Turkey Meatloaf Steam Baked

This is a Combi Steaming recipe which is a Convection Steam.

When meatloaf is made with lean meats such as turkey it can be formed into a roll and cooked directly on a baking pan with a side of vegetables for an easy one dish meal. Because turkey is so lean it’s best to use dark meat.

May 16 - 2021-58.jpg


1 - small yellow onion, finely chopped

2 - cloves, garlic minced

1 - carrot, finely diced

6 - cremini mushrooms, finely diced

½ - teaspoon mixed Italian seasoning

1 ¼ - lbs dark ground turkey meat

¼ - cup breadcrumbs

1 - egg, lightly beaten

¾ - cup ketchup or BBQ sauce

½ - teaspoon Kosher salt

Ground pepper


Saute the onions over moderate heat for a few minutes then stir in the garlic and cook for a few minutes. 

Stir in the carrots, mushrooms and Italian seasoning and cook covered with a little water or stock until the carrots have softened, about 8 - 10 minutes.

Heat the oven to Combination Convection Steam 350 degrees.

Combine the turkey, breadcrumbs, egg and ½ cup of the ketchup or BBQ sauce and season with the salt and pepper.

Stir in the cooked vegetables and place the mixture on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment.

Shape the mixture into a long thin log and brush with the remainder of the ketchup or BBQ sauce.

Toss the vegetables with a little oil and arrange on the baking sheet next to the turkey.

Allow approximately 35 - 40 minutes to cook the turkey and 10 minutes for resting before slicing.

Serves 4 - 6

BBQ Pulled Turkey

Turkey pieces slowly braised in a homemade BBQ sauce then pulled off the bone and served with cornbread or soft rolls is a delicious easy dish to prepare and a perfect dish for entertaining. This dish can be cooked covered in Convection or uncovered in the Steam oven.

The homemade BBQ sauce is also key to achieving great flavor with this recipe so begin by preparing the BBQ sauce and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, season the turkey pieces and set them aside to absorb the flavors. Even though the skin is discarded when shredding the turkey, braising the turkey with the skin on does add to the fat content but most importantly it adds great flavor.

For the BBQ sauce

2 tbsp butter + 1tbs oil

1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Combine the following ingredients

3/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

¾ cup ketchup

1 Tbsp tomato paste

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp dry mustard powder

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 cup water

For the turkey

2 bone-in turkey thighs or a combination of bone-in  leg and thigh or leg and breast

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp pepper

1 Tbsp chipotle chili in adobo sauce (optional)


A large oven-safe pan or Dutch oven is ideal for preparing the sauce then you can just put the turkey pieces into the sauce and transfer the pan to the oven. Otherwise, prepare the sauce in an oven safe casserole, and add the turkey pieces.

Saute the onions in the butter and oil over moderate heat until softened. Stir in the garlic and cook gently for a few minutes then add the remaining sauce ingredients that you have combined. Simmer over a gentle heat for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, season the turkey pieces with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside.

Heat the oven, Convection Bake 325F (163C) or Steam Braising 325F (163C). 

Add the turkey pieces to the BBQ sauce and stir in the Chipotle Chili pepper if using. These peppers add a wonderful touch of smokey heat to the sauce. Place the pan in the oven (covered if using Convection) and cook for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is very tender and easily falls off the bone.

In order to “pull” the turkey remove the pieces from the hot sauce and set aside to cool. Remove the skin, discard the bones and shred the meat by hand or with a fork and knife. Return to the pulled turkey to the sauce and reheat if needed before serving.

Serves 4 - 6
