Pure Financial Return, Convenience & Extra Points

The appeal of this program really is the added convenience of free shipping and grocery pick-up fee. As a mom of a recent graduated baby / young toddler, having my groceries picked up and loaded to my car is valuable!

I love saving time. Although it is a little hard to quantify, I was making up my shopping list yesterday but actually adding things to my shopping cart. It literally saved me at least an hour depending on how things looked at the store: no crazy line up, no need to fight for a parking spot; no need to reason with my 2-year-old for 30 mins who thinks she can “do it herself!” or that she wants to buy all the sugary treats!

Obviously, I LOVE the extra points from purchasing baby diapers, baby formula and baby food – and it isn’t limited to just PC Branded products is huge!

Importantly, f you have kids then you probably will buy some Joe Fresh for sure. I also love shopping at Shoppers Drug Mart and online at their Beauty Boutique via Ebates and also gas up at Esso.

In just under a month of signing up, I have already racked up 356,596 PC Optimum Points = C$350. I already broke even my annual subscription cost and made some money!

To put things into perspective that’s

  • 6 free boxes of Enfamil,
  • 18 boxes of Huggies Diapers
  • Free groceries and household goods
  • or just a nice perk to buying yourself something special aka skincare or cosmetics from Shoppers Drug Mart (they carrier luxury and Derma brands.) My husband always says, “treat yourself!”

Are There Changes To the Existing PC Points Program?

No. The current PC Optimum points program will not change and you can still save points every time you make a purchase. I LOVE waiting for 20x Points Events at Shoppers Drug Mart. The new PC Insider program is a nice complement.

As an avid online shopper who likes to have everything delivered to my door, there’s an incentive to get 20x the points for cosmetics, groceries, and clothing. You can order online and then pick up your products at a store. If doing this saves me 3 to 4 hours monthly, SIGN ME UP!

Bonus Points

Watch your emails! Upon signing up and becoming a member, I also received an email with a unique promo code for 20,000 bonus points for my first PC Express pickup order of $60 or more.

In particular, I bought $70.36 worth of the following products:

  • 1x Case of 18 pack Enfamil A+ 2 Infant Formula
  • 4x Love Child Organics Love Ducks toddler snacks
  • 3x Mineral Water

Regular Points 11,200

Bonus Points 20,000

Turkey Katsu Sando: Crispy Japanese Turkey Sandwich Recipe

Turkey Katsu Sando: Crispy Japanese Turkey Sandwich Recipe

This post is sponsored by the Turkey Farmers of Canada. All views and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep Nomss in the kitchen!

If you love turkey sandwiches, this crispy Japanese turkey katsu sando is next level.

This recipe plays on the classic Tonkatsu deep-fried pork cutlets dish coated with panko crumbs and then deep-fried. Japanese people love this dish a lot and have included this deep-fried crispy pork in countless dishes like Katsu Don, Katsu Ramen, etc.

For starters, what’s not to love about a lightly pounded meat coated with breadcrumbs and then deep-fried? There’s something about sinking your teeth into that crispy crunch that melts into the juicy, moist cutlet.

Follow this easy tonkatsu recipe to make juicy and crispy panko-crumbed turkey sandwich! The Katsu Sando or cutlet sandwich in Japan is meticulous. The bread to meat to panko to kewpie mayo to kyabetsu no sengiri (finely shredded cabbage) ratio is almost always perfect. And, always with the crusts cut off!

If you want a summer blockbuster, you make Katsu Sandos. I love katsu sandos so much. It is quick and easy to make and is perfect for picnics, backyard entertaining and summer parties. It is always a crowd favourite.

The Katsu Sando is a simple thing. Adults love it. Kids love it.

It is also wonderful to entice your kids to eat their lunch at school! It fits perfectly well into a bento lunch box.

Tips for the Turkey Cutlet

Which cut should I use? For a lighter, healthier alternative, we used turkey thighs. You can always use turkey breasts too, but I am biased towards dark meat any day.

If you prefer you can also use different turkey cuts such as split breast without back with or without skin. For more information, visit THINK TURKEYTM and support your local Canadian turkey farmers!

Benefits of Turkey

  • Turkey is tasty, versatile and very nutritious. To change up my recipes, I love adding turkey to our weekly protein rotation.
  • Concentrated source of protein to help build strong, healthy muscles.
  • Excellent source of Iron, Zinc, Sodium, Vitamin B12, Niacin, Selenium, Vitamin D, Potassium and Magnesium, Phosphorus and Tryptophan.
  • Turkey is lean regardless of white meat or dark meat.
  • Turkey is easy to prepare – bake it, roast it, fry, grill, pressure cook, etc.

