Since 1946 my family has been the turkey experts. My grandfather was the first to market an oven ready turkey with the head and feathers removed. At the time people thought he was crazy but now people can’t imagine buying a turkey any other way. He was also one of the first to sell turkey piece or unique cuts like turkey streaks or turkey scaloppini. In an effort to encourage more people to eat turkey on a regular basis, not just for holidays, my mother create this recipe. It is one of our favorites, especially since we have turkey for dinner at least once a week.
Hawaiian Delight Turkey (Serves 6)
6 Keller’s Turkey Steaks cut into cubes about 1 inch in size
1⁄4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1⁄4 tsp pepper
1⁄4 cup cooking oil
3 diced bell peppers (one each: red, green and yellow)
1 16 oz. can of pineapple chunks
1⁄4 cup cornstarch
1⁄2 cup sugar
1⁄2 cup vinegar
1⁄4 cup soy sauce
12 cherry tomatoes, quartered
Chinese noodles or cooked rice
Combine flour, salt and pepper. Coat each piece of meat with mixture. Brown meat slowly in oil, over medium heat. Drain the pineapple, but save liquid. Boil diced bell peppers until they are tender, using enough water to cover. Drain; save the liquid. Add water drained from peppers to pineapple liquid to make 1 cup. Drain drippings from the meat. Add pineapple and bell peppers to meat. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Mix cornstarch and sugar together in saucepan. Stir in pineapple juice, vinegar, and soy sauce. Cook mix, stirring constantly until clear (about 3 minutes). Pour sauce over the meat mixture. Simmer 8 to 10 minutes, turning meat occasionally. Fold in quartered tomatoes. Serve over Chinese noodles or cooked rice.
