How would you prepare lamb kidneys?

I scored 2 pastured lamb kidneys for $0.88 from the butcher on my way home from work tonight! (I'm addicted to popping in to see what's there... I buy bones at least 3 times a week for stock :)

So friends, what do I do with these babies? Please share your recipes and suggestions.

With thanks, Jen

That is a glowing endorsement! Tanks for sharing- I'm planning to make them tonight. The lamb was butchered yesterday, so I have a feeling I shouldn't wait tooo much longer - from what I've read online the fresher the better.

I usually bake some marrow bones on cast iron skilet, and fry the livers in the drippings briefly. Scooping out the marrow and top the kidneys. :)

Thank you and your DH- do you think coconut oil instead of butter would be as good? I can't do any dairy...

When I was little my father used to make lamb kidney for breakfast on the weekends. He'd fry onions and add the chopped kidneys with lots of ground coriander, black pepper, and some cumin. Sometimes he would add mushrooms.

You've probably already made them, but I loved this recipe calling for lamb kidneys in an avocado sauce:

http://www.weareneverfull.com/when-life-gives-you-veal-kidneys/ (scroll halfway down the page for the avocado recipe)

I am making an effort to eat offal but this was the first recipe where I really enjoyed every single bite!

I can't say I really enjoy the taste of kidney but a good way to incorporate them into your diet is getting your butcher to prepare you an offal sausage. My personal recipe is 50% ground pork, 25% beef/lamb kidney, and 25% Liver (I prefer beef to lamb) and spice wise: fresh marjoram, basil and sea salt. I usually eat at least one a day... so delicious.

Make some sauce out of good lamb stock, and cream. Fry the livers, leave them pink inside. You can dust the kidneys in colmans mustard powder, cayenne or espelette pepper etc. Put the spices and kidneys to old paper bag and shake to distribute the spices evenly. I dont personally salt kidneys at all since the ones i get are sufficiently salty.

I like lamb kidneys, very tender. They just go bad faster than any other offal so get them really fresh.

Lamb kidneys have such a delicate flavor. My favorite way to eat them is cut into small pieces and gently boiled/simmered in water. This works especially well if they still have their fat on them. Yum!

My DH (the chef) says:

"Slice open & cut out the white stuff in the middle. Fry very briefly in butter. Sprinkle w/Worcestershire sauce & lemon juice before serving." Small servings since they are strong.

I mixed kidneys with ground meat once in a chili and could barely taste them. Worked great and the chili was extra nutritious.
