Critters on the Menu
« on: March 25, 2013, 09:24:52 PM »
I've got some dutch ovens that I use to use before my domestication. Since the family is gone its time to rekindle the coals.

It's starts with preheating with coals and cooking some bacon, onion and garlic. Next the meat, some with tails , some not.

I added the rice and beer for the finish touch. Sorry about the bad pic. I blame the NewCastles.

Tonite was more of the same but with black beans,rice,corn bread and onion, brussel sprouts.

Hope your meal was as good!

Thanks for looking.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

Don't think I have had squirrel since I had a helping of "mystery jambalaya" at a friend's cookout many years ago. As I remember it has several kinds of game in it, and it was delicious! Never did find out what the rest of the meat was. Maybe alligator? :D

Fresh onion and black beans... :drool:

  Looks great,  it would make a fine camp meal for a couple of hunters out on a weekend hunt.
  How did you prep your squirrels for the pot,  soak in salted water, brine, par-boil,  ?

Well Moe, exactly. Brine and I found some teriyaki marinade and at some point a little maple syrup. These ingredients ywere chosen because the containers were almost empty. I'm scientific like that! Forgot to mention a sprinkling of Pico de Gyo.

Also forgot to mention that it cooked in a liberal amount of olive oil.

No beer was harmed in the cooking process.
