I went to my mother-in-law's over the past weekend. She did something amazing with a turkey. She cooked it in her crockpot. Who knew? I was just sure that I would still despise that giant bird that tasted like bird. Turkey always seems to be a little gamey for me.
So I sat down to dinner, and as a gracious dinner guest, I put the turkey on my plate. I had already verbalized my dislike for this meat, but wanted to give this recipe a chance. It was, yes, get ready, delicious. There was no "birdy" taste in my mouth at all. The turkey was juicy and full of flavor, just not bird.
In order for me to have this recipe in a place that I would forever have it accessible, I decided to post it here. Thankfully, anyone else is welcome to try it. I am telling you it is great. Your kitchen doesn't get hot, you don't have to open the oven every 30 minutes to baste it, and it taste great!
Here ya go!
1 turkey breast
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
½ cup orange juice ( I added a little extra because the breast was so large)
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1.Place the turkey in the slow cooker
2. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour over turkey
3. Cover, cook for 6-8 hours (I believe it was on low for this amount of time, but check your manual for proper internal temperature at doneness).
I will forever be grateful for a turkey dinner that isn't reminiscent of a turkey. Now that I have this recipe I may make it twice year, lol.
