Hey guys just wondering if anyone had any personal favorites for a recipe for cooking squirrel. I just went last weekend and have some to cook. Thanks.

I like to brown them in a skillet and then put them in a slow cooker with a can of cream of mushroom and a can of cream of chicken soup. Served over brown rice.

4 squirrels cleaned
1 chicken
2 c bell pepper; chopped
2 c celery; chopped
1 qt stewed tomatoes
1 cn (small) tomato sauce
2 c canned okra or fresh iffin you can find it.
3 tb creole gumbo file; (or to taste)
3/4 c dark roux


Pressure cook and debone squirrels and chicken. Save the broth.

To boiling broth, add bell pepper, celery, onion, tomatoes and tomato sauce.
Make roux using oil and flour in equal parts in a heavy cast iron skillet brown your roux until it becomes the color of a penny. Don't over cook the roux or you'll ruin the whole mess.
As soon as the roux comes to color add to the above mixture, stirring until well blended. Cook until vegetables are tender. Add meat and okra. Season to taste. You may also want to add hot sauce to taste. Simmer for 15 minutes. Just before serving or when serving, add file, (to taste). Serve over rice. Serves 15 to 20.

Thems good vittles thar!

We do the same thing that two hats does only we leave out the chicken soup and we add mushrooms, onions, and spices that the crew in camp enjoys. Sometimes we pressure cook them which debones them but we do it either way, and we use other small game in the same pot. There are never any left overs. The crock pot will debone also and the shot falls to the bottom. The pressure cooker tenderizes also. Have them good eats!

Par boil for 20 minutes in bullion.

Coat with salt, pepper and paprika. A light dusting of flour

Pan fry to brown, add onion, green pepper and a can of stewed tomatos once the onions turn transparent.

Simmer down for an hour and place the squirrel on a bed of rice or egg noodles

BBQ Squirrel



~ 4 squirrels, quartered
~ 3 tbsp salt
~ 2 tsp pepper
~ 1 tsp garlic powder
~ 1 tsp onion powder
~ your favorite dry rub
~ 15 charcoal briquets
~ 3 handfuls hickory chips
~ your favorite bbq sauce

In a large pot, boil the squirrel in water seasoned with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder for 1 hour or until tender.

In the meantime, soak the hickory chips in water. Light the charcoal and let them get white hot. Place them to one side of your grill.

Remove the squirrel from the water and pat dry. Coat with your favorite dry rub.

Add one handful of wood chips to the hot coals.

Place squirrel on grill across from the hot coals. Cover and smoke for 1 hour. Add a handful of wood chips every half hour.

Add last of the wood chips and baste squirrel with bbq sauce. Smoke for another half hour basting another 3 - 4 times.

Serve with mashed potatoes, sweet corn and buttermilk bisquits.

Enjoy!

I put mine in the crock pot with water and a packet of french onion soup mix and season with Montreal steak seasoning. I cook on low heat for about 10-12 hours. The meat falls from the bones and put that over white or brown rice. mmmmmmmmm time to go hunting!!!

:yeahthat:

To steam them, put them on a rack in a broiler pan, put a little water in the pan (keep the water below the rack, not touching the meat) lay some bacon slices over the meat and cover with foil, put in the oven at around 250 for 2hrs.

I have also done vice versa, steam for an hour and then coat and put in the deep fryer until crispy.
