Easy Pulled Turkey Sandwiches

Easy Pulled Turkey Sandwiches

I don’t know about you, but I end up with a lot of left over turkey after Christmas. In the past we have made turkey salad or mixed it with dressing and reheated it. This year I have been given a new recipe to try that is simple and sounds yummy…

Put 3-5 lbs of skinless, cooked turkey meat in a crock pot. I plan to use boneless pieces!

In a saucepan, combine:

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup spicy mustard, like Dijon
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

Stir well over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then turn down heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Stir in 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke.

Pour this mixture over the turkey in the crock pot.

You can let it cook for 8 to 10 hours on LOW. Or cook for 4 to 5 hours on HIGH. You want the turkey to be falling apart. If you used boneless pieces then you are ready to serve. If your turkey was still on the bone, you will need to remove the turkey pieces and de-bone them. Also check the sauce to be sure no bones were in the sauce. Put the de-boned meat back in the sauce.

Complete your sandwiches with your choice of buns and condiments like cheese and pickle slices. Serve with plenty of napkins!
