Ingredients

Servings  6  

  • 2 lb sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup 100% orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 package lean turkey tenderloin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 (14-ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce

Directions

Tip: Click on step to mark as complete.

  1. Coat the bowl of a large slow cooker (like 4-quart, 5-quart, or bigger) with cooking spray.
  2. Wash the sweet potatoes. Chop each sweet potato into a 1-inch medium dice. Add potatoes into the slow cooker bowl, along with orange juice, sage, and thyme. Stir to combine ingredients together.
  3. Place the 2 turkey tenderloins over the potato mixture. Season turkey with salt and pepper; add cranberry sauce over the turkey, using a spatula to spread it over the turkey.
  4. Cover slow cooker with lid and cook until both the potatoes and turkey are fully-cooked, about 4 to 5 hours on high temperature or 8 to 10 hours on low temperature.
  5. Transfer the turkey to a cutting board to slice. Use a slotted spoon to remove the diced sweet potato and serve; or use a potato masher to smash the sweet potato with remaining liquid in slow cooker for a sweet potato mash. Serve.

Keep it Healthy: Some turkey breast tenderloins in the grocery store are already marinated, which means added sodium. Try to rinse the marinade off the turkey if that is the case.

Cooking Tip: Substitute apple cider for the orange juice for an autumn feel.

Tip: Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce has just a tad less sugar than the Jellied Cranberry Sauce. However, the jellied version is a fine substitute if needed.
