    1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Brown both sides of the turkey steaks, about 3 minutes per side; remove and keep warm.
    2. In the same pan, cook the onion, garlic and mushrooms until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, herbs, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and place the turkey breasts in the sauce. Reduce the heat and simmer gently until the turkey breasts are cooked through, about 12 minutes.

    This is an easy recipe, and a tasty dish. I was looking for a good turkey steak / fillet recipe to lessen my dependence on chicken (!) and this worked out very well. The only change I made was using green peppers instead of mushrooms (to keep my non-mushroom-fan children happy). I'll definitely make this again, so thank you for sharing it.  -  10 Apr 2016


    I thought for ease and speed, this was very good. Low fat, and low carbs is good for husband and myself as we are both trying to avoid too much of both. I used sage, rosemary, marjoram, thyme and parsley to make up the 1 1/2 tsp of herb. We had green beans on the side; a good compliment. It made up four servings, so we froze half, and the meal was even tastier at the end of the week. Five stars and going into my recipe keepers file.  -  04 Sep 2016
