HealthPerks Recipe: Turkey Tenderloin with Cranberry-Shallots Sauce

Turkey Tenderloin with Cranberry-Shallots Sauce

 

Ingredients

  • 2 turkey tenderloins (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 4 shallots, peeled and quartered
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen (not thawed) cranberries
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fruit-flavored vinegar, such as raspberry or pomegranate

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Sprinkle tenderloins with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey and cook, turning to brown all sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to a baking sheet. Toast until an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F, 15-25 minutes (depending on the sizes).
  3. Meanwhile, add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 3 minutes. Add thyme and cook until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add broth and cook, scraping up any browned bits, for 1 minute. Stir in fresh and dried cranberries and cook until most of the fresh cranberries have broken down, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir brown sugar, vinegar and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt into the sauce; cook for 1 minute. Cover and remove from the heat.
  4. Let the turkey rest on a clean cutting board for 5 minutes. Thinly slice; serve with the sauce.
