Turkey stew, a delicious recipe to incorporate the menu of the week

Nothing more comforting than a stew for the winter and richer with the flavor of grandma’s roast. I share this extraordinary recipe for turkey stew that also serves to vary our menu a bit. Perfect for a family weekend.


  • 1k turkey stew
  • 2 medium white onions
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or whatever they have.
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons of ají amarillo paste
  • 2.5 to 3 cups of cooking water
  • Salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cold butter (optional)


Season the turkey and seal it in a thick-bottomed pot. Then, add the vinegar to lift the flavors of the pot, remove the turkey and reserve. In the same pot, cook the onion with a little vegetable oil, roughly cut into four. Then add salt to make it sweat and lower the heat to medium high. Add the garlic, tomato, bay leaf and cook for a few minutes. Then add the yellow pepper and cook for a few more minutes. Then add the vinegar, the soy sauce, the rosemary, the turkey, two cups of water and the carrots (cut large).

Raise the heat until it reaches boiling temperature, then lower the heat to medium and cook for approximately 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, covered. (You can add the carrot 20 minutes before the stew is ready, so that it is firmer. Add a little more water if necessary). Remove the turkey and carrot and strain the sauce, crushing with the help of a ladle, to get all the juices and flavors out. Return everything to the pot and heat. Off the heat, add a teaspoon of cold butter to give the dish body and shine. Serve and enjoy accompanied by cassava or a delicious gardener rice and a salad or vegetable garnish.

PS: in this same way we prepare the roast at home, but we cook it for a couple of hours and we add water little by little each time it is required.
