For some time now, I have been trying to diversify our menu with turkey dishes, and this is one of them, in which I will use a lesser-known part of the turkey. It’s about the turkey medallion or turkey shoulder, a delicious tenderloin.

But let’s look at the ingredients first.

Ingredients

I used 300 g (0.66 lb) of turkey medallions ( shoulders ) for this recipe, but if you can’t find it, you can use turkey tenderloin from turkey breast.

I also chose to use three pieces of shallots (about 80 g) for a sweeter taste and the most sublime aroma.

I chose the third ingredient because I wanted the dish to have a fruity aroma, so I used 130 g of red grapes instead of peppers or other vegetables.

Preparing the Ingredients

Because the turkey shoulder pieces are a little thicker, I decided to cut them in half in thickness, to cook faster.

I seasoned these slices of meat with sea salt and ground black pepper and put them on a plate. These slices are enough for three generous servings.

I peel the shallots and slice them not very thin, and I cut the grapes only in two.

With the ingredients ready, we can start cooking.

How to Make the Best Turkey Tenderloin Recipe?

Frying the Meat

I chose to make the dish in a deeper frying pan, in which I heated 50 ml of extra virgin olive oil. After the oil warmed up, I first fried the meat.

While the meat is frying over medium heat, I sprinkled a teaspoon of dried thyme on top, because I really like the aroma of fried thyme.

Depending on the strength of the fire, fry the meat for about 1-2 minutes, until it gets a little golden colour, then turn them on the other side.

I fried them in the same way for 1-2 minutes on the other side, after which I took them out on a plate and put them aside.

Frying the Onions

To keep the flavours, in the same pan I put about 20 g of butter (a tablespoon) to melt. After it has warmed up a bit, we can fry the sliced shallots.

Fry the sliced shallots for about 5 minutes on medium to low heat, stirring occasionally, until well softened, but without catching colour. Now we can add the grapes.

I seasoned it with a teaspoon of salt and freshly ground pepper, left it for about three minutes for the grapes to leave their juice, and then I put the fried meat back in the pan.

Simmering the Stew

I sprinkled half a tablespoon of Hungarian sweet paprika powder on top and immediately poured half a cup of hot water, in which I dissolved a tablespoon of a vegetable mix for soups.

Because I like the taste of BBQ sauce, I added a spoonful of it and let it simmer for half an hour, until the tenderloin slices are done.

Finishing

After half an hour, check if the meat is done, and add 100 ml of single cream, which will give a creamy texture to our dish.

Serving the Dish

There are many ways to serve this dish, from pasta to mashed potatoes and from rice to sauteed vegetables, I chose to serve them with a vegetable stew and it was delicious.
