How do you cook your squirrel?

Postby ASUBaseball » Sat Jan 06, 2007 12:29 pm

Well I've pretty much given up on the duck hunting for the year, too many long trots through lavon trying to get to them and never finding them has burned me out. however, ive seen tons of squirrels, so I may go out later today and pop a few. How do you guys cook 'em? I used to eat them when i was little and I know theyre good, but don't remember how my friends' dad did it.

Basically how ever you like dark meat cooked, simmered in gravy is pretty darn good. Spiced up and fried, in a crock pot, cabobs I could play forrest gump with this one. :yes:

I like to boil them for about 45 minutes ('til nice and tender) then toss in a dirty rice or jambalya recipe. Last night they were added to gumbo with duck legs and breasts and deer sausage. Talk about good!

Cant beat any of the above.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

the quickest way is to use a pressure cooker. you can cut the toughness down really quick like that. then you can cook them in whatever recipe you want.

and if you boild them with a few sage leaves it can take the strong flavor out of the older squirrels.

after all that you can do whatever you want. my favorite is squirrel and pastry. kind of a play on chicken an pastry in a good southern tradition :drool:

Like chicken. For those of you who say you would never eat one Im guessing youve never had it, and as far as trying to clean a road kill squirrel. :no:

I've eaten lots of squirrels and I'm not some hillbilly. squirrels are exactly like cottontail rabbits except smaller. They taste mild, and I've never heard of anyone not liking them.

Slow roast or deboned and stewed with tomatoes, peppers and sausage spices. My wife calls it redneck chili.
