What is a turkey steak? Turkey steaks are boneless and skinless fillets of turkey breast that have been cut and sliced to resemble the size and shape of the steak. They are an excellent source of lean white meat protein for people looking for a low-fat meat option. Turkey breast meat has a mild flavor that's perfect for marinades because they take on these flavors so well, and it helps keep the heart moist. This easy-to-follow recipe uses Ginger and Soy sauce in an Asian-inspired marinade cooked into a delicious sauce for dipping or drizzling. Enjoy our Grilled Turkey Steak at your next cookout for a lean protein option. You may also pair it with mashed potato. Try our recipe, How to make Mashed Potatoes without Milk.

How long do you grill turkey steaks?

It can take anywhere from 15-25 minutes to cook a turkey steak depending on how thick the steaks are. 

What temperature do you grill turkey steaks?

Set the grill to medium-low heat; cooking them at a slightly lower temperature will ensure a moist turkey steak that is perfectly cooked. 

How do you know when turkey steaks are done?

You can tell when turkey steaks are done by using a thermometer, and inserting the probe into the thickest part of the steak. The temperature should read a minimum of 165 F. If you don't have a probe, simply cut the thickest part of the steak with a knife checking that the steak is no longer pink and the juices from the turkey run clear.  

Can you grill turkey meat?

Yes, you can grill turkey meat. If using whole legs or breasts its best to wrap them in foil to cook them on the grill. Since whole cuts of turkey can take as long as 1 1/2 hours to cook, wrapping them in foil will slowly cook them without running the chance of burning the meat. Remove the foil for the last 10-15 minutes to crisp up and grill the skin.

Mix the green seasoning, honey, lime juice, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, and white pepper in a small bowl.
Coat and rub the turkey with the mixture and place it into a bowl or food container.
Add enough water to the bowl to submerge the turkey and leave it to marinate for at least 1 hour overnight in the fridge will add more depth of flavor.
Warm a griddle pan or grill on medium to high heat and brush with cooking oil or spray.
Once the grilling surface is hot, place the marinated turkey breasts onto the hot surface and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side flipping over using a pair of tongs.
The turkey steaks will be fully cooked when the inside is no longer pink and raw.
While the turkey is grilling, place the marinade into a saucepan, cook for 5 minutes, and then season to taste. If the sauce is too salty, add some honey to taste.
Remove the cooked turkey steaks from the grill and place them on a serving dish.
Serve warm with your choice of side dish and use the sauce for dipping or to drizzle over the meat and enjoy.
