Sticky honey soy turkey

We found this recipe a little while ago and it’s just fab – low fat, quick to cook and also not very expensive! So it’s great all round 🙂 It’s becoming one of our new favourites!

Ingredients (serves 4)


1 tablespoon vegetable oil
420g turkey steaks, cut into 1cm strips against the grain of the meat
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger / pinch ground ginger
Roughly 250g green beans, cooked (frozen are fine)
300g cooked rice to serve




1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the turkey strips for 4-5 minutes until golden and cooked through. Removed from the pan and keep warm.


2. Add a tiny splash of oil in the pan and add the garlic and ginger. Cook for around 1 minute stirring frequently so it’s cooked and soft but not brown or burned.


3. Add the honey and soy sauce to the pan and stir well over a medium heat. Simmer gently for around 2 minutes so it reduces slightly.


4. Return the turkey to the pan and mix it well so it’s all coated with the sauce. Add a splash of hot water if you think it’s too dry. Finally stir through the green beans and serve with rice (or noodles, like we did!).


Enjoy! 🙂
