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, such a 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 your hear out and you are sure to have a string of pearls on the way.
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 your man will love you!
Be sure to sing and maybe even dance as you stir.
Cook squirrels and get pearls.
You can also have hubby cook it on the grill. He gets new tools, but has to dance and sing too.
