I like throwing everything in a magic pot, turning it on and coming back to a cooked dinner. That is the case with this ground turkey.
Sure you could easily cook it on the stove-top but I chose to go the slow cooker route this time around because that’s how I roll. Plus, I bet lots of you didn’t even know you could cook ground turkey in the slow cooker. It’s easy and it tastes great! Try it sometime when you’re making a large batch of tacos or if you want to cook a large amount of ground turkey and freeze it for future meals. It’s a nice hands-off way to cook!
I love the spicy flavor or sriracha sauce and the crunchy sesame seeds in this recipe. I rolled mine up in a large lettuce leaf but you could eat in plain or over rice if you’d like.
- 1 lb lean ground turkey
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger root
- 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- 1 Tbsp sriracha sauce (plus more for serving)

- Lettuce leaves, for serving
- Place turkey, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, sriracha and salt in the slow cooker. Use a large spoon to break up the meat as much as possible.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours or on HIGH for 2-4 hours. Break up the meat with a spoon and give a good stir.
- Serve meat wrapped up in lettuce and top with extra sriracha, sesame seeds and green onions, if desired.
Ideal slow cooker size: 3-4 quart
