Got some turkey steaks for supper tonight, I would normally put them in the oven or stir fry, but the DCs don't like the 'crispy' bits. What they really like is roasted breast meat. I was wondering if I could poach the steaks to make them more tender? What would I poach them in? Do they need to be completely submerged?
Could put them in the oven in a tin with a bit of water with some onion etc and cover really tightly with foil. Then they'll be kind of half poached / half steamed with no crispy bits. Might take a little longer to cook though, depends how thick they are.
I'm not sure what they would be like...turkey is quite a 'dense'(?)meat and i think poaching really only works with flakier things eg fish? Essentially if you are just going to be boiling it in water theres not going to be much flavour.
Could you somehow braise it in gravy? I would think it would need to be cooked for a long while though to be tender.
