Cajun Crockpot Turkey Roast

This is a variation of the crockpot turkey roast recipe I posted last month.  If you like cajun/creole flavoring try this one out.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Boneless Turkey Breast Roast
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 large celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed and minced (or 1 tablespoon minced garlic from a jar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon italian herb mix (or equivalent oregano, basil, etc. mix)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Thaw turkey breast and remove/discard gravy packet.  Place turkey roast in crockpot on low heat.  Add water and sprinkle salt and black pepper over roast.

Saute onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic over medium high heat until soft and moisture evaporates.  Add italian spices, parsley and cayenne pepper and mix well.  Place mixture over turkey breast in crockpot.  Add Tabasco and cover.

Cook in crockpot for seven and a half hours.  Remove netting from turkey roast and slice.  Serve over steamed rice.

    Tried this last night, with only a couple of changes:
    1) I simply sliced the peppers )lazy) which mant they didn’t stay on top of the roast.
    2) I juiced the onions and placed them and a sliced apple on the bottom of the pot.
    3) Left out the water.
    4) Half a head of garlic.
    5) Gave the unseasoned breast 30 minutes @500F to brow it first.
    6) Spiced the breast with Tabasco, then cayenne, followed with the sautéed vegetables.

    Everyone loved it, next time I’ll chop the peppers and probably add some Ancho for a bit more paper flavor.

    Charles,

    That sounds great! If you try the Ancho version, post back and let us know how it tastes. I’ve been thinking of trying a hispanic version using Chipotles in Adobo. I’m just afraid my family won’t eat it! (too spicy for them)
