Process (Meat)
  1. Preheat oven to 425°.

  3. Roast for 40-45 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). 
  4. Remove roast from oven and tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
Process (Chutney)
  1. Cut the pomegranate in half. Working over a small bowl and using a small spoon, separate pomegranate seeds from membranes, placing seeds in bowl and discarding membranes. 
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add apple and shallots; cook and stir for 8-10 minutes or until tender. 
  3. Add ginger and garlic, and cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat. 
  4. Add sugar, brandy, vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and allow it to simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened. 
  5. Stir in pomegranate seeds and heat through. Serve with roast.
