Deep-Fried Brains – How To

Here’s a delicious recipe for deep-fried cow brains.

Deep-Fried Brains Recipe
from The Whole Beast by Fergus Henderson

INGREDIENTS
1 head of garlic, skin on
4-5 black peppercorns
1 bay leaf
fresh herbs like parsley and thyme
1 pound brains (lamb, pork, calf, or goat)
all purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 quart vegetable oil for deep-frying
kosher salt
PREPARATION
Bring a 2 quart pot of water to simmer and add in the garlic, peppercorns, and herbs. Simmer for 15 minutes. Then gently lower the brains into the pot and simmer for 6 minutes. Remove the brains with a slotted spoon and let cool. When the brains are cold and firm, cut the lobes into 2 inch chunks.
Meanwhile, prepare 3 bowls: In one of them put the flour, in another put the egg whisked with milk, and in the third put the breadcrumbs.
Heat the oil to 350°F. Roll each brain segment in flour, then coat it in the egg mix, then coat it in the breadcrumbs. Deep-fry the breaded brain nuggets until they are golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with kosher salt, and serve immediately.

    Deep fried? No thanks…but veal brains sautéed and served with brown
    butter sauce and capers from Chez Napoleon restaurant on W 50th in NYC is
    my preferred way to eat them and is one of my favorite meals of all time.
    They nearly impossible to find anywhere else.
