To add flavor to dark turkey meat, David Chang simmers it in a deeply savory combination of brown sugar and soy sauce. Cooking jasmine rice with rendered turkey fat adds a wonderful richness. The topping—pickled shallot rings—adds a pretty pink color and piquancy.    More Uses for Turkey Leftovers  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small bowl, combine the sliced shallot, red wine vinegar, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until the shallot is softened, about 1 hour.

Step 2    

In a saucepan, mix the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, quartered shallot, garlic and ginger; bring to a boil. Add the dark turkey meat and cook over low heat, stirring, until the liquid is reduced by half, 1 hour.

Step 3    

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the turkey stock with the rice, turkey fat and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until the rice is tender and the stock is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Step 4    

Cover the saucepan with a kitchen towel, then cover with the lid and let the rice steam for 20 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork. Spoon the soy-braised turkey into bowls, add the turkey rice and garnish with the pickled shallot rings.

Make Ahead

The soy-braised turkey can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 2 days; reheat before serving.
