Thanks to the anons who weighed in in the earlier thread about how to prepare beef kidneys. I'm going to follow sally fallon's directions for prep and recipe for kidneys in mushroom sauce. Further advice/commentary on cooking with offal welcome here.

So I presume this white stuff is the tough cortex to be discarded, not the "knob of very nourishing fat" so I'll chop it up and see if the chickens will eat it. Yell if I'm wrong please

Chopped and marinating in the juice of four lemons

Its my first time... What kind of kidneys do you eat, and how do you like it prepared?

I've had cow liver and tripe. What does kidney taste like?

TalkBomber

wow that looks disgusting, but i really hope you enjoy your dish. i don't care for the taste of meat

I usually get lamb kidney. Just frying it with some onion, mushrooms and garlic in ample fat and high heat is good for me. It's sort of like a more meaty liver IMO, so you can probably use it in all kinds of dishes.

oops, I meant organ meat

Definitely chicken-approved.
Ok, I'll be back after a few hours of marinating.

That's what I hope to find out... lately I've become comfortable with liver, heart and marrow. Sweetbreads will be my next experiment. Never tried tripe, what's it like?
Seems iffy to me, too, but I'm hoping it turns out tasty. Even if it tastes gross I will know its good for me. BTW bacon-wrapped chicken hearts are extremely easy to eat.
Mmm, nice. What kind of fat do you prefer for cooking it? (Presumably I'll use butter/beef fat for these) The farmer I got this from raises lamb, too-- I'll have to see if lamb kidneys are available next time.

Never tried tripe, what's it like?

Last time I had tripe was a couple of years ago in an italian stew I can't really remember what it taste like.

The texture looks like a sponge, what's it like to chew that stuff?

tripe has the texture of al dente pasta and a weak meaty flavor

That sounds great actually, I should try it.

I buy kidney and other offal whenever it's on sale but I never make anything good out of them. Just fry and share with the dogs.

Hopefully you can correct my ways user

Ok its time I'm excited I'm hungry. Got my kidneys marinated in lemon, shiitake and maitake mushrooms, stock, fake creme fraiche, dijon mustard, red wine, soft butter, and beef fat.

Like mom says, "I looove cooking with wine! Sometimes, I even put it in the food."

Looks like you may have overcrowded it

Yeah or not hot enough too

"Do not overcook-they should be pink inside. Transfer to a heated platter and keep warm in the oven."

"Pour out the browning fat." Goes against all nature to discard pan juices... would it have some disagreeable taste from the kidney juices? Tastes very acidic (lemony) but, not really objectionable

It's probably just to keep the sauce from getting too greasy.

Cooking mushrooms now. That brown stuff in the bowl is pan juices/browning fat

Hm, I can see that, but might add some back in at the end. Just caught the cat trying to sneak some of my "creme fraiche" little punkass

How does it taste?

The kidneys mostly taste like lemon... a bit chewy... creamy savory sauce. Different, not bad, I am sure I could improve cooking them with practice. But the lemon is a bit overpowering. I think I will seek lamb kidneys next time, maybe they will be a bit softer?

You might experiment with soaking in milk rather than lemon. Sometimes I do that with beef liver to remove some of the metallic taste, and the milk doesn't have a powerful flavor like the lemon would.

iluvmen

Yes thanks for the tip, I will try that next time, I do like liver soaked in milk.

Also, spouse says they taste something of artichoke, with the buttery and the lemony.
