Grilled Turkey Tenderloins

Turkey tenderloins are basically the chicken tender of a turkey breast

It is a strip of meat that is cut away from the breast that doesn’t get that much of a workout and remains very tender

Besides being tender they also work real well with a marinade (which means tasty!)

They are sometimes tricky to find in the meat section of your local supermarket so be sure to ask the butcher about them as they are really quite delicious

So let’s get started with the marinade

We will need 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, 1/8 cup of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard, 2 grated garlic cloves, 1 teaspoon each of kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, 2 fresh sprigs of oregano and 1 fresh sprig of rosemary

Remove the rosemary and oregano leaves from the stems (discard stems) and give the leaves a rough chop

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl

Whisk and set aside

Next, we have 2 turkey breast tenderloins which are roughly 1.5 pounds together

These were very well trimmed but if you have any excess fat or sinews then go ahead and remove them and discard

Add the turkey to a large resealable baggie one tenderloin at a time

Add half the marinade

Add in the other tenderloin and the rest of the marinade

Force the air out of the bag and seal

Squish the turkey and marinade around to ensure maximum coverage

Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight (even better)

Remove the tenderloins from the baggie and allow the turkey to come up to room temperature

Heat your grill to 400 F

I’m cooking over direct heat but not at a super hi temp so I have my 3 burners set to MLM which is Medium, Low, Medium

Place the turkey in the middle over the low heat

Cook for 4-5 minutes then turn (not flip)

20180626_190224

Cook another 4-5 minutes then flip

20180626_191230

Cook 4 minutes then turn and cook another 4 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 170 F

Remove to a cutting board and allow to rest at least 10 minutes before slicing

Once rested, slice thinly
