This is a version of my original Braise Turkey Wings Recipe, using a dutch oven. In this recipe, I shorten the cooking time by using an Instant Pot (electrical pressure cooker). There are some alterations to the original recipe, but both recipes are absolutely delicious!!
Season the turkey wings with the sea salt, black pepper, sage, thyme, garlic paste and 1 tbsp or olive oil.
In a large frying pan, drizzle some olive oil and at high temperature, brown the turkey wings on both sides (around 8 minutes per side)
Once all the wings are browned, place them in the Instant Pot.
In the same frying pan, at high heat, lightly saute the onions for 5 minutes.
Add the onions, carrots, figs and red wine into the Instant Pot and lock the pot. Set the Manual setting to 25 minutes.
After the 25 minutes, let it sit for 10 minutes, release any pressure left and unlock the pot. Stir the wings and all the ingredients into the sauce to cover everything.
Lock the pot and cook in Manual setting for 9 minutes. After the 9 minutes, let the pot sit for 10 minutes and release any pressure left. Unlock the pot and your wings are ready!
You can use dried figs, dates, apricots or prunes.
Use dry red wine. The dried fruit is going to provide the sweetness to balance the sauce. Sweet wines might make it the sauce too sweet.
You could use the Saute setting on the Instant Pot to brown your wings and onions. I prefer a large frying pan because of the size, I can do more at the same time. But the Saute setting will do the trick.
