Make sure your pot is as hot as it can be (Instant Pot: wait until indicator says HOT).

Step 3

Brown the Turkey Quarters

Note: You can brown the Turkey Quarters in the Instant Pot, but we found it easier to brown them on a skillet.

First, add 1 tablespoon (15ml) of olive oil. Ensure the whole bottom is covered with oil.

Then, place the turkey quarters on a preheated skillet over medium high heat (or in the Instant Pot).

Brown each side for roughly 4 – 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Step 4

Deglaze Skillet (if you’re using a separate skillet)

Deglaze the skillet by pouring ½ cup (125ml) unsalted chicken stock.

Scrub the flavorful brown bits off the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon.

Reserve the flavorful liquid.

Step 5

Onion and Garlic

Add 1 tablespoon (15ml) of olive oil.

Then, add diced onion in the pressure cooker. Sauté for roughly a minute until soften.

Add minced garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds until fragrant.

Season with kosher salt and ground black pepper.

Step 6

Optional layer seasoning: taste and season with more kosher salt and ground black pepper.

Add 2 bay leaves, a pinch of rosemary, sage and thyme (rub the herbs with your fingers to “activate” them), then sauté for another minute until fragrant.

Step 7

Deglaze Instant Pot

Add a dash of sherry wine in the pressure cooker and deglaze by scrubbing the flavorful brown bits off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon.

Step 8

Add Turkey Quarters & Potatoes

Add browned turkey quarters, reserved flavorful liquid from skillet (if any), and the remaining unsalted chicken stock in the pressure cooker.

Mash the potatoes with a fork or potato masher.
