Dutch Oven Boneless Turkey Roast
In the world of hearty, home-cooked meals, few dishes rival the comforting embrace of a perfectly roasted turkey. Today, we’re unveiling a culinary gem – our Dutch Oven Boneless Turkey Roast. It’s a dish that combines simplicity and sophistication to deliver a mouthwatering experience that’s sure to become a cherished part of your family’s table.
At the heart of this recipe is a magnificent 3-pound boneless turkey roast, a canvas ready to absorb the flavors of our aromatic herbs and seasonings. We’ll infuse it with the earthy essence of fresh thyme, the robust aroma of rosemary, and the savory richness of sage. These herbs will not only add depth but create an irresistible fragrance that will fill your kitchen as it cooks to perfection.
To ensure every bite is seasoned to perfection, we’ll generously salt and pepper all sides of the roast. Then, we’ll take our culinary adventure to the stovetop, where a preheated Dutch oven awaits. Searing the turkey roast on all sides in a hot Dutch oven will lock in the juices and set the stage for a beautifully browned exterior.
But the magic doesn’t stop there. After this initial sear, we’ll generously coat our turkey roast with a medley of minced thyme, rosemary, and sage, infusing it with even more flavor. Then, into the preheated oven it goes, where it will gently roast to a succulent 170°F, ensuring a juicy and perfectly cooked centerpiece.
As the aroma fills your kitchen, the anticipation will grow. And when it’s finally time to slice and serve, you’ll discover that the Dutch Oven Boneless Turkey Roast is not just a meal; it’s an experience, a journey of flavor that brings warmth and comfort to your table.
Man That’s Cooking
- 3 pounds boneless turkey roast
- 3 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- 1 sprig fresh sage
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Preheat the dutch oven on a burner on medium heat. Remove the turkey roast from the outside packaging but leave the string net on the roast. Wipe down the roast with a paper towel, then rub it down with vegetable oil. Salt and pepper all sides.
When the dutch oven is heated, sear the turkey roast on all sides for about 2 – 3 minutes per side. After searing, coat all sides of the roast with oil, then minced thyme, rosemary and sage. Place the dutch oven without the lid in the preheated oven and cook for 60 – 90 minutes or until the roast reaches 170 F.
Remove the turkey roast and transfer it to a cutting board. Allow the roast to rest for 10 minutes uncovered. While the turkey is resting, prepare the gravy by transferring the juices from the dutch oven into a measuring cup.
Add water until you have 1 3/4 cups of liquid. Pour this liquid back into the Dutch oven along with the gravy packet and bring everything to a boil. When the gravy reaches a boiling point, reduce the heat to a medium low and stir with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula removing the fond from the bottom of the Dutch oven. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the gravy is thickened.
