Instructions Checklist
  • Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat, and simmer 40 minutes or until mixture is reduced to about 1 1/2 cups. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a large bowl, reserving vegetables; cover broth reduction mixture, and chill, if desired.

  • Process reserved vegetables in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides; cover and chill, if desired.

  • Stir together chutney and next 3 ingredients. Spread half of chutney mixture evenly over tenderloin. Place tenderloin on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.

Bake 10 to 20 more minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 145° (medium-rare) to 160° (medium). Remove from pan, and let stand 15 minutes before slicing. Remove rack from pan.
