Marinated Manti Turkey

 If you've ever been to the Manti Pageant then you have most likely tried Manti Marinated Turkey. There is no better way to eat turkey than Manti style! I can still smell the turkey barbequing on the grill in the warm summer air as the sun goes down and the pageant gets closer to beginning. Making this recipe brought back so many memories, especially having family from there.

I like to BBQ mine on the charcoal grill. There is nothing better than the smell of burning charcoal and sizzling meat in the summer breeze. This really will make your neighbors hungry. Enjoy!

Marinated Manti Turkey
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 12 oz 7-up
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp horseradish ( I like to use the creamy sandwich spread kind)
Stir together in large metal bowl. Cut up turkey into large pieces and place in marinade and cover. Refrigerate overnight (8 hours). Barebeque when ready. 

Marinated Manti Gravy

So what to do with all that leftover marinade? Don't throw it away. I put mine in a saucepan and add 1 - 2 Tbsp of cornstarch. Whisk it until dissolved then turn on the heat to medium high. Bring to a boil while constantly stirring and then remove. Gravy will thicken as it cools. You can serve it over your turkey or I like to serve it over creamy sour cream and garlic mashed potatoes. So yummy!
