Barbecuing before football games is a fun tradition. You could make this at a tailgate party or make on your backyard grill before you start the game. This is a famous meal served at the Manti Pageant, but I fondly remember it as Val Draper’s Famous Grilled Turkey. I am sure his recipe was a bit different than mine, but it brings me a smile when I remember him telling me how he was excited to be planning to make it for a big family dinner.
Manti Barbequed Turkey
2-3 pounds Turkey Breast 1 Cup Soy Sauce 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil 1 Can 7-Up or Sprite (12 oz.) 1 Tablespoon Horseradish
1 Tablespoon Minced Fresh Garlic
Prepare turkey by cutting the breast tender in half the long direction, so that you have two long pieces. In a large Zip lock bag combine ingredients. Allow turkey to marinate 6 to 24 hours.
Heat barbeque grill to medium heat. Cook turkey until 165 degrees or approximately 10-15 minutes per side. Use a thermometer to double check temperature. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Slice across the grain of the meat to serve.
This marinate is also great with Chicken Breasts.
