How to make Turkey steaks with ginger sauce and potatoes

1.Place peeled and chopped sweet potato (or regular potatoes) in a saucepan of cold water. Bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain. Heat the pan over medium heat. Spray or splash with oil. Add cumin. Cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until aromatic. Add the sweet potato. Use a fork or masher to mash.

2. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Spray or splash with a with little oil. Cook turkey steaks for 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked through.

3. Transfer to a plate. Reduce heat to medium. Add ginger and lemon rind. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic.

4. Add stock, lemon juice and honey. Combine water and cornflour or flour in a bowl. Stir into stock mixture in the pan. Keep stirring whilst you bring it to boil. Simmer, stirring, for 3 minutes or until it thickens slightly. Add turkey. Cook for 1 minute or until heated through.

5. Divide mash, turkey and steamed or leftover vegetables (reheated quickly in the pan with the sauce) among serving plates. Top with extra sauce from the pan.



Can also serve this with rice or noodles instead of mash. Can also add regular gravy (granules mixed with hot water) instead of the ginger stock mixture if you want a more traditional Christmas taste.
