Pack firmly.

With string, tie each loin securely in several places to hold cut edges of meat securely.

Preheat broiler.

Place both tenderloins, cut side up on rack in broiling pan.

Broil 15 minutes. If necessary, cover stuffing with foil to keep from browning and drying out.

Carefully turn tenderloins, cut side down, and broil 15 minutes longer for rare or until desired doneness.

Drain tomatoes; reserve liquid.

Finely chop tomatoes; set aside.

In 1-quart saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter.

Cook, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened.
