The Instacart guide to turkey stew meat


About turkey stew meat

Turkey stew meat comes pre-cut into cubes, ready for cooking in your favorite stew recipe. The chunks will be approximately 1-inch thick. Most turkey stew meat comes from the thigh and leg portions of the bird. Turkey breast doesn't take well to stewing and enjoys much better success as a roast. 

Your grocer normally breaks down the bird into smaller cuts for sale. You'll find a whole or half turkey breast, turkey legs, thighs, and necks packaged neatly for sale. The breast may have the bone in, but you'll almost always find the remaining cuts come with the bone. You'll pay a little more for the pre-cut cubed turkey stew meat than you may for the legs, thighs, and neck, but the de-boning has been done for you. Grocers price the turkey stew meat by the pound and typically package them in 1-, 2-, or 3-pound increments.

More consumers are going green today than ever before. In the turkey realm, green means pasture-raised. If your grocer offers pasture-raised turkey stew meat, you should try it. Pasture-raised turkey is more humane, better for the environment, and many chefs believe it tastes better than your standard farm-raised turkey. Cooks agree that the pasture-raised turkey cooks faster and is healthier than its farmed counterpart. Plus, by purchasing a pasture-raised turkey, you are promoting biodiversity.

Pasture-raised turkey's health benefits stem from the omega-3 fatty acids the birds consume from the chloroplasts of green leaves and algae. The omega-3 is stored in their muscle meat, and scientists link it with a healthy brain and cardiovascular function. These fatty acids can also reduce inflammation and protect against heart disease, cancer, and arthritis.

Turkeys are actually omnivores, which means they eat plants and animals, like humans. While turkeys don't eat cows or pigs, they do eat bugs, worms, mice, and fruits that fall from trees. A turkey's varied diet provides a much more flavorful result when cooked, making those pasture-raised turkeys more desirable.
