incredible Leftover Sweet and Sour Turkey | Christmas Leftovers | Leftover Turkey Recipe

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

One of my favourite cooking challenges is deciding what to do with the leftover turkey after Christmas day. Give that leftover turkey a tangy transformation by using it for sweet and sour turkey.

Leftover roast turkey in a light, crispy coating, tossed together with a classic sweet and sour sauce, plus crunchy peppers and onions.

Crispy Turkey
▢ 400 g (14 oz) leftover cooked turkey – shredded or chopped into cubes/pieces
▢ 2 tbsp cornflour – cornstarch
▢ ½ tsp salt
▢ ½ tsp black pepper
▢ 3 tbsp vegetable oil

Sweet and Sour Sauce
▢ 1 tbsp vegetable oil
▢ 1 big onion – peeled and chopped into big chunks
▢ 1 red pepper – chopped into 1 inch pieces
▢ 1 green pepper – chopped into 1 inch pieces
▢ 2 cloves of garlic – peeled and chopped/crushed
▢ 1 tsp minced ginger
▢ 150 ml (⅔ cup) tomato ketchup
▢ 2 tbsp malt vinegar
▢ 6 tbsp dark brown muscovado sugar
▢ 425 g (15 oz) canned pineapple chunks in juice

To Serve:
▢ Boiled or fried rice
▢ 1 tsp sesame seeds

put the turkey in a bowl with the cornflour, salt and pepper and toss together to coat.

Heat the oil over a high heat in a wok or big frying pan.

Add the turkey, and cook for 5-6 minutes, turning occasionally until the turkey is golden and crispy.

Remove the turkey from the wok using a slotted spoon and put in a bowl lined with kitchen paper to drain off any excess oil.

Now make the sauce. Add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil to the wok (or frying pan).

Heat it up on a medium-to-high heat and add in the onions. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring every now and then until the onions begin to go translucent.

Add the peppers and cook for a further minute.

Add in the garlic and ginger and cook for another minute.

Add the tomato ketchup, vinegar, dark brown sugar, and the tinned pineapple (including the juice) and stir. Bring to the boil, and then turn down the heat and let it bubble, stirring every so often until slightly thickened (about 2-3 minutes).

Add the crispy turkey back to the wok with the sauce and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring a couple of times to coat the turkey in the sauce.

Serve with boiled or fried rice and a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
