Fruit, sherry, and miso play together for a rich and enticing sauce that plays up the earthiness of turkey for a lovely meal that is easy to make while being at home on the fanciest of tables.


  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. dry sherry
  • 1 Tbsp. miso
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper
  • 4 pitted prunes, diced
  • ½ tsp. rosemary
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 8 oz. turkey cutlets
  • 4 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 4 oz. mushrooms, thickly sliced


  1. Whisk together water, orange juice, sherry, miso, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until smooth. Add prunes and rosemary and set aside.
  2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey lightly in the flour, shaking off excess.
  3. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook until golden (2 minutes per side). Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  4. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in the pan over medium heat. Add shallot and mushrooms; cook, stirring, until browned (3-5 minutes). Add the miso mixture and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened (2-3 minutes).
  5. Reduce heat to low and return the turkey and any accumulated juices to the pan. Simmer gently, spooning sauce over turkey, until heated through (1-2 minutes).
