Grilled Turkey Tenderloins

  Tired of roasted, fried or even smoked turkey?  Or are you just needing to feed 2 or 3 people?  Here is another alternative.  With the popularity of turkey being an alternative and healthier choice, it’s more available.  Fresh turkey alternatives range from breast to wing drumetttes.  I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier for the past year.  This time I chose tenderloins.  They are just like chicken tenders, just alot larger.  The tenderloin comes from between the breast and the breastbone.  Being boneless and skinless, you have to make sure to not dry them out.   These are grilled and sliced into medallions. 

Be sure to cook until the internal temp gets up to 160*.

  •  2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper 
  • Hen & Hog Dust

  Coat the tenderloins with Olive oil.  Salt and pepper and then sprinkle dry rub(I used Hen & Hog Dust from Spicewine Iron Works) over on both sides of the turkey. 

     Pre-heat grill on High.  Once up to temp, place tenderloins on the grill, close lid.  After 5 minutes, flip each tenderloin and reduce to Medium heat.  Cook for about 20 minutes or until internal temperature reached 155*.  Remove and allow to rest for 5 minutes.  The internal temp should reach 160*.   Then slice into medallions.
