Grouse is one of my very favorite game birds to eat. If you are lucky enough to have one in your freezer, thaw it right now and…
Mix about a cup of flour
with a few tablespoons of Hungarian Sweet Paprika. The Hungarian kind is better! I get mine from Dean & Deluca and it’s excellent. Add a pinch of salt and a twist of ground pepper
Cut the grouse into pieces…look’s like something from Dexter huh?
Rinse the grouse with water and then dip in an egg wash and then in the flour mixture
After all of the pieces are covered in flour
Heat a few tablespoons of canola oil in the mountain cook’s best friend, the pressure cooker. I love my pressure cooker! If you live above 6000 feet and you don’t have one, go buy one right now! This one has a setting for browning meat. You heat the oil and then put the meat in for a few minutes until it’s nice and brown
add about a cup of water and then cover and set for high pressure for 30 minutes
This is what you end up with
If you don’t have a pressure cooker, brown the grouse in hot oil in a skillet and then add the water and cover. Simmer over low to medium heat for an hour or so.
But, if you don’t have a pressure cooker and you live in the mountains, for the love of all that is good and holy, go get one!
