At Thanksgiving time, most people cook a turkey. That’s pretty standard. But what isn’t standard is the brand of oven in everyone’s home. That’s why I used a weekend leading up to the holiday to test out the same 7 LB turkey breast, seasoned the same way and at the same time, in 3 different ovens in the showroom: the Viking Turbo Chef, the GE Profile Series 30 in. Combination Double Wall Oven with Convection and Advantium® Technology, and the Jenn-Air® 27″ Built-In Microwave Oven with Speed-Cook.
We’re in the countdown to Thanksgiving and the showroom has been filled with the rich aromas of the holiday. This week’s recipe is an adaptation of one made especially for the GE Monogram Built-In Oven with Advantium® Speedcook Technology. This recipe is great to use with leftover cooked turkey from Thanksgiving, but I swapped in ground turkey to give it more of a meatloaf consistency.
If you saw Chef Vance’s recent bacon jam recipe, you would have seen his recommendation to use it as a burger topper. This week, he incorporated it into a marinade for a zesty pork loin. As you start thinking about your Thanksgiving menu, consider serving pork as an alternative (or add-on) for those who don’t like turkey. This versatile meat can be slow roasted and sliced thin just as you would the turkey. Keep reading for Vance’s method, his quick potato prep and feedback about baking it in the Sharp Super Steam Oven.
