This easy stir fry made with ground turkey has all the complex, savory-sweet flavor you love in a good Asian stir fry but with minimal effort on your part. The stir fry sauce is simple, made with just 5 pantry staples: soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic powder, toasted sesame oil, and cornstarch (optional).
1tspcornstarch(optional, but it helps to thicken the sauce)
1lblean ground turkey
In a medium bowl, whisk together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, water, sesame oil, and garlic powder. In a separate small bowl, whisk the cornstarch with 2 teaspoons of water until smooth. Set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet or wok, brown the ground turkey over medium-high heat, crumbling it with a spatula as it cooks. Once browned and cooked through, stir in the soy sauce mixture. Bring to a simmer and let the mixture cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the cornstarch and water mixture and continue stirring until the sauce has thickened. Remove the pan from heat.
Serve over rice or cauliflower rice with any veggies you like.
