For The Turkey:
  • 4 Your favorite hamburger buns or Kaiser rolls.
  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds leftover turkey meat
  • 2 cups chicken stock or turkey stock
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable or olive oil, for sautéing.
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Chipotle pepper sauce or other smoky hot sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. liquid smoke (optional, but highly recommended)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
For the Slaw:
  • 1/2 head red (purple) cabbage and 1/2 head of green cabbage, shredded (About 4 cups worth)
  • 1 carrot, grated or julienned. (We like grated)
  • 3 green onions or scallions
  • 3 Tbsp Mayonaise
  • 1/2 tsp mustard powder
  • Pepper to taste
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add onions and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add Turkey, Stock, Worcestershire sauce, chipotle pepper sauce and liquid smoke. Allow to come to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until turkey falls apart and liquid has reduced by at least half (About 40 minutes.) Test for seasoning and add salt and pepper as needed. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Shred cabbage and place in a large nonreactive bowl. (Metal, glass or plastic, no copper or aluminum please.) Add Mayo, mustard and pepper and toss to coat well.
  4. Place 1/4 of mixture on the bottom of each bun. Top with a generous portion of the slaw. Serve immediately
