A tender, juicy method for cooking a turkey. This is perfect for serving as a main course or making turkey sandwiches. The cooking juice is delicious when thickened and served as a Seasoned Gravy, which I've included here.
- 5 1⁄2-6 lbs turkey breast, with bone
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
- 1⁄2 teaspoon marjoram
- 1⁄2 teaspoon rosemary
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cajun seasoning
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 teaspoon ground dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon creamed horseradish
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1⁄2 cup cold water
- 1⁄4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- Wash turkey, drain, and place in 3-1/2 quart or larger crock pot, making sure that the lid will fit securely after turkey is added to crock pot.
- Place all seasonings, garlic and onion around the sides of the turkey.
- Pour water and Worcestershire sauce over the top of the turkey.
- Place lid on crock pot.
- Turn temperature control to HIGH and cook 3 to 4 hours or until done.
- When the turkey is done, the bone will gently release from the meat.
- Remove turkey from crock pot, drain, and place on a large cutting board.
- If gravy is desired, reserve liquid in crock pot for making gravy.
- Let turkey cool for 5 minutes, while making gravy.
- Cut into thin slices.
- Place slices on a serving platter.
- To make Gravy: Strain liquid in crock pot.
- For each cup of liquid, mix the following: 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch, 1 tablespoon water Pour corn starch mixture into hot broth mixture in crock pot, stirring constantly until thickened.
I made this turkey - it was so deliciously tender and wonderfully seasoned. I left out the Horseradish.
This had a great flavor, and the gravy was wonderful, but I do agree that it was rather dry.
interesting and different seasoning. the turkey flavor was very good. the gravy was not the traditional one my family was used to but they still liked it. i cooked it in the crockpot on high for 4 hours, but it was kind of dry. i'll probably adjust it for low next time.
