Tomato Turkey Bake - Summer Turkey Recipe Challenge - #leanonturkey

A Turkey is not just for Christmas!

"Turkey breast is naturally a low fat meat and it's also low in salt and saturated fat. Turkey is also a great source of key nutrients for health, such as the B-vitamins, phosphorus, selenium and potassium and rightfully deserves a place in a varied and balanced diet"
                                                                                     "Carrie Ruxton"

I was just having a quick late night browse over at Britmums and I noticed this challenge and could not resist entering in my Tomato Turkey bake which I made a few days ago. It was delicious, juicy and more importantly to me at the moment, healthy!

It is super simple and can be made in under 30 mins
Perfect for a midweek meal.

Tomato Turkey Bake

Turkey steak ( one for each person)
1 x Red Onion sliced
2 x Vine Tomatoes chopped
1 x Red Pepper sliced
2 Garlic Cloves Crushed
100 ml Beef Stock
1 Tbsp Tomato Puree
Tin of Chopped Tomatoes
1 Ttsp Oregano
Fresh Basil
Cheddar Cheese
Frylight or a little Olive Oil

How to...
Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees.
Bring the Beef Stock to the boil and add the Onion, Pepper and Garlic, 
simmer for 1-2 mins
Add the Vine Tomatoes, Tinned Tomatoes, Tomato Puree and Oregano 
leave to simmer for another 2 mins. Then take off the heat.

Depending on the thickness of your Turkey Steak 
there is only one of two things you need to do:

A thick Turkey Steak should be butterflied in half, just like you would butterfly a chicken breast.
If your Turkey Steak is not very thick, it may not be possible to butterfly so instead pop it into a freezer bag and give it a bash with a rolling pin to thin it out. 
(this is great for stress relief after a long day!)

Having the Turkey Steaks thin means they will cook nice and quickly and wont dry out.

Add some Frylight or a little Olive Oil to a pan and quickly fry the Turkey Steaks to give them a lovely golden colour. 
This should take about 1-2 mins each side.

Then put Turkey Steaks in a baking dish  and pour over the stock mix and finish with a sprinkling of Cheddar Cheese.
Bake in the oven for 15-20mins


Serve with a fresh and crunchy green salad!
