When was the last time you had zvikanganwahama – gizzards?! I enjoy them a lot and love to try out different ways of preparing them. This here is one of them. They tasted great, everyone enjoyed them. Don’t forget your relatives after/while eating these, as the elders from past generations said you would, lol!

Equipment

  • Pot
  • Frying pan
  • Sharp knife
  • Chopping board
  • Wooden spoon
  • Teaspoon
  • Tablespoon

Instructions

  1. Get your ingredients together. These include:- 300 g gizzards
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/2 medium onion, sliced
    1/4 medium green pepper, julienned
    1 medium carrot, julienned
    2 whole garlic cloves
    1 tbsp tomato puree
    2 tbsp cooking oil
  2. Put your gizzards into a pot and add enough water to just cover them. Add garlic and salt. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Simmer until they are tender and cooked through.
  3. Heat oil in pan. Add the gizzards. Fry until they are beginning to brown. De-glazing with a little water as you go. (To deglaze is when you pour a cold liquid into a hot pan to get all the little brown bits unstuck from the pan. There’s a lot of flavour in those brown bits).
  4. Add the tomato puree, stir vigorously and ensure each gizzard is coated in the puree.
  5. Add the onion, carrots and green pepper. Fry for another 2 minutes, again, deglazing as you go. Check for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
