I love to keep sautéed ground turkey in the fridge, as there are so many meals you can build from it….soups, sautés, and of course my mason jar meals. For me it is all about mixing and matching my leftovers to make new and interesting combinations.
Sautéed Ground Turkey
I usually prep 1 or 2 pounds at a time.
Start with your favorite fat in the pan…I like duck fat….or olive oil.
Sauté a pile of fresh chopped shallots.
Add the meat and sauté until browned.
Season with salt, pepper and onion powder (we keep that mixed in a shaker by the stove)
If there are bits of caramelized goodness on th bottom fo the pan, you can add a splash of bone broth and they will mix in with the meat…so sad to waste them , as they are super yummy!
Depending on my mood I may add in any of the following to the batch:
- fresh grated ginger
- chopped lemongrass
- freeze dried shallots for double shallot goodness
- fish sauce (haven’t done that in a while…overdue!)
The possibilites are endless!
I store it in a 6 cup glass pyrex container in the fridge.
When it is time to make a meal you can
- start with bone broth…chop in veggies…simmer til soft and then serve over the turkey
- start with veggies…saute and then stir in turkey…toss on some ginger scallion sauce
- add to a salad
- toss it with ginger scallion sauce and pair with leftover cauli rice and some brussels
- build a mason jar meal for an “on the go” option
You get the idea. Be creative and come up with new mix and match combinations!
