Yeah, partially digested stomach contents are quD, burgh quD to be specific.

I know a while back there was a discussion about some Klingon dish that is
the partly digested stomach contents of some animal. I am assuming that this
is not the same thing, but rather the abdominal organs of an animal taken as
a whole, and used for food.

From the glossary:

taknar gizzards (taqnar)
The contents of the belly of an animal, served as food.

        Even if we accept it (it was neither written by nor "approved
        by" Marc
        Okrand), I'm pretty sure the word refers to the animal itself,
        not to
        the body parts (or the dish prepared from them).

You are probably right. This was one of the few words sent to me by another
Klingon speaker. Since I don't have a copy of the book I had no way to look
up the context or to verify it. I'll update it to "Taknar (Animal)".
