Peppery Herbed Turkey Tenderloin Recipe

I won the North Carolina Turkey Cook-Off one year with these full-flavored tenderloins in rich sauce. Marinating the turkey in wine, garlic, rosemary and thyme gives it a fantastic taste.—Virginia C. Anthony, Jacksonville, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 3, 2013

I certainly liked this dish, I just wasn't in love with it. Turkey and the sauce both had good flavor. I served them over buttered egg noodles. I may or may not use this recipe again but it is a good use of turkey.

was really surprised at the amazing flavor as some turkey dishes can lean towards bland. I didn't have parsley but did have cilantro so substituted and we grilled the marinated turkey, really really good!!!!
