Wish me luck! I'm attempting to make my own deli-style sliced turkey breast. Not just roasted turkey breast - but that moist tender turkey breast with the dense yet fine texture that you buy as sliced deli meat.
I have a huge boneless skinless turkey breast half, weighing in at 4 lbs. (LOL...yes, that's right, only half of the breast, and boneless, and it still weighs that much!) It's from a farm raised pastured turkey, not one of our own...but that's another story.
So I've injected the breast half with a water/lemon/garlic/salt solution using a needle like this one
I've roastied the boneless breast using an oven bag to help keep it moist. Now I'm letting it setup overnight in the refrigerator for the juices to settle in the meat. And finally tomorrow, it'll get sliced thin on our food slicer
Will post tomorrow with the results!
