Cuy Recipe

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Ghost » Sat Oct 14, 2017 5:47 pm


Well the only way I've eaten cuy so far is what I called "Steamed Cuy In a flour tortilla".

Simple recipe, put a 1/4 inch of water in a pan maybe a dash of powdered garlic (I don't think I used enough to effect the flavor). put steamer basket in pot. Place whole guinea pig on basket (I used skin-off guinea pig). Simmer on low heat until the meat changes color and is cooked. Pick meat off bone and wrap in warm flour tortillas. Enjoy!!

I'm really debating weather I should try something like cuy and dumplings (one of my fav rabbit recipes), or whether I should do the tortillas again.

Cuy has a much stronger flavor than rabbit. Honestly, I don't know what I would do to have a rabbit and cuy stew.

Ps. I've always favored simple recipes when I was cooking rabbits from our rabbitry

Thanks for posting this, Ghost. The idea of eating guinea pig is new to many people, but posts like yours help familiarize us with it.

Thank you

Although I have yet to adventure into eating Guinea Pigs... I always wondered what show breeders do with their extras...lol
I assume skinny pigs would be favoured for eating, because they already have less hair.. :)
