Tender Roast Turkey Leg (Drumstick) with Hickory Barbecue Sauce

I don't really fancy turkey legs (drumsticks) because the meat is tough and it takes some time for the marinade to penetrate into it. However this time, instead of roasting it straight away, I pop it into a pressure cooker first for 30 minutes so that the meat would be tender. Then I roasted the turkey in my oven for just 20 minutes. LOL! This is a shortcut way to cook turkey leg! ha ha ha!

Ingredients
Turkey leg (drumstick), 1 pc
Thyme, 1 teaspoon (dried)
Oregano, 1 teaspoon (dried)
Lemon juice from 1 lemon
Brown sugar, 2 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Paprika, 1 teaspoon
Pepper, to taste
Hickory Barbecue sauce to glazing

Marinade the turkey leg (preferbably overnight) with thyme, oregano, lemon juice, brown sugar, salt, paprika and pepper. Put the turkey leg and marinade into a pressure cooker. Add a litter water. Close the pressure cooker lid tightly. Cook under high pressure for 30 minutes. Turn of the heat and slowly release the pressure by adjusting the pressure relief valve.
Put turkey into a baking tray and roast in preheated oven at 200 Deg C for 25 minutes. Take out the turkey and glaze it with hickory barbecue sauce. Put it back into the oven and roast for around 5 more minutes. Serve turkey with leftover sauce in the pressure cooker.
