How To Make Soy-Braised Turkey with Turkey Rice

The combination of soy sauce and sugar gives this braised turkey a deep and rich flavor that goes perfectly with the steamed jasmine rice.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the sliced shallot, red wine vinegar, sugar, and salt. Let stand for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until the shallot is softened.

  2. In a saucepan, mix the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, quartered shallot, garlic, and ginger; bring to a boil. Add the dark turkey meat and cook over low heat for about 1 hour, stirring, until the liquid is reduced by half.

  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the turkey stock with the rice, turkey fat, and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes until the rice is tender and the stock is absorbed.

  4. Cover the saucepan with a kitchen towel, then cover with the lid and let the rice steam for 20 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork.

  5. Spoon the soy-braised turkey into bowls, add the turkey rice, and garnish with the pickled shallot rings.
