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 thats 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 thats 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 :)
