Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Paleo Slow Cooker Turkey Tenderloin

Paleo Slow Cooker Turkey Tenderloin

So, this is the next in my series of recipes for putting together that yummy turkey cranberry sandwich I made a couple weeks ago.  And of course, the fresh turkey is the star.  


The Turkey Cranberry Sandwich Creation

This recipe is super easy to make.  Just throw everything in, and let the slow cooker work its magic.  It would be perfect to throw in the crock pot before you head out to work for the day, so that you have something delicious for dinner when you return.  I like to eat this over salads for lunch, or on gluten free sandwich bread with my Cranberry Sauce, or even just as a side with some Creamy Cauliflower Puree and sauteed greens. You can mix the leftover onions and carrots with the turkey after you shred it, or you can puree it with an immersion blender and make a simple, flavorful and flourless gravy.  

Hope you all enjoy!  --J
