November/December 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (45 votes)

Turkey and cranberry sauce is delicious any time of year. To help keep this recipe fast, sear the tenderloins and get them in the oven first, then prep the shallots, thyme and cranberries and make your sauce. If you like sweeter cranberry sauce, you may want to add another tablespoon of brown sugar. Serve with: Mashed sweet potatoes, sautéed Brussels sprouts and a glass of Riesling.

Yummy!!

I've made a similar recipe using pork tenderloin, and this turned out just as good if not better! I seared the turkey loin in a cast iron skillet and then transferred it directly into the oven to finish baking. I baked at 425 (instead of 450) for only about 15 minutes and it was done. For the cranberry sauce, I omitted the shallots because I don't care for them, and used rosemary instead of thyme. The store didn't have fresh or frozen cranberries, so I had to settle for the canned version but it still turned out sweet and delicious (I did not add brown sugar or vinegar either.) Served with mashed cauliflower, it was wonderful!!

This is a great and easy recipe and awesome leftovers. But if you live in a part of the country where cranberries aren't always available buy extra when they are and freeze them. They keep forever.

easy and good
