Szechuan Stir Fry For Thanksgiving Turkey Leftovers

Szechuan Stir Fry For Thanksgiving Turkey Leftovers

Turkey Day is almost here, and if you’re anything like me then you look forward to the leftovers almost as much as the main event. When you’re tapped out on Thanksgiving sandwiches (I adore them, but maybe there’s a point when it’s time to switch it up), make this for a completely different take on turkey. This recipe is written for using uncooked turkey, but if you’re doing leftover meat that’s already cooked, simply let it marinate for a couple hours as directed for flavor and then add it into the cooked bok choy mixture and cook together for a few minutes at the end. This recipe would also be great with bison, chicken or beef. Serve over rice or on its own for a quick post-holiday dinner.

Szechuan Stir Fry For Thanksgiving Turkey Leftovers - Beck & Bulow

The Perfect Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipe


If you can’t find Szechuan peppercorns, feel free to substitute. They do impart a unique and slightly citrusy flavor, known for the buzzing, tingling sensation created in the mouth rather than “heat”. So if you can find them, get them. But if necessary, simply substitute a mixture of freshly ground black pepper and coriander (grind the coriander seeds fresh for best flavor). Tellicherry pepper is another good substitute if it’s available. This stir fry will turn out delicious either way.


All Natural, Humanely Raised Meat


If you were lucky enough to grab one of our limited supply of Thanksgiving turkeys this year, this is a great way to use some leftover turkey meat after the big feast. Our turkeys come from the same co-op of family farms as our chickens. These birds are humanely raised and never ever given any amount of steroids, hormones or antibiotics. They are never injected with any solutions, brined or altered in any way to make the meat appear more juicy like the techniques so often used on poultry in grocery stores.

Americans & Turkeys: A Thanksgiving Match Made In Heaven

Americans & Turkeys: A Thanksgiving Match Made In Heaven

If you grew up in the United States, the iconic Thanksgiving turkey is pretty much synonymous with the holiday itself. The image of a table adorned with a cornucopia of foods, a turkey roasted to perfection in the center is a staple of American culture. Have you ever wondered why it’s the turkey, of all main courses, that we enjoy on this uniquely American holiday? There’s a few reasons, and it’s not only because they’re delicious. Of course, nowadays there’s so many different ways to celebrate this holiday - the turkey is no longer a must-have. But for many Americans, it remains a tradition rooted in our country’s history that means time spent with loved ones and holiday cheer.

Funnily enough, it’s possible that pilgrims did not have turkey on the first Thanksgiving. Although there were wild turkeys in the area, first-hand accounts from the historic meal make no mention of them - just of “wild fowl”, which could easily mean duck or goose. Perhaps the pilgrims ate turkey on the first Thanksgiving, and perhaps they didn’t - either way, countless Americans have enjoyed turkey on this holiday. These birds are native to North America and have been a valuable food source for humans for millennia. There’s evidence that Native Americans raised turkeys for food as far back as 1000 AD. Turkey hunting, of course, spans back much further.

Turkeys Provide An Abundant Meal


There are plenty of practical reasons that turkeys make sense for Thanksgiving dinner. They’re large enough to feed a crowd, with leftovers on the table for days afterwards. Several chickens would be required to produce the same amount of food, requiring a lot more work. Additionally, chickens are more valuable to keep around because of the number of eggs they produce. Turkey eggs are delicious and nutritious, but they take so long to produce that most farmers don’t bother when they could just keep chickens for the same purpose.

Wild turkeys are a symbol of abundance. They represent all of the blessings bestowed on us from Mother Nature, making these birds especially appropriate for celebrating the autumnal harvest. Turkeys are a type of pheasant and can grow very large - the heaviest one on record weighed in at 86 pounds. When it comes to eating turkeys, there’s a difference depending on whether you have a male or a female bird. The males taste better the more mature they are, while the hens taste better the younger they are. If you’ve ever wondered about that wiggly bit of loose skin on the turkey’s neck, it’s technically called a wattle.


Don’t forget to participate in the tradition of pulling on the wishbone! Simply let it dry, then two lucky loved ones get to hold one end while making a silent wish. Pull the bone apart, and whoever gets the larger portion gets to have their wish come true (according to American folklore). And yes, there’s a scientific reason for why turkey makes you feel sleepy. It contains an amino acid called tryptophan that tells your brain it’s time to relax and take a nap.

If You’d Like A Turkey For 2020, Order Now!


We have a very limited supply of Thanksgiving turkeys this year, with an ordering deadline of November 15th, 2020. These turkeys come from the same co-op of family farms that supplies our chicken. They are humanely raised with care and never given any amount of antibiotics, hormones or steroids. Many turkeys (as well as chickens) are injected with saline solutions or soaked in brines to make the meat appear more plump and juicy. This is never the case with our birds, which are naturally delicious without being altered in any way whatsoever.
