Southern Smothered Smoked Turkey Necks made easy in the pressure cooker. These delicious turkey necks are smothered with onions, celery, garlic, and brown gravy!
Well I just had to do it folks! I had to share a turkey necks recipe, because so many of my luvs have been requesting it. Ever since I posted my soul food style smothered pork neck bones, people have been asking me to do a southern smothered turkey necks recipe. I know what you’re going to ask… “so what the heck took so long Rosie?!”… Y’all, for whatever reason, my stores have been out of turkey necks! Recently, I visited a new (new to me) store, and they had some fresh turkey necks there! So now that I have explained myself, let’s get to cooking these turkey necks!
Use a Pressure Cooker or InstaPot for these Tender Smoked Turkey Necks
I made sure to make this recipe as simple as possible y’all. Every time that I make something with homemade gravy, someone always ask me if they can some store-bought gravy. USUALLY, I say NO!!! However, I can’t keep doing that to my babies, so for this recipe, I’m going to actually use some gravy packs. If you are not a fan of gravy packs, feel free to make some homemade gravy. The gravy that I made for my smothered turkey wings, will work for this recipe!
So I mentioned that we will be using gravy packs, to make this recipe easier (and quicker) right? Well I also am using my pressure cooker as well, because I’ve been getting a lot of requests for more pressure cooker recipes. I guess you can say this is pretty much a 2 for one deal.
Whenever I make southern smothered turkey necks, I like to serve it with over rice or mashed potatoes. My favorite side dish would probably be collard greens, and then I like to finish off this soulful meal with a nice slice of my soul food sweet potato pie! Let me know in the comments, what you would serve with these delicious southern smothered turkey necks!
