Beer Pairings

A light-bodied Belgian Strong Ale is the way to go. The fruit and spicy aromas provide a nice finish to highlight the ginger and sesame flavors.

TK Table Talk:

Do you believe hardship makes a person stronger?

What To Do:

1. Ground turkey may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Cook Rice: In a medium saucepan, over high heat, bring 1 ¼ cups water and ¼ teaspoon salt to a boil. Stir in rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

4. Cook Turkey: Heat sesame oil and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and ginger. Cook, breaking meat apart, 5 to 6 minutes or until turkey is browned and crumbly.

5. Finish Dish: Add cabbage and carrots to turkey mixture. Sauté 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in sauce and cook 1 more minute.

To Serve: Divide rice evenly between 2 bowls or plates. Top with turkey mixture and sprinkle with green onion.

Pro Tip:

Use a fork or rice paddle to fluff the rice once it’s cooked to avoid it from becoming mushy.
Spice it Up!: Chinese five spice powder is a blend of ground cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns. Stir in ½ teaspoon to add even more flavor to this dish.
