Gator Stew. step by step.
We recently received about six lbs of gator form a friend who can afford legal tags xD so he gave us some thigh and some tail. I took the thigh and did the only thing I feel its really good for, and that's stew. So! Since i've never done this before, and i'm kind flying by the seat of my pants, I figured i'd put it here!
I started it last night, but I will explain how its gotten to this point.
I took the thawed meat, and because thigh is thicker and more fibrous than tail, its often tougher. So we boil it. Throw in some garlic, salt, onion, and a little powdered chicken or beef bullion. Set to boil on low. I left mine overnight. Put it on about 8, tasted it around 730 am. It was a little like an earthier chicken broth. Heavier, but that's what a stew is supposed to be :)
This afternoon, I will be adding potatoes, carrots, and celery. Tomorrow morning, I will add peas, and corn. Heres what it looks like this morning :)
