Turkey Stir Fry with Oranges

The new year is upon us, peasants. Doom prefers to say "twenty-twelve." The Accursed Richards says "two thousand-twelve" to convince people he can count that high. Doom knows otherwise. Richards can't count the number of people he sees in the mirror.

Doom's pantry is piled to the hinges with leftovers. Holiday parties, both here at Chez Doom and at the houses of other/wannabe world conquerors, result in food stuffs that could sate the populace of Latveria five times over. Doom's magnificent eyes have never beheld this many sausage balls, for instance. Mayhap these have supplanted the jello salad of past holiday soirees.

Doom is especially burdened with turkey meat, such as that culled from the carcass before the bones are used to make stock. This meat will of course be used for Doom's favorite leftover snack: Tomato and Turkey Rolls (Quick recipe: Place tomato slice and leftover turkey meat in a dinner roll. Lightly salt. Consume. Repeat 14 times.)

But this leftover bounty has ruined Doom's plans for the turkey Doom earlier stored in the freezer. So much baked turkey, while delicious, now seems horrid. Doom is displeased. But Doom as ever knows how to turn this to an advantage.

Turkey Stir Fry with Oranges
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon chili oil
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 pound of turkey meat (breast/tenderloin) sliced into medallions
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup sliced green onion shoots
1 cup dry rice, cooked as directed on package
1 peeled, sliced navel orange

Doom commands you to do the following:

+ Combine sugar, soy sauce, ginger, and chili oil in a bowl. Doom uses peri-peri oil delivered by a loyal minion after a visit to Swaziland. Doom hears you snickering in skepticism. Then behold:

Doom don't lie. Doom only testifies. Tabasco sauce will work too.

+ Dredge turkey in the oil and flour (in a separate dish).

+ Warm cooking oil in a medium-hot pan. Fry turkey for roughly eight minutes, turning once to brown both sides.

+ Prepare the rice.

+ Place turkey on bed of rice and sprinkle with onion shoots and orange slices (navels are seedless, making preparation easier).

The dish shall resemble this:


Doom commands you to savor.
