Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium to medium-high heat, add the butter and melt into the oil. Add the thyme, celery, garlic, bay leaf, onions, bell peppers and some salt and pepper. Cook partially covered until tender, 15 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir a couple of minutes. Add the bourbon, and then the stock. Reduce the heat a bit to thicken. Stir in the hot sauce, Worcestershire, sugar, vinegar and tomato sauce. Add the turkey and okra, simmer to thicken and combine. Then serve or cool and store for a make-ahead meal. Reheat over medium heat.
  2. Serve in shallow bowls topped with scoops of rice or crackers and scallions.

Cook’s Note

To roast turkey breasts when it's not Thanksgiving time, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Rub the skin of the whole turkey breast with butter or oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until temperature reads 165 degrees F on thermometer (1 hour for boneless and 75 to 90 minutes for bone-in). Let rest covered with foil.
