  • I tried kidney. . its actually pretty good

    I was a little scared but brave at the same time, i took the dive and bought 1.5lb of beef kidney at publix last night, what the hell . . its like a dollar a pound!

    Didn't do anything fancy, soaked in brine for ~1hour, then sauted it in garlic butter and onion for ~5minutes, i put some siracha on it (hot sause) and it was pretty good. Consistency of mushrooms with a little taste of liver.

    anyhoo, i suggest it if you've been wanting to get into organ meat.

      My mum used to make a killer steak & kidney pie. Of course, now I can't eat the pastry, but I should ask for her meat recipe. I think it would be great with cauliflower mash.

        I think I actually like kidney more than liver. It makes a great masala!

          Hmmm... I remember liking kidney as a kid. I have no idea how my Mom prepared them but it was very good.

            omg but lamb kidneys are delish!!! fry up bacon & leave the fat in the pan. saute onions in the fat & add the kidneys to them. serve with over-easy eggs & celery root/turnip hash browns. *drool*

                    Yikes, I made some kidneys last Sunday, lamb kidneys, and once the were about half cooked, my kitchen smelled like the state fair. Like the boxed-in animal pens. I tasted them, and they sure tasted like old pee. Not that I've ever tasted old pee... anyway, I asked around, and apparently some people can detect the, um, aroma, and don't like them, while others just love kidneys. My step-dad loves a good steak and kidney pie, but my mom can't tolerate the pee smell.

                        Sweet. I saw them at my local Publix also and was debating giving them a try. I'm excited. My wife... is not.

                          i got some in my meat order this month, lamb's kidneys. i've been wondering what to do with them. kidneys and brains are the two cuts of offal i've been avoiding. what is an amazing recipe for a newb?

                            I have a bunch of fresh, grass-fed lamb kidneys, hearts, and livers coming in that my butcher is collecting for me, for my dogs. I've thought long and hard about sampling them. I'm pretty excited about the heart, I think I've worked up the nerve to try the liver... but I just don't think I can get over the urine smell of the kidneys. Does soaking them remove the urea, and if so, does it also remove the nutritional benefits along with the old pee?

                              Here's my kidney curry recipe - I just love it. Sounds fiddly - it's not, really!
