Pressure-Cooker Mini Teriyaki Turkey Sandwiches

Preparing the pulled turkey in a delicious teriyaki sauce for these snack-size sandwiches is a breeze using a pressure cooker. Serving them on lightly-toasted sweet dinner rolls is a finishing touch.—Amanda Hoop, Seaman, Ohio
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min. + releasing
  • Makes
    20 servings


  • 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


  • Place turkey in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. In a small bowl, combine next 6 ingredients; pour over turkey. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 25 minutes. Allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure.
  • 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 until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. When cool enough to handle, shred meat with 2 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.
