Tangerine glazed grilled turkey pastrami

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My take on the classics - turkey pastrami... This time I paired it with a Chinese-inspired glaze based on one of my favorite citrus fruits - the tangerine. 

 

 

So, ingredients...

 

1 whole turkey breast, skinless and boneless, about 6-7lb

 

Rub:

  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sweet paprika
  • 3 tbsp coarse or sea salt
  • 3 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp onion powder or granulated onion
  • 2 tsp garlic powder or granulated garlic
  • 2 tsp ground celery seeds

 

Injection solution:

 

  • ½ cup tangerine juice
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 1 tbsp Cointreau liquor

 

Glaze:

 

  • ½ cup tangerine juice
  • ½ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 5 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4-5 strips of tangerine zest
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, smashed with a side of the cleaver
  • 3-4 scallions (white parts only), smashed with a side of the cleaver
  • 1 cinnamon stick

 

The meat was cured in the spice rub overnight, in the fridge... then, before cooking, I injected it with the mixture of tangerine juice, water and Cointreau.  

 

Glaze - mixed all the ingredients in the bowl, brought to boil and reduced until thick and syrupy. 

 

Grilling - indirectly, over medium heat (325-350F), for about 1.5-2 hours, till internal temperature of 165F. During the last 30 minutes of grilling brush the pastrami with the glaze 4-5 times. 

 

Let rest, slice ... and enjoy :).

This sounds great have you tried this with whole chicken? I have 10 or so tangerine trees but turkey is not real big here.Maybe it is time to raise some. LOL

Hey dandl93

 

Thanks!!!

 

Sure! Whole chicken, chicken quarters, chicken thighs... all works good. The glaze is delicious and blackens the skin of the chicken nicely.

 

Try it, you'll love this!
