I received a Jennie-O turkey post roast for purposes of review. All opinions here, however, are my own
So a couple of months ago, I made a toss-off comment in a Dominick’s deals post about “what the heck is turkey pot roast?”
Well, now I know! Look what showed up on my doorstep this morning, courtesy of the nice folks at Jennie-O, who read my post and wanted to spread the word. 🙂
This was fortuitous, because I didn’t have dinner plans for the evening yet. So, I opened one up…
And I cooked it… and I pulled out the bone per package directions…
And I shredded it…
And we ate it! Easy-peasy. You can oven cook or microwave this. I opted for the oven method — it’s pre-cooked, so only takes an hour — and it shredded easily and made the house smell like Thanksgiving.
Yes, but how did it taste?
This is dark meat, which isn’t Mr. Mashup Mom’s favorite. He pronounced it: “OK, I’d eat it again.” The boys pronounced it: YUMMY. I pronounced it: Pretty darn good. They have a nice recipe on the back for making turkey tortilla soup with the leftovers, which I may try if there are enough left. (Or just eat it for lunch tomorrow. Decisions, decisions.)
So there you go
Am I the only one who had never heard of this?
