This is a great recipe - but I really don’t see how you can cook gizzards for ‘30-40 min until tender’! It takes a minimum of 1h30 to 2h before they are tender

Enjoyed the meal. It is difficult to always get chourico. when this happens can you suggest an alternative?

Hi John, if you live in the US, you can order chouriço online, a good substitute would be linguica, but if you can’t get that either then I suggest the chorizo (Spanish).
