always serve this pork with a side of roasted potatoes, but mashed potatoes or some roasted vegetables are also great options. And if you’re feeding a crowd, this recipe doubles very well.
If you’re looking for a new way to serve pork, my family highly recommends this Honey Paprika Pork Tenderloin. I hope you love it as much as we do.

- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 (1.5 lb.) pork tenderloin

- 2-3 cloves garlic, minded
- 1-2 teaspoons honey
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth

Who Dished It Up First: Adapted from Milk Street: Tuesday Nights
I’m about to make this but only have a 3lb pork sirloin roast with plenty of fat. Should I keep everything the same and just reduce the cooking time I’m in the crock pot? Or should I go the Dutch oven route? Thank you
I think you could go either way and it would work. I don’t know that I’d reduce the cooking time much, since your roast is actually larger than what is called for in the recipe. Honestly, you could use just about any cooking method for this, but your best bet is to use a meat thermometer to know when it’s done.
