Barbecue Turkey

Updated: Jun 24


1 pounds turkey thighs, skinned

1/4 cup catsup

1 tablespoons dry red wine or water

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring (optional)

Dash ground cloves

Dash garlic powder

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon cold water


Rinse turkey; pat dry. Place in a 10x6x2-inch baking dish with meaty portions toward edges of the dish.

In a mixing bowl combine catsup, wine or water, brown sugar, lemon juice, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, liquid smoke (if desired), cloves, and garlic powder. Pour over turkey.

Cover dish with vented microwave-safe plastic wrap. Cook on 100% power (high) for 15 to 20 minutes or until turkey is tender and no longer pink, turning turkey over and giving dish a half-turn once. Transfer turkey to a serving platter, reserving cooking liquid.

For sauce, place cooking liquid in a 2-cup measure; skim fat. If necessary, add water to cooking liquid to equal 1 cup. Combine cornstarch and 1 tablespoon cold water. Stir into cooking liquid.

Cook, uncovered, on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly, stirring after every 30 seconds. To serve, slice turkey and spoon sauce atop slices.

Makes 4 servings.
