How to cook squirrel.
Even though a squirrel looks like a rat with a fuzzy tail....it is quite a tasty 4 legged meal. A My Space friend of mine sent me a recipe....her name is DJ April Dawn....sweet lady. An old wives tale states,"If you don't sing while cookin' a squirrel...you'll get nuts instead of pearls!"
Sooooo Ladies....if you cook a squirrel...you can sing anything by Barry Manilow or Van Halen's "Jump!" I don't know why I chose Van Halen except for the reason that David Lee Roth favors a chubby squirrel in spandex.
Here's the recipe!
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
2 skinny squirrels, cut up (or 1 fat squirrel)
3 tbs all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c milk or chicken broth
salt and pepper
brown bouquet sauce
use vegetable oil or lard if you don't mind sacraficing a few days of life.
In large plastic food-storage bag orplastic container, combine 1/2 cup flour, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper; shake it (butts too) for mixing. Coat em good!
Toss in squirrel pieces; shake to coat. In large skillet, heat 1/8 inch of oil for 2 skinny squirrels, or 1/4 inch of oil for fat squirrel, over medium-high heat until hot. Add meat; brown on all sides. Turn down heat; cover tightly.
Cook over very low heat until tender, 35-45 minutes for 2 skinny squirrels, 20-25 minutes for fat squirrels, turning pieces once.
Take off cover and cook 5 minutes longer to crispy.
Discard all but 3 tablespoons oil. Over medium heat, stir flour into oil. Blend in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add bouquet sauce if darker is desired. Serve gravy with meat and you man will looooove you!
If that won't make your tongue slap your brains out!
Be sure and sing now!
