medium prep time 6-8 hrs | cook time 2hrs 30mins | SERVINGS 8


    1 (12-14 lb.) turkey, thawed
    10 scallions, finely chopped
    30 garlic cloves, crushed
    1/4 cup ground cumin
    3 teaspoons La Fe Sazón
    Salt and pepper to taste
    7 cups of beer
    2 sticks of salted butter at room temperature


    To prepare the marinade, mix the scallions, garlic, cumin, La Fe Sazón, salt, pepper and beer.

    Pour the marinade over the turkey and massage over the entire turkey and let it marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

    Tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Rub the butter inside and on the skin of the turkey, then stuff it with the rest of the butter. Place the turkey, breast side down, in a roasting pan on a rack. Pour two cups of water in the pan and place in the oven.

    Roast for 1 hour. Add additional water to the pan if needed and roast another 45-60 minutes. The interior temperature of the turkey should reach 160˚F in the thigh area. If the turkey starts getting too dark on top, cover it loosely with foil. Allow the turkey to rest at least 20 minutes before slicing.
