My Goose is Cooked!
by SuSu

"Obi-wan, my goose is cooked!"

The Jedi Master heard the familiar voice of his former padawan over their private frequency comlink. This was a vaguely disguised code phrase which indicated that one of them was under very heavy fire, but that the situation was under control, and that the next phase of the operation must commence immediately. They had opted to use a phrase that in the common vernacular conveyed panic and desperation, in case any sentient beings were listening in on the transmission.

Obi-wan knew that Anakin was drawing fire away from the main part of the battle, and it would be up to him to wrap things up. "Mmmm," he thought to himself of the leftovers left at base camp, "a goose wrap would be just the thing when this is over."

Obi-wan promised that he'd make some up for him and Anakin, as he dropped proton torpedoes into the enemy station controls, obliterating the threat to the planetary system below.

    Goose
  • goose breast
  • brine
  • vegetable oil
Remove the skin from the goose and bone out the breast. Place in a lidded container, covering it with cold brine. Cover and refrigerate 12 hours.

Heat the oven to 350°F / 175°C. Drain the goose and pat dry with paper towels. Rub with vegetable oil, and place on a rack placed in a roasting pan. Roast till the internal temperature is about 140°F / 60°C. It should be a bit rare. Remove from the oven and cover loosely with foil, and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving. Or let it cool (without foil) to room temperature before slicing.

    Goose Wrap
  • roasted goose breast, sliced against the grain, very thin
  • flour tortilla
  • hoisin sauce
Warm the tortilla in the microwave, or put two of them together and plate in a hot, dry frying pan. Flip without separating them, and separate them after both sides are toasted and hot. Lay the tortilla on a plate (softer side up) and lay some slices of goose down the middle, the drizzle or smear some hoisin sauce alongside. Roll up the tortilla — you don't want to overfill it. Goose is quite a rich meat!

NOTE: You can use any cooked lean meat, sliced very thinly across the grain for this wrap. But the stronger taste of goose is really wonderful, try it if you can!
