Turkey, Corn and Mushroom Niblets (玉米肉末) Recipe

Turkey, Corn and Mushroom Niblets (玉米肉末) Recipe


This is a simple healthy recipe in my Anything-but-Boring-Stir-Fry Series. The original recipe called for ground pork but I used extra-lean ground turkey to bump up the healthfulness even further and I’d probably do the same again because I didn’t miss the pork one bit. I loved the peppery flavor with the hint of sweetness from the fresh corn and great umami from the mushrooms.

This is one versatile recipe I would definitely recommend playing around with, as with pretty much any recipe in this series. Stir-fries are meant to be casual and as long as you follow some basic ground rules, go wild with your imagination, or more realistically, what’s sitting around in the fridge.

The stir-fry commandments:

  • Cut ingredients into the same size. This is for a matching texture and for equal cooking times.
  • Marinate your meats for 10-15 minutes. (Okay, if you’re paying attention, this recipe doesn’t call for marinating but for most stir-fries, marinating is what gets it from boring to fabulous!)
  • Relax and play with it! It’s just a stir-fry for goodness sakes!

A little personal tip on the marinating, I keep the meat just on the counter for the 10-15 minutes while I marinate. Cold meat in a hot pan is just a bad idea. Chances are you’ll end up with an over-cooked surface by the time the inside of the meat is done. Obviously, if you’re gonna marinate it for 2 hours or something, stick it back into the fridge until 15 minutes before cooking, for safety.
