Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless turkey breast halves (2 pounds each)
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 20 Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

Place turkey in a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and pepper; pour over turkey. Cook, covered, on low 5-6 hours or until meat is tender.
Remove turkey from slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and cold water until smooth; gradually stir into cooking liquid. When cool enough to handle, shred meat with two forks and return meat to slow cooker. Cook, covered, on high 30-35 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
Preheat oven to 325°. Split rolls and brush cut sides with butter; place on an ungreased baking sheet, cut side up. Bake 8-10 minutes or until toasted and golden brown. Spoon 1/3 cup turkey mixture on roll bottoms. Replace tops. Yield: 20 servings.
