Broiled Java Turkey

Broiled Java Turkey


Boneless, skinless turkey breast halves are readily available in most supermarket meat departments. Often labeled “turkey London broil,” they make a great canvas to paint with flavor. Brewed coffee creates a hearty marinade here that imparts tons of flavor in a short time.

  • 3/4 cup brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

    How to make it  

  • 1

    In a medium bowl, combine the coffee, vinegar, garlic, sugar, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, and cinnamon. Transfer to a large zip-close bag and add the turkey. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight, turning occasionally.

  • 2

    Preheat the oven to 425°F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • 3

    Remove the turkey from the marinade, reserving marinade, and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Place the turkey on a wire rack on the baking sheet.

  • 4

    Roast, brushing with reserved marinade every 10 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven.

  • 5

    Preheat the broiler. Broil the turkey 5 inches from the heat until nicely browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
