Have you ever searched for a recipe ingredient that seemed very basic but turned out to be really hard to find? That’s what happened to me with this stew. Apparently turkey tenderloins are a rare find, at least in the Indianapolis area. After going to two different grocery stores, I ended up settling for a pre-marinated turkey tenderloin, hoping the flavor would fit well in the stew.
The thing I love about cooking though is that almost anything can be replaced with something else. Now baking is a different story, don’t try to replace ingredients when baking unless you know what you’re doing.
If you can’t find turkey tenderloins (even the pre-marinated kind), you may use chicken breast tenderloins or even use beef!
