Stuffed Cornish Game Hens, CROCKPOT STYLE!

Cooking from scratch and using all natural / organic ingredients can be quite a challenge. Not to mention, the time it takes to cook. Some cases, you have to actually tend to what you are working for a long periods of time. Realistically, in this day and age, it is so hard to find the time to be able to stay in the kitchen, let alone anytime to yourself. Ever since I've had my son, I've come to find that my crockpot is my best friend! You can actually cook some very nice meals, and all you have to do is prep it which can take nearly 15 to 20 minutes, and just walk away.

Tonight, we made Stuffed Cornish Game Hens. Below is the recipe and pictures. ENJOY!


STUFFED CORNISH GAME HEN

Ingredients:
Any stuffing recipe or package or....
1 cup cooked wild rice

3 teaspoons of citrus zest (I use orange, sometimes lemon)
4 cloves of garlic

2 - 1 to 2 pound game hens, rinsed and dried
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups vegetable or beef broth
1 cup red wine

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon of oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper



If using rice, cook the rice. After cooking the rice, add your choice of zest and the garlic. Mix.


In a small bowl, stir together the beef broth, red wine, mustard, basil, oregano, and black pepper. Set aside.


Stuff the game hens with the rice or stuffing.

Heat a large pan with the olive oil and butter over medium heat. DO NOT USE HIGH HEAT. Add the game hens and sear them on all sides to brown. Transfer the game hens (head down, or sew the bottoms) into your crock pot. . After placing the game hens in the crock pot, pour the liquid mixture over the top of the game hens.


Cook in crock pot on HIGH for 3 to 5 hours.

Serve with your choice of vegetable, with the stuffed WILD RICE (or stuffing of choice) and GAME HEN.


Bon App├ętit!

In this recipe, I used all organic and natural ingredients mostly from Whole Foods Market. Check to see if there is a store near you.
