If you’ve ever had turkey necks before, you’ll know that they can sometimes be a little bit tough if you don’t cook them correctly. If you deep fry them, then it’s usually no problem and they’ll be delicious!
However, if you stew, or braise them, then the key is a long cooking time with lots of liquid. At minimum, you’ll want to cook them on low for at least a couple of hours. If the liquid starts to get boiled off, add another cup or two so that your turkey necks are mostly immersed.
An ideal way to do this is in a slow cooker, although a pressure cooker can get the job done far more quickly. The stovetop works well too.
A common question that people have is if we have a recipe for cooking turkey necks in the oven. As with cooking them on the stove on in a slow-cooker, the key is liquid. Here’s a simple method:
The length of time turkey necks require vary with your cooking method, ranging from a few minutes to 8 hours.
If you deep fry them, it’ll just take a few minutes. Of course, you have to heat up the oil and then clean-up can be a little bit time consuming.
A pressure cooker is the next fastest, and you can get the job done in under an hour. On the stove will take you a couple of hours, and in the oven, 3-4.
Finally, you may want to use a slow cooker, which will take 6-8 hours. It’s the longest, but also the most hands off method.
What’s the best? It really is up to you, but please remember to not cut the cooking time short in order to have the best results in terms of tender, falling off the bone meat.
