Turkey Tenderloin with Tomato Chutney
2 turkey tenderloins
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1. Preheat the SousVide Supreme to 142F/61C.

1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained well
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground coriander
2 whole cloves
2 teaspoons mustard seed
¼ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
½ cup diced onion
1 teaspoon Ghee (clarified butter) or unsalted butter
1. Preheat the SousVide Supreme to 194F/90C.
2. Combine all ingredients in a food grade cooking pouch.
3. Press out as much air as possible from the pouch (do not vacuum or do so gingerly as there will be some residual liquid in the tomatoes) and seal.
