  • 5 lb turkey legs about 2 legs cut 0.5cm / 1/2"thick
  • 1 lime
  • ¼ cup oranges sour
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon garlic chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 1 bouquet garni parsley and thyme
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste

  • Squeeze lime, set aside 2 tablespoon of the lime juice. With lime pieces clean meat by rubbing the pieces all over the meat and add the remaining juice lime also. Make sure the meat is thoroughly cleaned with lime pieces and juice. Rinse meat with cool water, pat dry and place in bowl and set aside.

  • In a Dutch oven or heavy duty pot, add turkey with marinade and bouquet garni. Cook meat first with marinade on low heat. Once water has almost evaporated, add water gradually (1/2 cup intervals – do not add more water than you need) until meat is fully cooked.
