switching ground lamb with ground turkey??

1 lb ground lamb
1 chopped onion
2 chopped garlic bulbs
1/2 cut beef broth
1 tablespoon fresh dill
salt and pepper
3 chopped potatoes
1 bay leaf
2 chopped tomatoes

Saute lamb onion and garlc until meat is brown
Add broth, dill, salt and pepper and potato and bay leaf
Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Cook until potatoes are soft
Add tomatoes and cook until heated.

NOW THE QUESTION...

How would you change this recipe if you were going to
use ground turkey instead of lamb???

Chicken broth for the beef?
What spice instead of dill?

Thanks!!

Smiles, TRISH!!!

If you like the taste of the dish with the lamb, don't change anything but the lamb.

IF you want to change the dish, switch to chicken broth and another herb, whatever you like, in place of the dill.

It's a new recipe Andy...so I don't know if I like it or not. I think I would.

Love lamb... but I have turkey I need to use.

So maybe chicken broth and sage?

Thanks Andy!!

Agree with Andy....Don't change anything!

Or the sky is the limit...beef broth + plus red wine + thyme or chicken broth + white wine, + Tarragon...The ideas are endless!!

Have Fun!!!! & Enjoy!!

THANK YOU UB!!

The chicken broth with white wine and tarragon sounds great.
But then again so does the beef broth with red wine and thyme.

smiles, Trish

Chicken broth and tarragon is my suggestion. There would be nothing wrong with the dill though - but tarragon........ YUM!

Your recipe calls for 2 garlic bulbs. I'm sure you must mean 2 garlic cloves. A bulb is the whole head. I'd change that one.
I would also switch the dill for fresh chopped parsley. Beef and parsley go well together.
