In my opinion, the best turkey stew recipe is the one with influences from Hungarian cuisine, with paprika and mushrooms, and served with pasta. You lick your fingers so good and delicious it is!
Turkey meat can be a healthier alternative to chicken if you manage to buy quality meat. You can get turkey stew as tasty as a chicken stew, but with a special texture.
It is an easy recipe and is prepared in a relatively short time.
I Only Used a Few Ingredients
The meat I chose to use was turkey breast, from which I used a beautiful piece of about 700 g.
But know that it can be made just as well from boned turkey thighs.
The other ingredients were a piece of leek and about 500 g of white mushrooms.
And so, from these three ingredients we will make a delicious turkey stew.
Prepare the Ingredients From the Stew
I cut the turkey breast into cubes, not too big, to cook faster.
I cleaned the mushrooms and chose to slice them, but I left the little ones whole.
And of course, the leek, after I cleaned it, I cut it in half, then I sliced it thinly.
How to Cook the Best Turkey Stew Recipe?
Very simple, like any other stew, in a stockpot heat about four tablespoons of sunflower oil (or goose fat) and in which we will fry the chopped leeks.
Fry for about two to three minutes, then add two tablespoons of sweet pepper paste. If you don’t have one, you can put a red bell pepper, finely chopped, or two tablespoons of sweet paprika powder.
Stir and fry for another minute, after which we can add the turkey meat.
You will see how the meat will change colour, turn white but will not fry, but will start to boil in its own juice that will leave it.
Season with two teaspoon of sea salt and a teaspoon of ground pepper.
I added a glass of warm water (about 200 ml), put the lid on and let it boil for about 20-30 minutes, over medium heat.
Now we can put the sliced mushrooms.
Stir, put the lid on and boil everything for another 15 minutes. The mushrooms will also leave water in them, but I added a glass of warm water to have more juice.
Thickening the Stew
During this time we start to make the thickener. For this, we put in a bowl two tablespoons of wheat flour.
To this I added half the amount of 300 ml of single cream.
Mix well with a spoon or a whisk, not to make lumps, and pour the rest of the single cream.
With this sauce, we will thicken our stew. But for this, we have to equality the temperatures by putting a ladle of hot stew stock over the thickener.
Mix and pour everything into the pot, over the stew.
Boil for another five minutes to cook the wheat flour in the thickener, put a tablespoon of chopped green parsley and ready, this is my best turkey stew recipe, ready to serve.
Serving the Stew
If you want, you can make and consume a summer salad with stew, as I did.
