Barb’s BBQ Turkey Breast Recipe

Looking for an alternative to a large roast turkey for Thanksgiving or Sunday Dinner, this recipe is perfect for those occasions when you want turkey and just want enough for delicious sandwiches leftover. It is so delicious and very suitable for serving company.


I created this recipe after seeing turkey cold cuts in the store covered in spices & thought I can do better & without nitrates


1   large fresh turkey breast (1.5kg/3lb)

Rub with:

1 tblsp sunflower oil

2 tsp Curry Powder

1 tsp ground Coriander

1 tsp Paprika (smoked if desired)

Fresh ground pepper

½ cup sweet onion salad dressing

2 or more sundried tomatoes (I use organic sulphite-free)


Blend together Onion salad dressing & sundried tomatoes. Baste Turkey breast with mixture. Maintain hot BBQ with burner directly under Turkey breast turned off. On my BBQ it took 2 hours to cook with 2 burners on high & 2 turned off.

Variation: If using boneless turkey breast make extra sundried tomato mix spread on flattened breast roll up & tie with butcher twine. Using either version check with meat thermometer to avoid over-cooking.

Super Saturday BBQ

I would be a poor Flexitarian if I didn’t include an occasional beef recipe. I have set a target of once a month for beef. My son’s are coming home soon and won’t be entirely happy about this. When we have beef it is going to be really good! My oldest son will love this steak recipe I developed after he went out west.  For Derek and all you beef lovers here’s a really good one.

Flank Steak- Korean Style


1 tblsp. Costco Chicago Chicken seasoning blend

(our favourite, or sub steak blend spice mix)

¼ cup Soya sauce/ or Tamari sauce

1 tblsp. honey

1 tsp. crushed chili  flakes

2  large cloves garlic chopped

2 tsp. sesame oil (toasted) or sub olive oil

bunch chives (snip with scissors ½ in. pieces)

2 lbs or 1kg flank steak

Sea salt (Fleur de Sel) if available (adds a special touch)


1. Prepare meat by cutting thin grooves in meat in a diamond pattern before marinating. Allow meat to sit covered at room temp for 15 min. or so to remove chill.  In a shallow dish combine seasoning, soya or temari sauce, honey, crushed chili flakes, garlic, sesame oil, chives, and a drizzle of vegetable oil. Marinate for 10-15 min. maximum.

2. Preheat BBQ to High.  Preheat your BBQ grill pan. Add meat and cook 5 min. on each side for med. rare, 7- 8 minutes for medium-well doneness.

3. Let meat rest 5 minutes prior to serving. Thinly slice the meat against the grain Serve with Fleur de Sel and a garnish of chives.

Decidedly Delicious! Unbelievable with garlic mashed potatoes.
