Some of the chain grocery store carry packages of raw turkey tenderloins in the fresh meat area near the ground turkey and turkey sausage. I look for the kind that is unseasoned. I was very happy when my local farm store owners offered to save the loins for me when they processed their turkeys.
The loins were each perfect sizes for a meal-about 6 ounces of raw meat. I was especially grateful to my Working H Farm friends for these special cuts of grass fed free range turkey tenderloins.
Roasting Turkey Tenderloins
- Rinse the raw tenderloin with cold water.
- Season with a no salt seasoning blend. I use a lemon-pepper blend.
- Roast in a 325 F. oven until internal temperature reaches 165 F. Using a thermometer, take the temperature of the loin after 30 minutes of roasting. Repeat every 15 minutes until the temperature reaches 165.
- Slice thinly. I use an electric knife.
Roasted Turkey Tenderloin meals served hot are comparable to holiday turkey meals without the fuss. That's Fig Glazed Turkey Tenderloin with Cornbread Stuffing above and Roasted Turkey Tenderloin with Pesto Baked Potato below.
