Recipe — Maple Pulled Turkey Sandwiches
20 portions
Metric Imperial

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 1/2 lbs turkey (legs or breasts, with bones and skin)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 head of garlic, cut in half
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 bottle of dark ale
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 20 bread rolls

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 °C (325 °F).
  2. In a large oven-proof casserole dish, heat the olive oil over medium heat and brown the turkey pieces for about 3 minutes per side. Add the onion and garlic, and fry for 1 minute.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients (except the bread), then add to the casserole dish. Cover and bring to the boil, then bake for 3 hours.
  4. Leave to cool before removing the turkey pieces from the dish. Remove the skin, de-bone then shred the meat with a fork. Set the shredded turkey aside.
  5. Remove the fat from the meat juices using a spoon, then return the pulled turkey to the casserole dish. Mix together well and reheat for about 5 minutes.
  6. When ready to serve, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Fill the bread rolls with meat and place on a baking sheet, then cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
