"I've been using this recipe for 10 years-we love it!" shares Debra Holt of Franklin, Virginia. "I am a high school teacher, and a student gave me the recipe."


  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 3/4 pound turkey breast tenderloins


  1. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, oil, sugar, garlic, ginger and mustard. Pour 1/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add turkey. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. On a lightly oiled grill rack, grill turkey, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 8-10 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°, turning twice and basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Cut into slices.
