This turkey is called Pavochon(pah-voe-chon). Pavo which in Spanish means turkey and chon which is short for lechon, which means roast suckling. Its seasoned just like a pernil. Very flavorful. Enjoy
Ingredients: don't forget the sofrito I forgot to take a pic!😒 oh & disregard the picture of the nutmeg. I use the empty jar to store my oregano. Sorry guys for the confusion 😩 I don't use nutmeg!
The star of this show
Lets start by removing the giblets from inside the cavity of the turkey
If you watch my guides you all know i wash my poultry with vinegar. This is what i am doing now.
I pour vinegar inside and outside of my turkey and wash it well. After i clean it with vinegar i give it a good rinse with water
I personally dislike this piece of the turkey, so i will remove it.
See all gone. If you want, discard it or use it to make homemade turkey broth.
Take a sharp knife and start piercing the breast in a few locations. Do this to the entire turkey.
I pulled out my zester and started grating my garlic into a bowl. It is a time saver since i usually like to use my mortar and pestle. This saves me a lot of time.
To my garlic i will add the oregano
The sazon Goya.
The adobo powder
The Knorr Cilantro cube.
The mojo was added to the spice mix at this point.
Some food coloring. I use sazon goya with cilantro and achiote. After adding the coloring give this a good stir.
My turkey is seasoned. I will now cover it in w/ foil & stick it in my fridge for 2-3 days. That's right, a good tasting turkey needs time marinating . So don't season it the same day you cook it🙏
Turkey day is here.It is time to cook this turkey. I took it out of the fridge,removed the foil it was covered in and I inserted it in the oven bag. I than placed it in a roasting pan. Sorry no pics😑
I like cooking my turkey in a plastic oven bag, it keeps it moist and juicy. You should try it once, you might not ever cook turkey w/o it ever again😜. It's quick too. Mine will cook for 3 1/2 hrs
Follow the instruction on the Reynolds brand oven bags. That's what I used.
I removed the juices and let it rest before I carved it. Wow my turkey looks beautiful. He crust is crispy and the meat is moist and juicy.🙌🙌👏💃 success once again
This is the juice the turkey produced we will pour it over the carved turkey!
I carved my turkey. Do you remember that broth I asked you not to discard.? Well I want you to add it over the turkey. Omg it will be out of this world delicious. It will keep the turkey juicy. Enjoy
I hope you will try making my turkey. It is absolutely flavorful and delicious. Leftovers are even better😁 enjoy
