Why I Love This Recipe

Today's questions: Do lamb and turkey go? What to do with the giblets?

I'm terrible with measuring. I just add stuff as I go without measuring in advance when I make up a new recipe. The measurements below are my best guess.

Gluten free if you use gluten free soy sauce. (I don't know if the Japanese rice wine, Mirin, is gluten free so I substituted distilled white vinegar and agave syrup.)

Prep time does not include stock.


Ingredients You'll Need

Turkey Stock (homemade)
Cooked Turkey
Ground Lamb
Fresh Turkey Liver
Shallot
Carrots
Leek

Green Cabbage

Salt
Pepper
Chopped parsley (as garnish)


Directions

Make a turkey stock in advance.


Using 3 quart Heavy Soup Pot:


Meatballs:


Fine dice 1/2 of a turkey liver and soak in milk (an hour soak works well).

Deglaze pot with 1 ladle turkey stock.


Fill pot 1/2 full with additional turkey stock.
