Remove turkey breast meat from the bone.
Note: This can be done by a butcher at your grocery store.
Also, look for turkey breast steaks precut and packaged.
If you would like to try it yourself just follow the directions below.
Do not worry if the slices do not turn out perfect as any size or shape will grill up just fine.
You can even cut the meat into larger chunks and make kebabs if you like.
After you have successfully removed the meat from the bone:
Remove and discard the skin.
Trim away any excess fat.
Remove the turkey tenderloin from the turkey breast.
The tenderloin is found on the bone side of the meat.
It can be mostly pulled off by hand with the addition of one little slice to free it from the whole breast.
Slice the tenderloin in half lengthwise.
Start slicing the breast into long, thin steaks.
Repeat slicing until the whole breast is sliced into turkey steaks, also known as cuttletts.
Gather, measure and process all of the marinade ingredients.
Place all marinade ingredients into a food processor.
Run machine until you have a fine puree.
Remove puree from food processor bowl.
Place into a small bowl.
Rub generous amount of marinade on both sides of each turkey steak.
Repeat until all turkey is well covered with puree.
Place turkey into a glass baking dish.
Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
Heat BBQ grill and cook turkey over medium-high heat.
Thin steaks take about 4 minutes on each side.
Thicker steaks will take longer.
If you want to check to see if they are cooked just cut one in half and look.
I would recommend serving this with some toasted whole wheat pita bread or with the Kasha Salad
To Garnish: Place cooked turkey on a serving platter.
Drizzle lemon or lime juice over the cooked turkey, maybe a pinch of salt.
Serve with lots of cucumber, tomato and onion plus a side of Tzatziki Sauce
New Taste Thinking:
This is as good of an example of a delicious lean protein as you will ever find. Big bold flavors that just happen to be healthy. Turkey steaks offer a fantastic, firm snappy texture that is unique to the turkey breast muscle. It can be eaten hot or cold and pairs up well with any number of grain and vegetable dishes.
