Hi this is Soulful! I like soul food or any food
really that tastes good.
I guess that is the southern boy coming out of me.
I loved watching my Mom throw down in
the kitchen so I hoped
I have picked up a few things. I was thinking
about cooking these
delicious turkey necks my
wife bought and so I decided to give it a try.
Someone asked me for the recipe so I will
attempt to write it down. Here goes. First,
get some fresh, washed, turkey necks and place
them in a clear bag. Now the good part is to
season the necks in the bag with a teaspoon
of onion powder, teaspoon of garlic powder, and a
teaspoon of season salt. Second, put some flour in
the bag - just enough to coat the necks and
seal the bag. I place the bag in the refrigerator
until I am ready for them. Third, start to get the
oven ready at 350 deg temp. While the oven is
heating up set up a frying pan on the stove and
place some virgin olive oil and a teaspoon of
vegetable oil. Get the bag of necks out of the frig
and set them aside until the pan is hot.
Place the coated necks into the pan and
sear them on all sides. Once you have the
necks good and brown place them in a
aluminum pan. Fourth, use the grease in the
pan to make some gravy that will smother the
necks. Get some onions and saute them in the
grease. Add a teaspoon of pepper. Once you
saute the onions put about 2 to 3 or more
teaspoons of flour (I'm a country boy so I like
gravy), teaspoon of salt and a cup and 1/2 of
water with some chicken stock. After the gravy
is nice and getting thick place the gravy
mixture in the aluminum pan with the necks.
Cover the pan with some aluminum foil and place
into the oven for about an hour and a half
(till tender). Check the necks for tenderness.
I like my turkey necks to be tender but yet
golden brown so I set them under
the broiler for a few minutes.
Thats it! Good luck and good eaten :-).
