If you're looking for easy turkey steak recipes, you've come to the right place! They are really simple to make, taste amazing, and a much faster alternative to a whole roasted turkey. Learning how to make turkey steaks has been a game changer for me, and I now cook a quick turkey dinner on a regular basis.
Whether you're looking to cook turkey steaks for Christmas or Thanksgiving, or if you're just looking for healthy turkey steak recipes in general, I highly recommend that you cook them in a frying pan, just like how you would cook any other steak.
The steaks can be cooked in a frying pan or skillet, or in an oven, air fryer, BBQ or other appliance. Because they are so thin, they cook within a few minutes, which makes them a quick alternative to cooking a whole turkey breast. You can season them with traditional flavors,
You can buy turkey breast strips in most supermarkets. In the UK, they are available all year around, but in the US and Australia they are more commonly found from October to December, around the holiday season.
Turkey breast steaks: You can buy pre-cut steaks, or use a sharp knife to slice a turkey breast into steaks. If you want to use frozen steaks, you will have to defrost them beforehand.
Two: Heat up the cooking oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Place the steaks in the pan, and make sure to eave a little space between each steak. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the meat is golden brown on the bottom. Then, flip and repeat until it's cooked on the other side. This will take between 5-10 minutes in total.
I love to serve these as a quick and simple roast dinner, with slow cooker green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, mashed sweet potatoes, roasted tenderstem broccoli, garlic parmesan brussels sprouts or sauteed red cabbage.
Marinated turkey steaks: You can use your favorite marinade, either store bought or homemade. You can also make a simple marinade by combining olive oil, lemon juice and and herbs or spices that you like. Sauces like BBQ sauce, sweet chili sauce and teriyaki are also great as marinades.
To make this recipe, all you need is a frying pan or skillet. A cast iron skillet is a great option, as it will sear the surface of the steaks nicely. You can also use a non-stick pan to make sure that the meat doesn't stick to the pan.
Alternatively, slice or dice the meat, and add it to other dishes like casseroles, pasta, salads or soups. You can use sliced turkey instead of chicken in this lemon chicken pasta, or add it to my Mexican casserole.
Step 1: Cut the steaks into small pieces and season with a little salt, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, chopped garlic, Worcestershire sauce and thyme. Mix the seasonings in the meat and let marinate about 30 minutes.
Step 2: In a frying pan, add the olive oil and the sliced onion. Sauté on a medium-low heat until the onion start to turn slightly golden. Add the turkey pieces together with the marinade and cook over medium-low heat about 15 minutes.
These baked Italian turkey steaks are a delicious and easy weeknight dinner option. Tender and moist these flavorful steaks are a simpler alternative to roast turkey. Served with your favorite sides dinner is ready in under 30 minutes!
Baked Italian turkey steaks are a great main dish to make for the holidays if you are cooking for a smaller crowd or just want to make a healthy turkey dinner during the week. Turkey steaks are a more affordable and lighter version of beef steaks and can be served in a similar way as chicken breasts or pork tenderloins. A good source of lean protein, they are a great switch up from making beef or chicken for dinner.
This recipe if very easy and will require just few steps. Pour some balsamic dressing (or any other favorite Italian dressing) in to the bowl. Separate steaks and dip each on in to the dressing. Place steaks to the baking dish.
Sprinkle spices on top and cube the butter and lay on top of turkey steaks. Now, make sure that the oven is nice and hot and place the baking dish right in it to cook. Baked turkey steaks should take no longer that 20 minutes to cook to perfection.
Turkey steaks are boneless turkey breasts cut into thick steaks. They resemble chicken breast fillets, and have a similar taste and texture, but are larger with less fat. These steaks are always boneless and thinner than a whole turkey breast, which makes them so they are much easier to cook, but still have amazing flavor.
Another common preparation method is to cook them with a marinade or sauce. This cut of meat tends to be a little dry, so this is a great way to infuse even more flavor into the meat. In this Italian turkey steaks recipe, I used balsamic dressing to not only give flavor but to help keep these turkey steaks moist and juicy.
If making this recipe on Holidays, use traditional sides like mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, Brussels sprouts or garlic roasted green beans. If just making this baked turkey steaks for dinner, cook some rice or roast seasonal vegetables.
Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave.

Bring the liquid back up to a simmer; this will just take 1-2 minutes. Lower the heat to medium low, cover and continue cooking, at a simmer, for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally and flip the steaks at least 2 times during the cooking time. Uncover the skillet for the last 5 minutes of cooking to thicken the gravy further, if desired.
Use an instant read thermometer to ensure the steaks are at least 165F at the thickest part of the largest piece. If they are not up to temperature, continue cooking for 5-10 minutes and check again.
Loved it! I cooked it with 93% ground turkey and due to weight loss challenge I used only 5G of ghee total in the recipe. Used GF all purpose flour and added some fresh oregano at the end, delicious!!

Turkey in Sauce feature tender turkey steaks cooked in a delicious, refreshing creamy dill sauce with a hint of lemon. Low in fat, simple and easy to make, ready in as little as 20 minutes! You can make it using either turkey breast steaks or leftover turkey (instructions for both included in the post).
This Turkey in Sauce makes a delicious, easy meal perfect for any occasion. This is a Polish-style recipe, with lots of fragrant dill and a touch of sour cream. The sauce is light, made without heavy cream, perfect to pair with delicate turkey breast meat.
2. Tenderize turkey: Cover with plastic wrap and using a rolling pin beat each steak lightly and briefly (avoiding making the meat too thin). The aim is to tenderize the steaks, not to flatten them further.
3. Sear turkey: In a large shallow pan heat 1.5 tablespoons of oil, add the turkey and cook for about a minute on each side over a medium/high heat until lightly browned (the meat should NOT be cooked through at this point). You will probably need to do this in 2 batches. Remove the meat from the pan and place in a large bowl while you make the sauce.
6. Finish sauce: Add the mustard, white pepper, sour cream and whisk in until smooth and creamy. Add the dill and lemon zest and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Pour the turkey juices (which will have collected in the bottom of the bowl) into the sauce and stir to combine. If the sauce is too thick add a bit more stock.
7. Finish cooking: Add the seared turkey steaks, coat in the creamy sauce, cover and cook for 2 minutes or until the meat is fully cooked (no longer pink inside). Be careful not to overcook the meat. Serve immediately.
These turkey cutlets in creamy sauce are delicious with boiled or mashed potatoes or rice. If you are serving it around Thanksgiving or Christmas most leftover vegetable sides (such as mashed rutabaga, braised carrots and red cabbage) would also work well.

First, prep the meat by seasoning the turkey steaks with salt and pepper. You can also use different seasonings to your preference. Then, place the steaks into the air fryer basket. Make sure that they are overlapping as little as possible so the air can circulate through the basket best. If you need to, split the meat into two batches and cook them that way to avoid overlapping.
