Grilled Turkey Tenderloin
The marinade for this simple recipe is a nice blend of sweet and spicy. Serve the tenderloin with a mixed fruit salad and some toasted garlic bread.
Serves: 4Hands-on: 10 minutesTotal: 30 minutesDifficulty: Easy
- 1 lb. turkey tenderloin
- ½ cup orange juice
- 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
- ¼ cup honey
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ tsp. salt
- ⅛ tsp. ground black pepper
- Prepare and preheat grill. Butterfly the tenderloin by cutting it in half lengthwise, being careful not to cut all the way through. Stop about 1 inch from the other side. Spread the tenderloin open, cover it with plastic wrap, and pound gently with a meat mallet or rolling pin to flatten.
- For marinade, combine remaining ingredients in a large resealable plastic bag. Add the turkey, close the bag, and knead the bag, pressing the marinade into the turkey. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
- Cook turkey about 6 inches above medium-hot coals for 5 minutes; brush with any leftover marinade. Turn turkey and cook for 4–6 minutes on second side, until thoroughly cooked. Discard any remaining marinade. Serve immediately.
