    Flavor, flavor, flavor! From Good Deal with Dave Lieberman.Good deal Dave!This may be cooked in a crockpot. The ale in this may be replaced by chicken or vegetable broth. You may also use chicken legs and wings instead of turkey.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 -5 lbs turkey wings, and drumsticks (or chicken)
    • salt and pepper
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 -2 large onion, diced in 1/2-inch pieces
    • 4 carrots, peeled, halved lengthwise, and diced in 1/2-inch pieces
    • 4 stalks celery, bottoms and tips removed, halved lengthwise, and diced in 1/2-inch pieces
    • 6 ounces tomato paste
    • 1 cup chicken broth
    • 1/4 cup cider vinegar (try half balsamic vinegar)
    • 12 ounces ale (or lager beer, or try wine)
    • 6 -8 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
    • 1 cup pitted oil-cured olives
    • 2 large fresh rosemary sprigs (or 1 tsp. dried)
    • cooked egg noodles, for serving


    1. 1
      Generously salt and pepper the turkey.
    2. 2
      Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large heavy pot or Dutch oven over high heat. Add the turkey wings and drumsticks and brown evenly on all sides. Do this in batches if necessary.
    3. 3
      When browned, remove the turkey from the pot. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add onions, carrots, and celery and cook until tender. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring, until it is mixed in well. Add all remaining ingredients, except olives and rosemary, and stir until everything is mixed well. Bring this liquid to a simmer, then add the turkey back to the pot, along with the olives and rosemary, and bring to a simmer. Cook about 3-3 1/2 hours over a low flame at a low simmer until the turkey meat falls off the bone easily with just a little nudge from a fork(or throw in a crockpot at this point and cook on high for 3-3 1/2 hours-or low for 6-8 hours). Remove rosemary sprigs and serve over hot egg noodles. Enjoy!

      Note: During cooking, occasionally check to see if the turkey is getting too browned or dried where not submerged under the braising liquid. If so, stir into the liquid and continue cooking.

      I had 2 turkey thighs and a bunch of chicken thighs which I threw in. I used bok choy for the celery and Sake for the alcohol. Left out the olives and forgot the rosemary. I put it all in the crockpot on low for about 5 hours and then added some starch to thicken the sauce. Put over rice and it was very good. Kids ate it over the rice (which they usu. don't do). It made a ton! :) Made for Zaar Tag.
