    Prep: 20 min. Cook: 30 min. + releasing
  • Makes
    20 servings

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 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. In a small bowl, combine next six ingredients; pour over turkey. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high and set time for 25 minutes. When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to manufacturer's directions.
  • Remove turkey from pressure cooker. Select saute setting and adjust for high heat; bring juices to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until sauce is thickened. When cool enough to handle, shred meat with two forks; return meat to pressure cooker. Stir to heat through.
  • Preheat oven to 325°. Split rolls; brush cut sides with butter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, cut side up. Bake until golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Spoon 1/3 cup turkey mixture on roll bottoms. Replace tops.
