Stews and sauces

Gizzard sauce

A long time ago in school, gizzard was the best way in getting lots of meat in your stew when you are on a tight budget. My roommates and I preferred gizzard especially over mutton/ chevon  because we always ended with bones after cooking instead of meat.
Gizzard in my opinion is a cheap way to the feed meat conscious. They will have a lot to munch on. I love it with waakye but you can serve with any carbohydrate dish of choice.
