Reviews for Autumn Turkey Tenderloins
"This turned out great! The only thing I would change would be to add more apple slices. Served it with mashed butternut squash and it made a super easy fall dinner."
"I agree with marylouboo I am going to try it with pork tenderloin, and it easier to get a pork tenderloin and apple always are good with pork"
"I also used cutlets because I can't find a tenderloin. The sauce was very mild, even a little boring. I added about 1.5 tsp of apple cider vinegar to give it some brightness. DD gave it 3 stars, DH gave 4 as did I. It is not going to be a staple recipe but I definitely will make again."
"I liked this one but my DH wasn't as thrilled with it. I liked it though!"
"Yum! I used leftover turkey."
"I would think this would be good with a pork tenderloin, too. I am going to try it."
"I love this recipe. The only problem is I can't find Turkey breast tenderloin where I live. I have made it twice with turkey cutlets, but even these are seldom seen at the grocery store. I might have to try chicken next time."
