Alligator Sauce Piquant-1 Recipe
1 no ingredients
5 lb Alligator meat -- trim/cube
1 c Olive oil
3 c Flour -- All-purpose
5 c Onion -- chopped
2 c Green onion -- chopped
1 c Bell pepper -- chopped
1/2 c Celery -- chopped
2 c Tomatoes -- fresh/chopped
8 c Water -- cold
2 TB Garlic -- finely chopped
2 TB Worcestershire sauce
: Juice of 1 lemon
: Salt to taste
: Tabasco sauce to taste
2 c White wine -- dry
6 c Tomato sauce
Make a dark roux with olive oil and flour. When roux is dark brown,
add onion, green onion, bell pepper, and celery; cover and cook until
onions are clear, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and continue
cooning for 10 min; stir often. Add water and stir to make a thick
liquid. Add garlic, Worcestershire, lemon juice, salt, hot sauce,
wine, and tomato sauce, making sure to mix well. Add alligator, and
enough water to cover the ingredients by 2 inches; stir to mix. Bring
to a boil, stirring frequently. After it comes to a boil, turn heat
to low and cover, checking from time to time, and stir to prevent
sauce from sticking. Continue cooking for 3 to 4 hrs. until meat is
tender. Serve over cooked rice or spaghetti with Parmesan cheese.
Freeze leftovers in serving size containers.
This recipe is for a party--no one would go to this much trouble if
the recipe only fed 4 peoples.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
If you enjoy your food, but want to become thin and also improve your overall physical condition, then, as most people know, you should follow a meticulously prepared wholesome dietary regime. Theoretically, this needs to involve 5 standard portions of grains, cereals and vegetables every day and also contain the optimum fusion of important nutrients.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to use splenda instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to experiment a little and it may not work for every recipe, but it does bake up nice most of the time.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring compound and one of the carotenid family. It is behind the dark red color of some fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Unlike numerous nutrients, lycopene does not become less effective if subjected to heat, but is truly improved by being heated.
Its most important theraputic value is that it serves as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the risk of contracting cancer.
