This dish is ideal for a date night, lunch, or a special occasion. The legs of the turkey, in my opinion, are the most flavorful section of the bird.
Slow-cooking turkey steaks in your favorite sweet red wine until tender and tossing over my Buttery Blue Cheese Sweet Potatoe Mash creates the ideal flavor and textural combination.
I hope you enjoy creating and eating it as much as we did.

Lets Season Turkey Leg Steaks

  • These pre-sliced Turkey drum legs were purchased from a local grocery store. Whole turkey legs or turkey wings work just as well.

  • Wash turkey legs in a mixture of lime juice and water. Drain lime water from the turkey legs and season with jerk seasoning, complete seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Braised Turkey Leg Steaks

  • Heat oil in a cast iron Dutch pot for about 2 minutes. Remove the excess marinate from the legs and carefully lay each piece of turkey steak in hot oil. Add 1 cup warm water to the remaining marinade and set aside.
    Sear or brown each side for 1-2 minutes or until browned over medium heat

  • Remove the braised turkey leg steaks from hot oil and set aside in a bowl. The remaining bits and pieces from turkey leg steaks will add a lot of flavor to the reduced sauce.
    To deglaze the bottom of the pan, add the carrots, onion, sweet (bell) peppers and stir well. Use the blade of the spoon to help scrape all that flavor from the bottom of the pan.
    Pour the marinade over the vegetables and toss to combine. Allow vegetables to cook for another 2 minutes.

  • Pour 3 cups of your preferred sweet red wine into the vegetable mixture. I used Manischewitz cherry-flavored red wine in this recipe.
    This wine is ideal for this dish. It adds the right amount of sweetness and richness to the red wine reduction sauce, which balances off the heat of the spicy peppers.

  • To the wine mixture, add the turkey leg steaks, thyme sprigs, 2 scallion stalks, and scotch bonnet peppers.
    Stir well together and allow them to cook for 35 to 40 minutes over low to medium heat in a covered pot or until the turkey legs are tender.
