I wished I could've posted this sooner but better late than never. I'm not sure how everyone else cooks their turkey but this is how we've done ours for years and it's always a hit during Thanksgiving because it's very flavorful and JUICY!!! Yep, this turkey is always juicy! And the secret is in the bag.
- But first, there are some preps that need to be done before cooking. The turkey has to be seasoned and marinated at least 24 hours prior to cooking. This will ensure that it absorbs all the flavors. For seasoning, we use salt, soy sauce, oyster sauce, fresh cut cilantro and green onions, fresh ginger, and fresh lemongrass.
- You will need one of these Reynolds Oven bags Turkey Size and a large aluminum foil pan.
- Turn the oven between 350 and 400 degree Fahrenheit.
- Add 1 tablespoon of four inside the bag, close, and shake it. This is prevent it from blowing up.
- Place the turkey inside the bag and seal it with the included tie.
- Poke some holes in the bag and place the pan in the oven.
- Bake for 3 hours and remove the bag. Be careful not to burn yourself with this process.
- Bake for another hour and baste the crap out of that turkey during that hour, lol.
- Please note that depending on the size of your turkey, your cooking time may vary. I don't know how heavy this one was cause my sister's the one who bought it but we had more than enough to feed 5 families and still have left overs.
- I don't know if you can tell from the first picture but the turkey remained juicy during the entire time. When you are ready to serve, carve the turkey in smaller portions and pour some of the left over turkey juice over it so that the meat can soak back the flavors and moisture :D.
An in case you are curious...this is the rest of the foodies we had at the party
