Gizzards & hearts
« on: December 09, 2018, 08:49:59 AM »
Gizzards and hearts into a vac bag with a few pads of butter. Vac'ed and double sealed. Going to sous vide these for 24 hours at 140 degrees. Tomorrow after work I'll pull them from the SV bath trim and then skewer them. Then move outside to grill them over red hot charcoal and brushed w/ Soy Vay Veri Teriyaki.

Going to serve them with a side of Porterhouse about 1-1/2 thick and butter browned mushrooms.

You have to check each location for Kentucky Fried Chicken, some sell fried chicken liver dinners.  They are damn good, at the least the ones I have ordered were.  My Wife thinks they are the most disgusting type of food one could ingest.  I always counter with, "It was a brave man who first ate an oyster."  I will also eat my weight in those, raw, fresh, with a touch of cocktail sauce.  One final observation, raw chicken gizzards,  hearts, and livers make the best catfish bait in the world..........

OM, OM. Am I being foolish thinking you peel the gizzards b4 the process begins? Stomach muscles have got to be the strongest in the animal kingdom. Perhaps you pre-treat, like Leutefisk? :)
Liver though? Excellent! Happy Holidays, Lance,  R3~

The texture of gizzards really grosses me out. I'm OK with liver. Best liver I ever had was fresh out of a deer. Cooked with onions....

Hopefully the 24 hours will soften them up. Shooting for something close to what we had years ago I Phili at a Japanease restaurant, yakatori gizzards.

Also Bresaola is done and I believe I owe you a piece. Cool weather Iím willing to vac pac and priority mail it should be fine unrefridgerated for a day or 3. Itís well cured and tasting fine.

Not a liver eater usually.  But once, I stayed a weekend with some beef farmer friends.  We stayed up really late - they were slaughtering a cow and wanted the cool late nite/early AM to kill, gut, skin and hang the beast.  The liver was still warm when it hit the fry pan.  With onions & eggs and fresh baked bread it was by far one of the best b'fasts I have ever had.

Lance, I didn't think I'd be salivating 'til mid January. Whooopie!
We've been in the mid teens for a few days.
We may have to have another, smaller, Guzzi whoop de doo when the Bresaola arrives.
Please let me know what you need.  R3~

I make my own dog's food. I add Gizzards & hearts to the boneless chicken breasts, fresh veggies, and barley.
They love it.  :grin:

In my area, NW Ct., I can find boneless, skinless, chicken breast for really good prices. Sometimes $1.49.
I've been doing this for a long time. The recalls, and problems with canned dog food ain't worth it.
Nothing but the best for my 3 best friends.  :wink:

Only thing I need to know is do you also want a sample of some Lonzino and maybe some ghost pepper cinnamon beef jerky?

Santa, Gargamel,  Gnomes or whatever deity you follow will cover the shipping! All there is left to do is enjoy!

OMG. Gnomes? Haven't they been upgraded to emoji's?
I started salivating as soon as I read 'Ghost pepper and Cinnamon'. Yes, thank you Lance; I'd like to try the Jerky, as well as the Bresaola.  That would be terrific. Thank you very much. 
     Good fortune,  R3~

I've never bought chicken to feed to a dog.   Do you cook it first before you mix it up and feed it?

Yes, we boil the thighs. save the broth and swish a little in. She's been a picky eater her whole life but not with this recipe.

My sister in law has a wolf sanctuary, no cooking needed for the wolfies, 1/2 raw chicken is gone in about 2 crunches.

Yes, cut it into smaller pieces, boil it. Let that cool, while the veggies and barley cook.
While the veggies cook, I break the chicken down, one of my dogs lost part of his lower jaw to cancer.
When everything is done, I mix it together. Then put it into one gallon containers, and freeze it, taking it out as needed.
I usually make at least ten gallons at a time.

Just for perspective...in Japan, they call it YAKITORI...and it is one of my favorites dishes, with a fresh draft beer. 

They consist of:  Chicken hearts, kidneys, shoulder, butt, stomach, liver...and anything else from the chicken you can imagine! 

Grilled with a savory sauce...good stuff! :cool: :thumb: :smiley:

Home made pet food also has a downside as its not a balanced diet and you can actually be doing more harm than good. Also is chicken or other meats really safer than premade pet food. Lots of recalls happening all the time on foods we consume every day.

I get a kick out of "my dog love's it". My dog likes to lick her ass, eat cat poop, drink from puddles or toilet, eat dead things she finds, eat dry food. Just like 99.9% of other dogs she doesn't have the most discerning palate and will eat most anything.

I understand if there are special requirements like dental or digestive issues. But if its because you have a finicky eater its most likely self created.
