– TURKEY TENDERLOIN – 1.5 pound turkey tenderloin you could use pork if you can’t find turkey tenderloin – 2 tablespoons olive oil divided – 2 teaspoons salt divided – 2 teaspoons pepper divided – 2 teaspoons sweet paprika – dried herbs I have a combo of rosemary and sage, but either one alone would work – APPLE AND ONION SAUCE – 1 large sweet onion peeled and sliced 1/4″ thick – 2 medium apples cored, peeled and sliced 1/4″ thick – 1/2 cup apple sauce – 1 cup chicken stock I used my own homemade that was low-sodium. Store bought is fine as long as low-sodium – 2 Tablespoons coconut aminos – 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar – fresh sage you could use rosemary or thyme
Cook time: 40 min
How long should I marinate my turkey breast tenderloin? The tenderloin will be more flavorful the more time you marinate it. Most often I try plan and marinate it overnight. Sometimes I forget and remember in morning, so 6 hours is enough. But truly overnight is ideal. Last minute is fine, too! Sometimes I put the marinate together 30 minutes-1 hour before and the tenderloin still comes out tender and delicious. Because of the acid of the vinegar, I wouldn’t marinade it for more than 2 days. But for this recipe, I really like marinating 8 hours for a really moist and tasty tenderloin.
How do you make Paleo and Whole30 turkey tenderloin with apples and onions? I start by marinating the tenderloin with olive oil, seasoning and some dried herbs. It really could be left to marinate overnight or even right before cooking (sometimes I forget to marinate it and put it together even 30 minutes before). Can I make turkey tenderloin recipe with pork instead? Yes! I know it’s hard to find turkey tenderloin in every market. If you really want to make this and can’t find turkey, sub in pork tenderloin. IF using pork: Bake at 350F until pork is 150 degrees internally at the widest part of the tenderloin (about 25 minutes.)
