Breaded and sautéed ground turkey patties simmered in a sweet and sour sauce with onion, celery, bell pepper and pineapple.
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon white wine or white distilled vinegar
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
2 celery ribs, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 (8-ounce) can pineapple chunks or tidbits
- In a bowl, mix together ground turkey, dry bread crumbs, and garlic salt. Form into patties, each about 3/4-inch thick. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the burgers for about 3 minutes on each side, or until browned.
- In a bowl, combine chicken broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar, vinegar, and white pepper. Pour mixture over burgers and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat; add sliced celery ribs, sliced onion, and sliced green bell pepper. Simmer, covered, for 6 minutes. Add pineapple and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
