The flavor was really good. The recipe, however, did not say where to marinate.
(My refrigerator solidified the olive oil.) It should also have said approximately
how many slits to make per leg. I had too many left over onions/peppers/ and
bacon pieces. It did not say what to do with thoset. The cooking time indicated
was about half of what I needed (1 hr 20 minutes) until the juices ran clear. But
it was worth the work and my husband liked the results.
My husband went and bought 4 packages of turkey legs after eating this meal. I didn't cut slits and stuff the legs. Just chopped everything up and threw it in the pot with corriander seeds. I didnt have the soy sauce but I didn't miss it. I did add water as suggested. I removed the bacon towards the end and cooked it fully in the microwave. Served with rice covered in the sauce with bacon on top. Big hit with kids too.
Pretty and easy to make, this recipe is certainly quite salty. I would halve the salt. It was helpful to pull the skin down, stuff the turkey legs and then replace the skin. It made the turkey quite juicy. Definitely worth making.
this was actually a very good receipe, with the leftover bell peppers and bacon pieces I just seasoned it to go with rice. Excellent dish.
This was a great way to cook turkey! The meat was really moist, but a little greasy, I'll be cutting back the oil next time (I only had 3 turkey legs, though).
