The recipe is for crockpot turkey, with turkey breast, merlot, onions, cranberry sauce and 1 oz knorr peppercorn sauce mix. I used 1oz peppercorn marinade mix. Will it ruin it?

    Define "OK". Also, what is "peppercorn sauce mix", and what is "peppercorn marinade"? These are not standard cooking terms.

  • I think you may have a legitimate question, but you need to give us more information. I guess what I think you're asking is "What will happen to my dish, given that I am using X instead of Y." You'll need to tell us what is in both X and Y as well as more information about what you're making and how.

It won't be the exact same thing as the original recipe; you've essentially seasoned it differently. So I'd expect it won't be better or worse just different, but depending on your tastes it might well be better or worse. I can imagine it ending up under-salted since the marinade mix might be less salty than the sauce mix.
