Turkey Steak

Sheri Zarnick


Turkey Steak was another historic recipe found among the treasures of the old farmhouse. It is simple and really good. The way it is worded tells me that it's a pretty old recipe. Instead of a whole Turkey I tested it with a whole turkey breast. Since that is what the recipe focused on.

turkey breast (5-8 lbs) or you can parboil a 30 lbs turkey
1 qt
salt & pepper, to taste
2 c
flour enough for dredging
2 c
bread crumbs
deep fat


1Parboil a turkey of 26-30 lbs. ( I made it simple by using just the turkey breast) until fairly well done. Lift out breast and cut steaks as you would from a beef tenderloin.

2Dip steaks in a batter made of milk, eggs, salt, and pepper. Dredge in flour; shake off excess. Then dunk back in batter and dredge in breadcrumbs.

3Fry in fat (350^) until golden brown. (Cook in a deep fat fryer)
