Turbo Turkey - Cook the Damn Bird Above the Camshaft
So, I suppose we're going both redneck and Thanksgiving turkey twice today (Redneck Slingshot Chick + Extreme Thanksgiving Recipes). Something about home for the holidays inspires... and this is pretty darn great.
Car lover? Know any car lovers (or rednecks)? Then Manifold Destiny might make it on your Christmas list this year. According to USA Today, the book includes "recipes for such delectables like Impressive Veal Impreza, Prius Pork and Ford F-150 Hot Texas Wieners..."
So, here it is, "To Grandmother's House Road Turkey", just in time for the holidays:
1 Boneless turkey breast, about five pounds, sliced into thin strips against the grain
3 large baking potatoes, peeled and diced
3 carrots, finely diced
Dry white wine
Flour for dredging
Butter for greasing foil
Salt and pepper to taste
Three-quarters cup heavy cream
1. At home, combine the turkey, potatoes and carrots into a bowl with the wine and cover. Marinate two hours in the refrigerator, then drain well (and don't drink the wine). Setting the vegetables aside, dredge the turkey pieces in flour, then heavily butter five large squares of foil.Arrange equal amounts of turkey and vegetables in each square, and season with sale and pepper as desired. Cup the foil around the turkey and vegetables, and pour over each serving as much heavy cream as you can without making a soupy mess, then seal carefully.
2. Cook on the engine about four hours, turning once. We're assuming grandmother doesn't live in the next town.
