Think Food Thursdays – Think Thai Peanut Turkey StirFry

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 carrots

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???
