Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
To a large, heavy bottom pot or Dutch oven over high heat add the Chicken Gizzards (1 lb) , Kosher Salt (1/2 Tbsp) , and Water (5 cups) . Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover for 30 minutes. Skim foam off the water as gizzards cook. Use a slotted spoon to remove the gizzards and reserve 3 cups of stock in a separate container.
Step 2
Cut the gizzards from the tough sinew, then chop the gizzards until they resemble ground meat. You can also chop them in a food processor. Set aside.
Step 3
Carefully dry the pot with a paper towel, add Canola Oil (1 1/2 Tbsp) , and heat to medium. Add in 80/20 Lean Ground Beef (1 lb) and stir to break into smaller crumbles. Cook until the meat is no longer pink.
Step 4
Add Yellow Onion (1) , Green Bell Pepper (1) , Celery (2 stalks) , and cook for 3 minutes.
Step 5
Add Garlic (3 cloves) , Worcestershire Sauce (1 Tbsp) , Dried Oregano (1/2 Tbsp) , Cajun Seasoning (1/2 Tbsp) , Cayenne Pepper (1 tsp) , and cook for 1 minute. Add the chopped gizzards and reserved gizzard stock, and use a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pot to release brown bits.
Step 6
Stir in the Long Grain White Rice (1 1/4 cups) and Bay Leaves (2) . Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cover for 12-15 minutes or until rice is cooked.
Step 7
Remove the bay leaves, discard and let the rice rest for 10 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork, garnish with Scallions (to taste) , and serve.
