This is a favorite of my family except for my husband! We have it when he is gone mostly, but he is a good sport when I do make it and he is home for dinner! Edit: 25 years later he comes into the house and says, "Gizzards and Rice? YUM!" LOL.

    Drain and reserve cooking water. Set gizzards aside to cool.

    Heat butter in a 12' frying pan until bubbly. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is soft..

    Add rice after onions are beginning to soften.
  • Add red pepper if desired
    Here I added some sweet red pepper for a little color.
  • Mushrooms added
    Add mushrooms and cook until they are getting soft.
  • Some of the liquids used
    Mix Sherry, soy, cumin, ginger and water from gizzards to make 4 cups.
  • Simmering
    Add to rice mixture, bring to a boil, cover and simmer.
  • Chopped gizzards and some liver
    Chop gizzards with a knife or food processor.
  • 11
    Add chopped meat to rice when rice is nearly done. Stir all together to warm up the gizzards.
  • 12
    You may have to add more gizzard water or butter if the pan seems too dry. It's better if there is extra moisture.
  • G and R another day
    When all is tender, stir in chopped parsley and sliced green onion if desired.
