  • How do you Cook Sweetbread?

    I saw some beef sweetbread at the butcher today (new food to me) and I was wondering if anyone knows how to cook it?

    Thanks in advance,
    -Grok

    I'm cooking some right now!

    It's quite easy. If they have been cleaned by the butcher (usually the case), this is what you do:

    - Cut into ~ 4 oz pieces.
    - Sprinke with some salt and lemon juice.
    - Grill for ~ 15 - 25 min / side or broil in hi for 20-30 min/side.

    Add some more lemon juice before serving.

      Mark's got a yummy looking sweetbread salad on here somewhere. I've been wanting to try it, but I haven't gotten them from my butcher yet.

        I don't

        But Chris Cosentino, the chef/partner at Incanto in NoCal has great information on "fifth quarter" foods on his blog, youtube etc

        His website is http://www.offalgood.com/

        "On offer are lamb’s necks, pig trotters and a five-course nose-to-tail tasting menu perhaps including venison kidneys and chocolate-blood panna cotta.""

            I'm drooling over the thought of a chocolate blood panna cotta! I was just in the Bay Area this past weekend. I will be sure to check it out next time I go down there. I imagine it's pretty expensive though.

            Thanks for all the great links!

              What does it taste like? Is it sweet?

                  Not particularly. The consistency is similar to that of scallops. The taste is mild, a little like what a mixture of beef and chicken would taste like. Give it a try. Don't add bacon or anything to it the first time, the taste by itself is quite appealing. A little salt and lemon is all I would add to them.

                      I may just be stupid but exactly what part of the animal is 'sweetbread'? Does it refer to any type of offal? Just curious, I've got a feeling I won't be trying any....

                        Usually the thymus and pancrease.
                        It is sad that the measuring stick of our progress is the speed by which we distance ourselves from the natural world. Even sadder is that we will only see this when there is no nature left to save.
