Easy Squirrel Brown Gravy
« on: May 07, 2018, 07:14:13 PM »
Per Mike's (Bicycleman) request. Here's an easy way to make a squirrel gravy. Measurements don't need to be precise and the only essential ingredients are squirrels, onions, oil, flour, and seasoning.

Squirrels (any number depending upon number of guests/pot size)
Seasoning (black pepper, red pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, salt)
1 medium white or yellow onion (chopped)
1 bell pepper (chopped)
Oil (enough to almost cover the bottom of pot)
1/4 cup flour

Cut up squirrels, dry off, season
Heat oil over medium to medium high and add squirrels (we're browning them not trying to cook thoroughly) - First picture
Once squirrels are browned, remove, lower heat to medium low to medium, then add onion, bell pepper, and flour, stir
Important - stir almost constantly for the next 5 to 10 minutes until the flour and oil is brown. - Second picture (note flour on utensil and bottom of pot)
Add water to almost cover squirrels - Third picture
At this point you can cover it and leave on stove top at low simmer or do like I do and stick it in the oven at 300 degrees (both for 2 to 2.5 hrs) until
squirrels are tender and water has cooked down to a respectable gravy. - Last picture
Serve over rice.

John, now you have gone and done it - I am homesick for some Louisiana cooking. 
That look very tasty. 
One little question:  Do you do sticky rice or the flaky style?

Sticky. I noticed my recipe is basically the same as yours. But as you know, everyone makes gumbo and brown gravy pretty much the same way, but everyone's gumbo and gravy tastes different.

. . . but everyone's gumbo and gravy tastes different.  <---  That is very true.
When we moved, the essential things came along and other things stayed in Louisiana until later.  And some things were overlooked:  My favorite rice cooking pot is one thing overlooked in the excitement.  Another thing I left behind was a 5 gallon bucket with about 3,000 rounds of 22LR, some targets, some special sizes of allen keys, etc.  I also left a pair of dress shoes - I missed those on Easter Sunday.  And there are many other things I have missed since we came here.  But we should be going back in June for finish packing up.
Can you guess which of all these left behind items I miss the most!  >:(

I'd have to guess the rice cooking pot. I should of mentioned I added chicken only because I married a city girl who won't eat squirrel. The next squirrels I cook I'll make a sauce piquante (tomato sauce /medium roux), take pictures, and post recipe.

Looks delicious John!  Thanks for posting the recipe.  What type of oil do you prefer to use?

Mike,
If I had to guess I 'd say you miss the rice cooking pot the most, but that's only a guess because nothing really sticks out in your post ;D

Harry, I used canola oil, but vegetable oil or even olive oil will do.

He's basically browning the rue to take the floury flavor out of it and give it a pleasing color and a bit of nutty flavor.

Hey, John, those other guys need a recipe for a "sauce piquante".  I am from Acadia Parish and I have made many "sauce piquante"(s); I made that sauce with chicken, pork, Catfish, and squirrels.
That stuff really looks good in your pictures.  YUMMMMMY!
