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 :)

First catch your 'gator!

Fat chance in the UK.

On the other hand with all the rain we are getting they would survive here.

Lol, I could ship one to ya if ya want! We get em in our yards, in our golf course lakes, in our pools, in our garages, I know a lady who ended up with one in her paddock just strolling along. Were alex and I used to live we'd pick up the little 4 footers that wandered to close to the chicken coop and eat those, and we always had to be careful on trails that we didnt stumble onto a nest.

No snakes for me either, but gator is not bad.

Ever have Turtle or Squirrel? It all tastes like Chicken

I used to raise Emu, it is great also.

OK STG I will take your word for it.
Thankfully everything you mentioned is restricted due to my religion.
Except maybe EMU.
If someone puts a drumstick on my plate that large I aint eatin it. Shalom

I had a taste of rattler - tasted very similar to chicken!

I will try most things once.

I dislike squid and octopus because of the texture, might just as well be eating a chunk of rubber.

About the only thing I do not eat is anything with chilli, it is way to hot for me and I end up with a mouthful of ulcers.

Well, I have no religion restrictions (or religion for that matter) but alligators? Turtles? Squirrels? Snakes?
I watched this show once where people deep fried whole tarantula's... Seem's so freaking weird to me but I guess it's like eating cow to them.
I'll stick to my beef and chicken. I've never been a brave eater. Haven't even tried fish, shrimp, or seafood. LOL
