I know a number of people enjoyed the Smokey BBQ Turkey Joe recipe I posted from the "New" Rival Crockpot Book, so I thought I might share this variation with them and those who are tofu-inclined.
I took the recipe (shown below) and adapted it for the stovetop, using 16 oz. of firm tofu, drained, rinsed and crumbled. I softened the chopped onion and green pepper for about ten minutes in a Tbsp. of oil, then added everything else, including the crumbled tofu. I simmered it for about a half hour til it was good and thick and there was no liquid remaining.
I had a quick sample in a ww pita and the results were terrific. It had all the flavor of the original crossed with the "creamy" tofu effect of the "Gourmet" Creamy Tofu Salad. I'll probably add a cup of corn, either fresh scraped off the cob, or maybe even TJ's frozen roasted corn, for body and texture later.
Meantime, if any of you have easy access to the popular Moomie's buns, I'd appreciate it if you could put them up for me here!? TIA.
BBQ Turkey Smokey Joes
(Rival's "The New Creative CrockPot")
3 lbs. ground turkey
1 onion finely chopped
1 green pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 - 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tbs. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. liquid smoke
1 Tbsp. Worcerstershire sauce
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
10 onion sandwich rolls, split and toasted
Brown the turkey in a skillet and drain the fat. Place in the crockpot slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients. Stir thoroughly. Cover; cook on Low 8 to 10 hours (or on High for 3 to 4 hours). To serve, spoon turkey and sauce over the rolls.
Makes ten servings.
EDITED TO ADD: "For a 5,6, or 7 qt. cooker, double all ingredients except the ketchup, sugar and vinegar."
Here ya go!
These buns are great - I use our King Arthur bun pans and have never had a failure yet - yummy! The are good with part WW Flour as well.
Moomie's Beautiful Burger Buns
1 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 1/4 cups flour*
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon instant yeast
*Ed. Note: We think King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose is a good choice, naturally!
Place all ingredients in your bread machine. Select dough. Allow to run cycle.
Dump out onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 8 pieces. With each piece, slap into a bun shape. Usually four or five slaps will do it. Place on greased cookie sheets or your bun pans, cover; rise about 30 to 40 minutes.
Bake in preheated 375įF oven for 12 to 15 minutes till golden. Cool on wire racks. I like to add a teaspoon of onion powder and about 1/2 teaspoon dried onion to the dough in the bread machine. It makes a light onion-y flavor that is wonderful!
When I do these for burgers, I split the bun, butter, and fry in a skillet till brown. Yummy! They make great sandwich buns too! Nice and soft! You canít go wrong with this recipe!
Thanks for posting the recipe for me!
