Directions

In a small, heavy saucepan, make a dark brown roux with 2 tablespoons oil and flour. Set aside. In a large, heavy skillet brown the ground pork in 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. When the meat is brown, add onions, green pepper, and celery. Cook until the vegetables are tender. In the meantime, place the gizzards in a pot with enough water to cover. Boil until tender. Drain the gizzards and reserve the stock. Grind the gizzards in a meat grinder or food processor. Add this to the pork mixture along with the roux. Mix together the gizzards, pork, roux, reserved stock, and seasonings. Simmer for 1 to 2 hours. Immediately before serving, add the parsley and green onions. Add the rice and mix gently but thoroughly. Adjust seasonings. Add options right before mixing with rice if desired.
