Easy and delicious!
This is a really great way to cook turkey! I did use a pre-seasoned boneless breast, so I used the beer (hefeweizen) and butter, but skipped the onion soup mix so it wouldn't be too salty. The turkey is really moist and flavorful. I look forward to trying the full recipe with regular turkey breast. Thanks for posting, I will make this again!
Wonderful recipe. Easy, moist meat and full of flavor. I used two 3 lb. turkey roast (boneless), removed from those elastic nets, and placed in crock pot (5-6 quart needed). When shredding, no need to remove bones and only small amount of skin to discard. Placed shredded meat back into crock pot with liquid, stirred to coat all shredded meat well and cooked for additional hour on low. Most guests loved this as is. Some wanted to add BBQ sauce. Great as leftovers as well. Next time, I will try with other flavors of Lipton onion soup mix like golden onion or beefy onion. I am also going to try this with pork roast and make pulled pork. This is definitely a winner. It served 14 with only a small amount left over. Could half recipe (use one three pound turkey roast) for family, or even make full amount and freeze extra. You cannot go wrong with this recipe. It is a winner!
I was so glad to find this recipe - first had a sandwich at a sports bar in Mankato, MN and my husband and I loved it. Tried this recipe and it was even better. I have served this many times since, at football games and parties. Great to make ahead and freeze.
What an easy great tasting sandwich this made for our July 4th picnic. Enjoyed by all! Thank-you!
My initial reaction when I first removed the crock-pot cover was an intense odor of beer. My first taste test proved the meat was too salty. I added a couple of cut up potatoes to the crock-pot to absorb the salt and left the cover ajar for the final hour of cooking. The final result was tasty shredded turkey sandwiches that were very simple to prepare. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC, Spring 2009
Fantastic! I made it exactly as directed and it was delicious! My husband ate 3 sandwiches and told me it was a definite "keeper" for a recipe!
This simple recipe really works! Just to change it up I added a small packet of dry Italian dressing mix. Tasted so good and everyone at the tailgate loved it.
