Turkey time people! Gobble Gobble Gobble!
I’m back with a Thanksgiving turkey leg recipe or just an anytime turkey treat. You choose. Turkey legs are perfect for anytime because turkeys are big and you just don’t want or need something that big on any given day!
Sometimes you just have one or two mouths to feed but you still want some turkey. And you can get turkey legs anytime of the year and even with the price hikes on meat, turkey legs are still pretty cheap.
This turkey legs and gravy recipe is a dump and go dish, which I love, but it’s makes a crazy kick-a$$ gravy. Some of the best gravy I’ve had, to be truthful.
You will need an immersion blender or a regular blender. I find the immersion blender is the easiest because you can do it right in the pot, but you gotta do you.
So grab your pressure cooker and let’s get these turkey legs and gravy on the table and into your face. Don’t forget the mashed potatoes!
Instant Pot Turkey Legs and Gravy
- 2-4 turkey legs
- 1 small onion, roughly chopped
- 2 stalks celery, roughly chopped
- 2 carrots, roughly chopped
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon cool water
Roughly chop your veggies. They don't have to be perfect or anything, you'll blend them up anyway.
Add the turkey legs to the pot. Add the broth, the veggies and sprinkle with poultry seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.
Set your pressure cooker to pressure on high for 22 minutes. When the cooking time is done, release the pressure manually. Turn off/press cancel on the pressure cooker.
Set your oven to broil. Carefully remove the turkey legs to a foil-lined baking sheet and place under the broiler until browned and sexy-looking. Keep an eye on them!
While you're broiling your turkey legs, use the immersion blender to blend the liquid and veggies in the pot. Blend until smooth.
If not using an immersion blender, very carefully what's in the pot to a blender and blend until smooth. When smooth, add back to the pressure cooker pot.
Set your pressure cooker to the saute function. Whisk together the cornstarch and cool water to make a slurry. Stir into the pot and cook until desired thickness.
Serve the luscious gravy over your beautiful turkey legs and mashed potatoes!