Make sure your turkey thighs are patted dry with a paper towel before seasoning.

Lightly season both sides of the turkey cutlets with salt and pepper.

Get your assembly line in order. Have your turkey on one side, then the egg wash, flour mix and panko on the other side. We used a Japanese Okonomiyaki flour with bonito flakes. You can you regular AP Flour if desire. I like the savoury umami appeal of bonito flakes.

Heat half an inch of oil with a high smoke point in a large frying pan or cast iron braiser. Fry the turkey until golden brown and cooked through.

Flip halfway through. Deep-fried each side for 1.5 minutes per side. Drain on the cooling rack.

Alternatively, bake the turkey thighs at 350°F for 35-40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Flipping halfway through also.

Thinly Shredded Cabbage kyabetsu no sengiri

Sometimes there’s a little raw cabbage salad stuffed into the sandwich itself (or on the side). I like this balance. It helps cuts the grease from the katsu and adds another layer of dimension to your sandwich.

Thinly shredded cabbage is a classic garnish. Quarter a whole cabbage into small wedges and slice it about 0.2mm thickness.

I like adding it unadulterated to my sandwich, but if you wanna get fancy, you can add a little Kewpie mayo!

The Sauce

Mix Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise with Shichimi Togarashi seasoning and drizzle onto your thinly shredded cabbage. Mix well.

Optional: Tonkatsu sauce is a special sauce made just for Tonkatsu deep-fried pork cutlets. It is a thick and sweet sauce. Add a drizzle of tonkatsu sauce to the other side of your turkey sandwich.

Tips to Make the Best Katsu Sando

In Japan, they use a specific bread called shokupan (食パン). It has a pillowy soft and fluffy texture. It is often made with milk and has a rich flavour and tender moistness. You can find this thick milk bread at any Asian supermarket. If you can not find this Japanese-style sandwich bread near you, Wonderbread will work as well.

Toast the bad boys until golden brown. Neatly cut the crusts from the bread slices.

Assemble the sandwich with the turkey cutlet, cabbage and sauce. Then cut the sandwich so that the cut-side faces upwards. Insert bamboo skewers through the middle of the sandwich to hold it together.

I love all the contrasting textures of this Crispy Turkey Sandwich: The fluffy thick bread protects the roof of your mouth from the rough breading; The sweet and spicy kewpie mayo in-between the juicy cutlet and crispy panko breading, and; the togarashi seasoning and the crust bright cabbage – all ties this sammy together!

Enjoy immediately. There is nothing sweeter than biting into a freshly made katsu sando!

Notes

  • Use a heavy duty commercial baking sheet that won’t warp in the oven. This is the baking sheet and cooling rack I use.

  • Make sure your turkey thighs are patted dry with paper towel before seasoning.

Sesame Hand Shredded Turkey Recipe | 芝麻手撕火雞

Sesame Hand Shredded Turkey Recipe | 芝麻手撕火雞

Quick and Easy to make Hand Shredded Turkey Recipe 芝麻手撕火雞. Low Carb Instant Pot Pressure cooker or oven roasted. Hand Pulled Poultry NOMSS.com Food Blog
This post is sponsored by the Turkey Farmers of Canada. All views and opinions are my own.

Sesame Hand Shredded Turkey 芝麻手撕火雞 is a refreshing low carb recipe that is super quick and easy to make. This light mouth-watering cold appetizer is a take on the traditional Sesame Shredded Chicken dish by swapping the chicken for turkey! We love the lower calorie count, concentrated source of protein, and nutrient-dense turkey. Turkey tastes delicious in your favourite, everyday recipes. Turkey is an excellent option to add to your daily protein rotation.

 

For our Sesame Hand Shredded Turkey recipe, we used turkey legs and thighs. My family loves dark meat because it has tender and moist meat with wonderful flavour! It takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours to roast turkey legs (bone-in, skin-on) at 350F or 30 mins in an InstantPot. If you prefer you can also use different turkey cuts such as split breast without back with or without skin. For more information, visit THINK TURKEYTM and support your local Canadian turkey farmers!

