Mix all ingredients of marinade and add armadillo. Marinate about 8 hrs., turning meat occasionally. Remove armadillo and reserve marinade. Melt butter in deep skillet and brown armadillo pieces. Pour in marinade and bring to a boil. Stir in seasoning, cover and simmer until tender (about 1 - 1 1/4 hours.) Remove skillet from the fire and place armadillo pieces on a warmed platter.
Mix mustard and cornstarch, then mix in cream. Return skillet to low heat and stir in this mixture a little at a time. Stir sauce until hot, but not boiling, and thickened. Pour sauce over armadillo. Serve with steamed rice.
CDKitchen note: this was posted to rec.food.recipes - we can’t quite imagine eating armadillo - but hey, who are we to judge!
A Texas buddy once said he and his family ate these things all the time.
I didn’t know if he was kidding or not...
Pardon me, do you have any Poupon?
In Texas, you gotta eat around the tire tracks.
