  • Trim fat from tenderloin. Lay bacon side by side on a work surface, overlapping slightly. Place tenderloin crosswise on bacon and roll up, wrapping bacon around tenderloin. Place, bacon ends down, on rack in the prepared roasting pan. Roast 20 minutes. Brush top of wrapped tenderloin with preserves mixture. Roast 5 to 10 minutes more or until bacon is crisp and an instant-read thermometer inserted in tenderloin registers 145 degrees F. Remove from oven; let stand 3 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add green beans; cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or just until crisp-tender. Add broth, honey and salt. Cook and stir about 3 minutes more or until liquid is nearly evaporated. Stir in almonds.

  • Slice wrapped tenderloin and serve with green beans.
