One of my favorite meals that always makes me feel like home is stewed turkey necks. I love them served over rice and think it is a great option for a Sunday dinner with family and friends. If you have never had them or don’t know how to make them yourselves, I got help from Rashaunda Grant of Carolina Cookery. Check out this easy recipe for How to Cook Instant Pot Stewed Turkey Necks and add it to your Sunday dinner menu.
Instant Pot Stewed Turkey Necks
1 ½ lbs Turkey Necks
½ cup onion, diced
¼ cup carrot, diced
¼ cup celery, diced
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp seasoned salt
1 bay leaf
1 sprig fresh thyme
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cups Turkey or Chicken broth
2 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsp cold water
Season turkey necks with seasoned salt and set aside
Set Electric Pressure cooker to sauté and add oil. Once hot add seasoned turkey necks and sear on each side for 3-5 mins, then remove from pot.
Add carrots, onion, celery, garlic and sauté for 5 mins until onions are slightly translucent and garlic is fragrant.
Return turkey necks to the pressure cooker, and add thyme, bay leaf and broth.
Change settings from sauté to meat/stew function and cover with pressurized lid. Cook for 30 minutes and then vent to release steam.
In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and water and mix thoroughly to form a slurry.
Add slurry to pot of stewed turkey necks and simmer for 10 mins until liquid becomes thickened gravy.
Serve over rice or potatoes and enjoy!
