Cara's Turkey & gravy step by step
- Chop veggies, if you choose to add them.* This step can be skipped if you prefer just meat & gravy.* These need to be boiled in a large pot. Everything will go in this pot, eventually..
- While veggies boil, shredded the turkey into bite size or desirable pieces. I used wings, legs & breast to have a mixture. I kept checking the veggies with a fork. You don't want them too mushy. I lightly seasoned the turkey..
- Once the veggies seem easy to puncture, remove from pot. Add the butter & flour, on medium-high heat stirring frequently.
- After 5-7min of stirring & letting the flour cook, add water/seasoning OR broth. Continue stirring to make sure there aren't any lumps. The heat can be lowered to medium once it thickens. Add veggies & cook about 10min.
- Lastly, add turkey. Stir & fold in well. This will need to cook about 15-20min. During this time you can decide if more seasonings are needed, more water or whatever. For a side, obviously I made rice, but potatoes or stuffing would be delicious as well! Enjoy!.
