A honey glaze may sound like something that goes with dessert, but mild-tasting pork loves a sweet sauce too, especially one that has a few savory elements in it for contrast. In this recipe, you’ll be folding an extra-large drizzle of honey into a rich, savory pan sauce, then spooning it onto pork tenderloin (and the roasted potatoes and broccoli served alongside, if you like).

• Adjust racks to top and middle positions and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Roast on top rack, tossing halfway through, until lightly browned and tender, 20-25 minutes.
• Meanwhile, pat pork* dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add pork and sear, turning occasionally, until browned all over, 4-8 minutes. • While pork cooks, peel and mince half the garlic (mince all for 4 servings). Once browned, transfer pork to one side of a second baking sheet.
• Cut broccoli florets into bite-size pieces if necessary. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper on opposite side of baking sheet from pork.
• Transfer sheet with pork and broccoli to middle rack. Roast until pork is cooked through and broccoli is tender, 12-15 minutes. • Once pork is done, transfer to a cutting board to rest. Thinly slice crosswise.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for pork over medium heat. Add minced garlic and thyme; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Stir in stock concentrates, honey, and ¼ cup water (1/3 cup for 4 servings). Simmer, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan, until sauce has reduced and thickened, 2-3 minutes. • Stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) until melted. Season with salt and pepper. TIP: If sauce seems too thick, stir in a splash or two of water.
• Divide pork, broccoli, and potatoes between plates. Drizzle pork with sauce and serve.
