I left out the vanilla because I was a bit scared what it would do the flavor. It was quite good without it but I may make it with it on one of my more daring feeling days.

This recipe is awesome. I used Apple Cider, olive oil, fresh ginger and omitted the vanilla. It may be may favorite meat recipe.

I've been making these for several years. So good and easy. At times I have put them in the broiler.

I've never made turkey tenderloins before and wasn't sure what to expect. The turkey came out very moist and tender. I will make turkey tenderloins again, but I would cut out the vanilla in this recipe. I found it overwhelmed the marinade.

Excellent marinade! I grill turkey cutlets using this recipe. Just a tip, if you don't like apple juice to drink, buy it in the baby asile next to the baby food. You won't waste a whole big bottle of it!
