Peppered Gizzards #SummerIdeas
It is summer here in Australia, the default thing here on a weekend or if you are on holiday like me is to throw a steak on the barbecue but I chose to do something different today.
I got some packs of giblets from Coles (grocery store) while shopping for Christmas and I thought why not some peppered gizzards this afternoon. The good thing about gizzards is they are very cheap, easy and quick to cook.
So let me show you how to make a sumptuous, delicious and finger licking peppered gizzards.
Olive or Canola oil.
Spices and herbs.
How to make your peppered gizzard.
First thing first, make sure you wash your gizzards thoroughly in water at least twice.
Wash the tomatoes, onions and garlic too.
Blend the tomatoes and onions briefly to make sure they don’t end up smooth.
Pour the washed gizzards into a cooking pot, add water, salt and spices to taste and cook for at least 30 minutes.
Dice the remaining onion, chili and garlic.
Once the gizzard is cooked, Sieve out the stock and keep meat separate in a bowl.
Pour some oil into the frying pan.
Allow to heat for about 3 minutes.
Add the diced onion and allow to heat for 2 minutes.
Add the garlic into the heated onion and oil.
Stir and allow to cook for about 3 minutes.
Add the blended tomatoes into the heated oil, onion and garlic mix, one cooking spoon at a time to avoid hot oil splashing into your face, body or the cooking stove.
Allow the mixture to cook for minimum of 5 minutes or until the sauce is thick.
Add the gizzards to the sauce, stir continuously to ensure a thorough mix and allow to cook for 5 minutes.
It is ready, you can have it with some cold drinks to counter the effect of the chili or eat with vegetables, salads or rice.
