Crock pot turkey leg recipe
Grocery here often has fresh turkey legs and they’re very good!
I love the flavor combination of garlic and herbs with turkey meat and this recipe fulfills my taste buds’ expectations!
This is not meant to be a roast, but is meant to be fall apart soft – like a Mediterranean flavored meat.
What I realize with this recipe is that you can experiment how ever you want. You are always guaranteed very moist meat each time, with various flavors based on what seasonings you choose.
50 g. olive oil
200 g. white wine
4 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons dried mint
1 medium potato
1 L. of water
Salt and pepper
Sautee the vegetables until they are softened, about 10 minutes.
Place turkey leg in Crock pot and add wine, simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Cover and cook on low for 5 hours until falling apart or on high for approximately Crock pot temperatures vary, so it may be done sooner.
Longer for turkey legs would not hurt it if you were gone for the day though. It would just fall right off the bone.
Remove meat to serving platter and pull apart with forks until you have chunky shreds of meat.
Use your broth to make gravy and serve with rice.
