Monday I bought Turkey Breast Strips for the first time. It is a heart healthy meat so I thought I would give it a try.. and hey… I didn’t have to cut it up.. .it was already cut into tiny stir fry strips for me! Love it! Since I LOVE Thai Peanut Sauce…I thought that would be the best way to try the new ‘meat’. It was delicious!! Here is how I cooked it!
You will need:
1 lb. of Turkey Breast strips – (Jenni-O)
1/3 cup Top Foods Brand – Full Circle – Organic – Thai Peanut Satay Sauce. Yummy!
3 celery stalks
1/2 red pepper
1/2 purple onion
usually we use ‘baby’ corn in the can – but we were out! sniff!
and 1/2 cup cashews (we were out of those too – NUTS! are the best part!)
2 cloves of garlic
oregano, sage, thyme … any yummy herbs!
Chop all veges ahead of time I like them sliced thin… as they cook faster! Turkey is already chopped – yippie! Start rice – I used Brown Rice for the grown ups (45 minutes) and white rice (20 minutes) for our picky kids! So timing is everything… I started the brown rice – gave it 15 minutes before starting the white rice. Once the white rice is started … then Satay the turkey in a drizzle of olive oil and herbs until pink is gone. Cover and set aside. Satay veggies, garlic and cashews in a little olive oil to desired crisp or softness. Place turkey back on to reheat – in my house I remove some plain turkey for the kids now as they don’t like the sauce YET – then add Thai Peanut sauce to turkey strips and heat for 2-3 minutes. I serve the kids only the veggies they will eat (celery, carrots, corn and cashews) Then I mix the turkey and veggies together… serve over rice … and enjoy! We used to love adding a little crushed red pepper to it as well… spice is not always my friend these days… so I left that part out! OK.. I am going to add a few VERY unprofessional pictures of our dinner – remember we were out of nuts and baby corn which would have made the dinner and pictures more yummy! It was still delicious … I will use those turkey strips again… they are not too expensive $5.99? and turned out to be a great dinner! Ah yes I forgot to say … my kids love honey or maple syrup on their meat! This Recipe feeds a family of 4. What is your favorite Satay or Stir Fry???
