Preparation of turkey ham in foil:

Step 1: prepare the brine.

In order to bake meat, first of all, it must be soaked in brine so that it turns out juicy and very tasty. Therefore, pour into a deep pan 1 liter ordinary cold water and pour 4 tablespoons salt. We mix everything well until a homogeneous liquid is formed without salty sediment.

Step 2: prepare the turkey breast.

Thoroughly wash the turkey breast under running water and put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, we clear meat from veins, films and fat.

Now carefully lay out the main component in a pot with a solution and leave to insist for 2 - 3 hours. After the allotted time, drain the liquid, and rinse the brisket well under running water. Then wipe it dry with kitchen paper towels and spread in a medium bowl.

Step 3: prepare the garlic.

Using a knife, peel the garlic from the husks and then rinse slightly under running water. We spread the cloves on a cutting board and cut lengthwise into pieces. The crushed component is moved to a free saucer.

Step 4: prepare the paste for pickling.

Pour black pepper, paprika, coriander seeds, ground basil, oregano, ground red pepper into a deep bowl to taste, and add vegetable oil and mustard. Using a tablespoon, thoroughly mix all the ingredients until a homogeneous mass is formed.

Step 5: marinate the turkey breast.

We spread the turkey breast again on the cutting board and with the tip of the knife we ​​make cuts deep into the meat no more than 2 - 3 centimeters. Now we stuff the component with garlic and then paste on all sides. We put the breast back in a bowl, cover with a lid from the pan and put in the refrigerator to marinate for a day.

Step 6: cook the turkey pork in foil.

When the turkey breast is well marinated, we take it out of the refrigerator and transfer it to the center of a long piece of food foil. We wrap the meat so that air does not get inside and subsequently we were able to gently unfold the dish, which is baked already without foil. Now we put everything on a baking sheet and put the boiled pork in the oven, which is well preheated to a temperature 250 ° C. Bake meat for 35 minutes.

In 10 minutes until ready, with the help of kitchen tacks we take out a baking sheet and carefully unfold the foil with a fork. This must be done so that the brisket is covered with a golden crust. We put the container back in the oven and continue to cook the dish until the end of the allotted time. After that, turn off the oven, do not open its door, and leave the boiled pork to cool to room temperature there.

Step 7: serve the turkey pork in foil.

With kitchen tongs, we transfer the boiled pork from turkey to a special flat plate, using a knife we ​​cut into portioned pieces and can serve to the dining table.

This meat goes well with side dishes such as buckwheat, mashed potatoes, stewed rice, and is also used to make sandwiches with fresh vegetables and lettuce.
Good appetite!
