Wood Pigeon Cacciatore

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone i'm a new member :) Joined a couple of days ago,

Hope you're All keeping Well:)

 

one of my favourites is

Wood Pigeon Cacciatore (Cacciatore= Hunter in Italian) but other meat can be used

(off the bone)

4 to 6 Wood Pigeon Breasts

Sunflower oil

as many cloves of Garlic that you like - opt -i use loads in everything

2 Med onions- finely sliced

1 Grated Carrot

1 Red pepper - de-seeded and chopped into 1/2"-ish bits

1 Green Pepper- de-seeded and chopped into 1/2"-ish bits

2 tins chopped tomatoes

3/4lb Mushrooms - open cup or button - upto you

1 or 2 Chick stock cubes

5ml spoon of sugar -Opt

Hot chilli powder to you're taste (I likes it Hot!)

Italian herbs 1 or 2 Tbl spoons

Glass or few of good dry white wine

Tbl spoon of Tomato puree,

If it needs thickening use corn flour or arrow root,

 

large sauce pan,

Add oil -Enough to cover Btm of Pan

Add -

Onions, Peppers and grated carrot

Put pan lid on and fry on Medium heat until they soften (Don't forget to stir often)

When soft enough Add

Chopped Tomatoes, Sugar, Stock cubes, Herbs and Mushrooms then stir till it bubbles-Then

Add

The Chilli powder and let it all simmer for 15ish mins with the lid on

Add the Wine and back to simmer for 10mins - lid on

when this is done Turn off the heat and prep Woodies breasts

When you've done the above breasts turn heat back on and drop in the meat and

simmer again for 20ish mins

Cooked

 

We have this with batsami rice or linguine and it's Beautiful

if you do try this don't forget to put the rice on in good time

but you could have it with pasta or Spaghetti

Kind regards to All,

Les

Lez,

welcome to the forum and thanks for the recipe. I may be a bit thick, but, I got a bit lost towards the end of the recipe: would you be kind to add some detail on the bit about 'prepare the breasts'? do you pan fry them lightly and then add to the sauce, or do you just add them to the mixture raw for a few minutes and cook the lot together?

 

best wishes,

 

Finman
