Easy and delicious. This makes a wonderful sauce and tender turkey steaks, great served with rice.


  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 1/4 lb. turkey steaks
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. slivered almonds


Heat the oil in a skillet, 5 minutes each side. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix together the remaining ingredients and pour over the steaks. Simmer, covered, until the the steaks are done, and the sauce is slightly thickened. Sprinkle with the almonds and serve.

Preparing a turkey using a Weber Kettle grill results in a moist turkey with a crispy skin without heating up the kitchen.


Total Time: 11 - 13 minutes per pound

Yield: depends on size of turkey

Source: adapted from Weber Kettle instruction booklet


  • 1 defrosted turkey up to 18 lbs
  • olive or vegetable oil
  • seasonings


  1. Remove the giblet package. Do not stuff turkey.
  2. Use skewers to secure the wings and any large skin flaps,
  3. You can use skewers or string to secure the legs if it did not come with a wire or plastic piece already securing them.
  4. Rub the turkey with vegetable oil of your choice (we prefer olive but any will do).
  5. Sprinkle oiled bird with seasoning of your choice - salt & pepper, poultry seasoning, lemon pepper, etc.
  6. Place bird on grill or in roast rack on grill and cook using indirect method* for 11 - 13 minutes per pound, until juices in center are clear or clear jiuces when pricking skin with a skewer.
  7. Ad

  8. Remove to platter, let cool for 15 minutes to make carving easier. You do not have to but the meat tends to shred and fall off the bones if you do not.

*Indirect method - coals on the sides and a drip pan with 2 - 3 cups of water directly under the bird. Then, keep covered except when adding additional charcoal or checking the turkey.

Blend all ingredients together in a shallow pan for marinade with turkey tenderloins or steaks. Add turkey, turning to coat both sides. Cover and marinate in refrigerator several hours, turning occasionally.
