    Joe Bob Mac's Note:

    Mom made this for us kids and it became something that was requested. Hard to believe, an organ meat that my mother turned into what we, as kids, considered delectable.

    • 1 -2 cup flour (divided)
    • 2 liters Coca-Cola
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/2 cup real butter

    2. 2
      Place rinsed gizzards in boiling pot.

      These are without a doubt the best gizzards I have ever had. And trust me I've been eating them since I was a kid(20+ yrs). I give them 20 stars!! The first time I made them with all coke & they were too sweet, cokey tasting. Since then I use about 2/3 bottle coke and some water, maybe 3 cups or so and they are soooo tender and yummy. For my seasoned flour I use black pepper, season salt, onion powder & garlic powder. Also I just deep fry in veg.oil instead of pan frying in butter. Thanks for posting Joe!!

      I thought these were the worst gizzards I've tried. The coke didn't seem to tenderize the meat but made it mushy, almost like a liver consistency. Not at all impressed. Sorry
