Who likes Rocky Mountain Oysters?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 07, 2011 at 5:08 AM

In my last order of grassfed ground beef, I asked for the organs, too. To my surprise they included the bull testicles. Why haven't I seen any posts or recipes for Rocky Mountain Oysters on any paleo blogs? Actually there aren't many recipes at all floating around the internet ~ they were all basically the same deep fried recipe. So I made some today and ate them with a bit of Cholula hot sauce:

Three out of five in my family actually liked them. Hubby wasn't amused that I duped him, though. Bwa haha haha!

Anyone else have a different way of fixin these big guys up?

Mine weren't calamari chewy. They were almost the texture of scallops. Could probably get away with calling them that. ;-) I used a coconut/rice flour blend as well as almond meal for the coating.

Grilled Tarantula is DELICIOUS! Don't knock it until you've tried it.

Did you coat yours in coconut flour and fry in lard?

the recipe called for par-broiling them first. Not sure if it's really necessary, but they didn't taste overdone.

You're liable to get a "Rocky Mountain High".

They are a delicacy all over south Asia - although goat is the preferred animal. They are generally cooked over a skillet, with butter/tallow, salt, pepper, cumin powder, coriander powder, a little tomato puree and cayenne. Can get a bit too spicy this way, but delicious nevertheless.

gross. i don't want to eat anything's testicles. same reason that i don't want to eat a tarantula, or a beetle, or a big worm. i just don't mess around with stuff like this.

instead, i just grill up a delicious steak, slam some pasture butter on there and call it a day.

i'd like to try them sometimes, but im slightly grossed out. the scene in Apocalypto where the chubby guy eats raw pig testes.... yuck haha. i'll ask my local grass fed beef farm if they have them for sale though. sounds interesting, and i've become pretty daring since going paleo. =)

Ha! We call 'em calf fries in Texas. They are delicacies in fairs and rodeos. I've only had them deep fried, and they were a little chewy, but actually pretty delicious! i'm going to try the paleo batter and fry these things in some bacon grease i've been saving up, then see if the wife likes them (I'll have to tell a little white lie, of course) I know already I'll like them. Hard part is finding them...

I haven't thought to ask my butcher, who raises and sells bison meat, if I could get bison testicles. However, they are not part of the offal from our grass-fed beef, since steers have been divested of theirs.

ah, balls, it's all mental. i think of it as caviar.

these look way too over-fried, looks like KFC chicken. i fry them very rare. got no balls to eat them raw yet.

I've eaten bison testicles on several occasions and they are always good. After removing the skins, I just slice them thin and do a simple pan fry with salt, pepper and some curry seasoning.
