Healthy Corned “Beef” and Cabbage Recipe

One of the easiest ways to make a beef recipe healthier is to use turkey.

Almost every beef or pork recipe can be made with turkey.

I love a nice “Pork” and sauerkraut made with turkey legs. Just make it as usual but use skinless turkey legs or thighs. When it is fall-off-the-bone tender, pull all the turkey off the bone and call it pork!

No one will be the wiser!
