    Method

    • Preheat oven to 180°C on a fan-forced function

    • In an oven-safe heavy frypan, heat oil or butter and honey over medium heat until browning but not burnt. Add the tenderloin and brown on all sides.
    • Transfer frypan to the oven and bake 10 more minutes. Allow to rest before carving into thick slices.
    • Serve with asparagus, rice or risotto.
