Thanksgiving Turkey 2

Asian Turkey Brine

To brine or not to brine that is the question.  I go both ways on the issues.  Some years I brine the turkey and some years I don’t.  If you’re looking for a unique brine try my Asian Turkey Brine this year for either your holiday bird.  You can also use this brine for chicken. 

INGREDIENTS

2 Cups Soy Sauce

2 Gallons Water

1 1/2 Cups Kosher Salt

10 Cloves Minced Garlic

3 Tablespoon Whole Black Peppercorns

4 Dried Bay Leaves

1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar

In large food safe container combine all of the ingredients. Whisk until salt and sugar are totally dissolved.  Place turkey into brine.  Leave in brine for 1 hour per pound of meat. Once done brining, remove from brine and pat meat dry before booking. Roast turkey and baste with extra soy sauce.
