Ground Turkey that Tastes Like Ground Beef

  • By Christie Fletcher
  • All You’ll Want
  • The best ground turkey
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Sea Salt
  • Different spices (your selection)
  • A grill skillet or an outdoor grill is available.
  • cooking spray
  • turkey burger. This is a favorite.

To make the ground turkey into a real burger, you must know how to cook it. It is easy to disguise ground turkey in main meals like spaghetti. Tomato sauce and other ingredients will mask its true nature. These steps will help you make the turkey burgers without it drying out. Use your spices to give them a beefy taste.

Step 1

Start the outdoor grill. It’s fine to use charcoal, but adding wood chips adds a nice taste. Using the grill, you can make the turkey more beefy by adding a smoky barbecue aroma.

Step 2

Then, using your fingers, mix the turkey meat with Worcestershire. This is the extra ingredient that can make a difference to flavor. Add additional spices to taste. You must add some salt and pepper. Garlic, onion, and chili powders are also good. Remember to add more spices than what you would normally use on beef.

Step 3

The ground turkey should be formed into small patties. They fall apart more easily on the grill or skillet if made too large because turkey, due to its lower fat content, has less moisture than beef.

Step 4.

After spraying the surface with cooking spray and placing your turkey patties on it, place them over the heat. The turkey burgers should be turned frequently for the best results. But do not force the cakes down using a spatula. It is common for people to make this mistake. All it does, however, is squeeze out the juices! You cannot cook a “medium rare” turkey like beef. You can’t. Here, the trick is to avoid overcooking or undercooking it. It would be best if you kept a watchful eye. It’s also not a good idea to cut it into checking whether it’s ready. It also causes you to lose all-natural juices.

Step 5

This is the final product.
It would be best if you cooked them until the color turns golden. Burgers must be firm. Removing it from heat for at least 5 minutes is best so the juices have time to set in. It is now ready to be cut into if you need to check if it’s cooked long enough. Then you can put it back in the oven if it’s not cooked enough. Doing this several times will become a habit, and you can tell by the look of your food when you are done.
