I never really consider buying turkey, but these steaks turned up in my meat box this week and I was quite excited to see what I could do with them. My life is clearly boring as hell if turkey steaks can get me all worked up.
After yesterday’s disaster with the apple and ginger cookies, I decided to let ginger redeem itself and used it for the marinade. I also had a couple of oranges in serious need of using up before they exploded all over my kitchen. It’s a good combination.
Here’s what you need:
400g turkey steaks
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
small handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
1 garlic clove, crushed
freshly squeezed juice of half an orange
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper
How to make it:
In a small bowl, thoroughly mix together all the ingredients, except for the turkey steaks.
Put your turkey steaks in a plastic bag and bash them with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin (it’s really fun).
Rinse and dry them, and place in a bowl.
Rub the marinade all over the steaks, and if you have time allow to sit for at least 30 minutes.
When you are ready to cook them, heat some oil in a pan.
Add the steaks to the pan, pour in any remaining marinade and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. They may need longer, but don’t overcook them.
Serve immediately. They are really juicy and tasty!
