Puerto Rican Stuffed Turkey Legs Recipe
- 4 turkey legs
- 1 cup olive oil
- 2 green bell peppers
- 1 large white onion
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
- 5 slices bacon
- 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
step 1: Make numerous vertical slits in the turkey legs.
step 2: In a small bowl combine the olive oil with the salt, pepper, teriyaki, vinegar and oregano. Thoroughly coat each turkey leg with the mixture.
step 3: Cut onion, green pepper and bacon into small squares, approximately the same size as the slits you cut on the turkey legs. Fill each slit with one piece of pepper, onion and bacon.
step 4: After the legs are stuffed, brown them in the oil mixture all around on medium-high. Lower temperature to low and cover. Cook for 45 minutes or until meat starts to separate from the bone. If the legs dry out when cooking, add a little water to the skillet and lower the temperature.
