Kalua Turkey Lettuce Wraps
If you’re a fan of kalua pig – you know that pig that gets cooked in the ground at Hawaiian luaus – then you may want to try its healthier cousin, kalua turkey. This version basically tastes like roast turkey with a very nice smoky aroma and taste.
KALUA TURKEY PREPARATION
At the market, find a pack of frozen turkey hindquarters (thigh and drumstick part of the turkey). Disjoint the pieces so it fits in your crock pot. Season with salt and about 1 tablespoon of liquid smoke.
Slow cook on high for about 5 hours (or low for 8 to 10 hours) – or until meat falls off the bone. When your turkey is done, skim off the fat from the broth, discard the skin, and shred up your ready to eat juicy meat.
THE LETTUCE WRAP PART
Put some hoisin sauce on to your lettuce leaf. Place some kalua turkey on to that and finally add some sliced green onions to finish it off. Enjoy!
