You Asked for It: Spiced Pork Tenderloin With Apple Chutney

I have misplaced a recipe for pork tenderloin with make-ahead chutney. It was from the October 1994 issue of Bon Appétit magazine. Does anyone have the recipe? Thank you.

Pat Simkus, Brandon

Monica Gummer of Homosassa shares the recipe from Bon Appétit. When Pat sent her request, she mentioned it was an easy and quick meal. She was right. It's delicious too. There are so many flavors from all the spices in both the pork marinade and chutney. There are many different spices but they all work well together. The flavors do not compete but rather complement. The chutney is a nice accompaniment with tender peppers, apples and currants.

Recipe request

Val Sommerville of New Port Richey would like the grilled roast beef sandwich from the former Ollie's restaurant in St. Petersburg. Val says it's the best you would ever eat and she hopes someone has the recipe.
