It’s been a while since I posted a recipe, so let me share last night’s dinner. I had planned to serve a few slices of these turkey tenderloins over a bed of sautéed spinach, lightly drizzled with a glaze and a side of tarragon pear rice. Unfortunately the fresh spinach at the supermarket didn’t look so… fresh, and my turkey tenderloins were ready to be cooked. So today I skipped the spinach and the glaze… Hopefully next time, the spinach will look better and it’ll have a nice picture to update this post.

Apple Smoked Turkey Tenderloin

Apple Smoked Turkey Tenderloin

2 turkey tenderloins, 4 c. sparkling apple cider, 1/3 c. honey, 1/8 c. smoke flavoring, 1 Tbsp. chopped sage, 1 small shallot minced, 1 tsp. powdered garlic, fresh ground sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper

Put tenderloins in zipper bag and set aside. Mix together remaining ingredients. Pour marinade in zipper bag over turkey tenderloins, cover and refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place tenderloins and marinade in casserole dish. Insert meat thermometer in the thickest part of the meat. Place in oven and bake for about 40 minutes or until meat thermometer reaches 165°F. Cover and let rest before serving.

*This is also fantastic grilled.
