Turkey Stew Sage White Wine Sauce Pinterest

Easy turkey stew with sage and white wine sauce recipe, this turkey stew is simmered for 40 minutes, the meat is juicy and tender, a comforting and advantageous meal, delicious!

This turkey stew makes for an easy weekday meal and is also delicious for entertaining, the white wine can be replaced by Noilly Prat, a very dry vermouth, to bring this stew to another level.

The sauce is flavored with sage, Paris mushrooms and white wine. The sage leaves are only used to flavor the cooking oil and then discarded. If you don’t like the taste of sage, you can replace it with any aromatic herb you prefer, I would recommend basil or tarragon, just add after the meat is seared on all sides and leave them during the whole cooking process.

Turkey meat is rather dry, the marinade helps to tenderize the meat and also with the browning. I always marinate my chicken or turkey or duck with this marinade, I find that it makes the poultry less fibrous and so tender.

When I’m making a turkey roast or stew, I buy a turkey breast. In my area, turkey breasts generally weigh about 32 oz. / 2.2 pounds / 1 kilo so adjust the ingredient quantities to your need, leftovers can be frozen for about a month.
