    Default What's For Dinner? Crane That's What

    Yummy sandhill crane in a bourbon cream sauce, broccoli with a balsamic/apricot drizzle, and rice. Of course a little bourbon for the bird and a little for the cook. Check out the link. All of the recipes are great.

    Come on now, don't lie. Is it flying rib-eye or fling liver!?

    **** BS but you put some effort into that bird!

    Very Nice!

    I've cooked the younger birds several ways but last year I took several breasts from old birds and smoked some and grilled a few others....then I packed em in pint jars and half filled with chicken broth before canning. Amazingingly tender for a quick meal on noodles etc.

    The crane was very good. Similar to duck but milder IMO. This was from a young bird that was curious who was whistling. Lol

    The second half of my crane was treated to an orange, brandy peppercorn sauce.

    My mom was in town for the holidays and a fan of brandy so this was an easy sell.
    Paired with some chard and a nice red blend I was able to payback my mom for some of the time she patiently taught/helped me in the kitchen.
