Ingredients

  • pepper (to taste)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 turkey leg (boneless)
  • 50 grams bread (day old)
  • 50 milliliters olive oil
  • 1 onion (large, chopped)
  • 200 grams minced beef
  • 100 grams minced pork
  • 1 chicken bouillon
  • 50 milliliters soy sauce
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 boiled egg
  • 200 grams chestnuts (cooked and peeled)
  • 3 steaks (turkey, not too thin)

Directions

  1. In a bowl, add beer, orange juice, lemon juice, orange peel, lemon peel, 1 minced garlic clove, salt, and pepper. Pour the marinade on the turkey leg, cover the bowl, and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.
  2. Cut the bread into pieces, put it in a bowl, and cover with water.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a pan, add 1 clove of minced garlic and onion. Fry until the onion starts to soften (about 10 minutes).
  4. Add the minced meat, stir, and cook for another 10 minutes.
  5. Squeeze out the bread, mix with chicken broth, soy sauce, and pepper. Add to pan with the meat, and cook for about 2 more minutes.
  6. Chop the egg and nuts coarsely.
  7. Add to the meat, and mix with a spoon. Set aside.
  8. Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
  9. Place the turkey leg on a work surface. Pour the filling on top, and cover with turkey steaks. With a needle and thread, sew the steaks to the leg, to prevent the filling from coming out.
  10. Place the stuffed leg, with the seam down, on a baking tray greased with olive oil.
  11. Rub the leg with the olive oil, and cover it with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  12. Bake for about 1 hour.
