Ingredients:

  • 5-6 lb. turtle meat

  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil

  • 4 cloves garlic

Directions:

Cut turtle in small pieces and season. Brown in cooking oil. (Cook until all water is gone and turtle is brown.) Set meat aside.


To oil and drippings add flour and make roux. To roux add onions both yellow and green, celery, bell pepper (holy trinity) and garlic. Cook until wilted.