 

Benefits of Turkey

  • Turkey is tasty, versatile and very nutritious. To change up my recipes, I love adding turkey to our weekly protein rotation.
  • Concentrated source of protein to help build strong, healthy muscles.
  • Excellent source of Iron, Zinc, Sodium, Vitamin B12, Niacin, Selenium, Vitamin D, Potassium and Magnesium, Phosphorus and Tryptophan.
  • Turkey is lean regardless of white meat or dark meat.
  • Turkey is easy to prepare – bake it, roast it, fry, grill, pressure cook, etc.

 

I remember the first time I had Sesame Sesame Shredded Chicken 芝麻手撕雞 at a Chinese restaurant. It was so refreshing and appetizing! I loved the bright flavours of savoury with a good balance of tanginess and sweetness! I knew immediately that I wanted to replicate it myself at home.

 

 

How To Roast or Pressure Cook Turkey

Start by seasoning turkey legs with salt and pepper and a little garlic powder. Marinate for at least 20 mins in the refrigerator. If you are able to marinate overnight, even better.

Option 1: Roast turkey at 350F for 1.5 hours for approximately 1.5 lbs ( 680 g). Cook bone-in breasts, thighs, drumsticks and wings until a digital meat thermometer inserted into the meat, away from the bone, registers 165°F (74°C).

Option 2: To pressure cook turkey in your Instant Pot add 1 cup of your preferred stock broth – we suggest poultry stock or vegetable stock. Set timer for 30 mins under high pressure. Then 10 minutes Natural Release. Remove turkey and check for an internal temperature at 165°F (74°C).

 

Pro Tip 1: Discard turkey skin if desired. This will reduce the fat and oil content.

Pro Tip 2: Because this is a cold appetizer dish, you may choose to prepare this 1 day in advance and let chill in the refrigerator.

How To Make Hand Shredded Turkey

Once the turkey has finished cooking. Remove from pan and let rest for 5 to 10 mins until it is cool to touch with your hands.

To achieve hand shredded turkey, you must hand-pull the meat apart. Skipping this step will not give you the satisfying complex textures of tender turkey. You will want long fibre strands instead of chunks. The purpose of this is so every shredded, every small piece of meat gets the sauce. It is so flavourful!

Pro Tip: If you are really want to keep your hands clean, you can opt to use two forks and pull-apart the turkey meat from the bones. Remember to save the bones and any meat left on the turkey legs later to make soup or bone broth.

Preparing Other Ingredients

While the turkey is cooking, you can prepare the other ingredients.

To make this recipe healthier, easier, and quicker, we modified it with everyday pantry staples. We used sweet pickles instead of the traditional sweet and sour pickled vegetable 甜酸菜. I think they taste equally as delicious if not better!

We sliced baby red radish with a mandoline and then julienned them into tiny strips for crunch. Because radishes are neutral in flavour, it was a great vehicle to used the brine from the sweet pickles to help ‘quick pickle’ the salad. Plus, the vibrant red colour just simply brightens your dish!

Slice Thai red chilis, deseed and dice. Use one Thai red chilli deseeded for mild heat; two for medium and three (with seeds) if you would like it spicy. We do not recommend making this dish too spicy because you will miss the aromatic sesame flavours.

Peel cucumber skin. Cut in half lengthwise using a chef’s knife. Scoop out the seeds using the tip of a spoon. Removing the moisture from the cucumbers is crucial because you do not want your Shredded Turkey Salad to get watery. Julienne the cucumber.

Pro Tip: Season cucumbers with a dash of salt, mix well and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. The remaining moisture will escape. Drain and pat dry with paper towels.

Julienne the green onions, smash a couple of garlic cloves and chop up some cilantro. Also, slice a couple of sheets of nori seaweed to give it a boost of umami!

 

How To Make Sesame Sauce

In a small mixing bowl, mix together your Sesame Sauce Mixture. Set aside or refrigerate.

Pro Tip: Make a big batch of the Sesame Sauce Mixture and have it on hand whenever you need to add a quick punch of flavours to your noodles, dumplings or salad. The sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

 

Preparing Sesame Hand Shredded Turkey

In a large mixing bowl toss together hand shredded turkey, 2 tbsp of the sesame sauce mixture, julienne sweet pickles, Thai red chilis, cucumbers, baby red radishes, green onions, minced garlic and cilantro. Mix well.

Divide and serve. Garnish with remaining cilantro, green onions.

Pro Tip 1: Although this dish is a cold appetizer it can be eaten warm as well. 

Pro Tip 2: For extra sesame flavours, toast white sesame seeds and sprinkle on top.

 

We hope you enjoy making this refreshing low carb quick and easy Shredded Turkey Recipe. It can be made easily in an Instant Pot or roasted in your oven.
