Chef Tips

Some supermarkets carry turkey steaks or cutlets. These are pre-packaged slices of breast  that resemble skirt steak. But if you can’t find them, you can ask your butcher to cut some for you or, you can make the recipe with half a large turkey breast cut lengthwise into 4-6 roughly 5ounce slices.
