Butterfly the tenderloin. Lay the tenderloin vertically on your cutting board. Using a sharp knife, begin cutting the tenderloin in a horizontal motion about thick.

Reduce until almost all liquid has evaporated. Add broth and and . Return tenderloins to pan and place in preheated oven for 15- 18 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
