Drunken Kidneys

Meat guru, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, inspired this recipe. In his rendition, he states that, “If you don’t like kidney, or you’re not quite sure, this recipe will convert you.” I fell in the “not quite sure category”, but I also believe it’s important to consume the whole animal, so thought I would give it a try. I was quickly converted. It is a delicious dish, and would make a terrific hors d’oeuvre for your next party.

Ingredients:
1 – Wild Idea Buffalo Kidney
1 – cup milk
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – cup mushrooms, chopped
2 – tablespoons cider vinegar
¼ – cup red current or plum jelly
1 – cup dry sherry
1 – cup white wine
2 – teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
¼ – teaspoon cayenne, *I added more
1 – tablespoon, Dijon mustard
1 – tablespoon cream or sour cream
fresh parsley and chives, chopped

Preparation:
1) Rinse kidney, pat dry, and cut into pieces. Place kidney in a bowl and cover with the milk. Soak for 2 to 24 hours. Drain the milk from the kidney and pat dry.

2) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Add the kidney and season with the salt and pepper. Sauté until browned, tossing or stirring occasionally.

3) Stir in the mushrooms and sauté for a couple more minutes.

4) Add the cider vinegar and then the jelly. Stir to incorporate.

5) Add the sherry, wine, Worcestershire, cayenne, and Dijon. Stir to incorporate. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 30 minutes.

6) Remove lid and stir in cream. Season to taste, garnish with fresh herbs, and serve with toast points

Ingredients:

1 – pkg. Buffalo 2.5 lbs. BBQ Back Ribs or 3 lbs. Short Rib Strips
2/3 – cup ketchup
Jerk Marinade

Ingredients:

1 – cup pineapple juice
¼ – cup soy
3 – cloves garlic

Preparation:
1 – Rinse ribs and pat dry with paper towel.
2 – Mix all marinade ingredients together in blender and pulse to incorporate.
3 – Divide marinade in half.
4 – For BACK RIBS: Place ribs and half of marinade in plastic bag and massage marinade into ribs. Marinate ribs for 4 to 24 hours hours. For SHORT RIBS: Place ribs in slow cooker with half of marinade and 1 cup of water. Cover and braise for 6 hours on medium. Increase heat to shorten braising time or decrease heat to lengthen braising time. Meat will become very tender and bones may fall away. If your preference is for chewier ribs decrease braising time.
5 – Mix the other half of marinade with ketchup and set aside.
6 – Remove ribs from marinade, shaking off excess, (do carefully for braised ribs, as meat will be fall apart tender). Place ribs on foil, curling edges of foil to hold ribs in place, but leaving top open. Brush both sides of ribs with Jerk BBQ sauce.
7 – Pre-heat gas grill to medium high heat of about 400°.
8 – Place foil pan of ribs on grill over heat and make a few slits in the foil with a knife. Close grill lid and grill for 6 minutes each side. Remove SHORT RIBS, but repeat process for BACK RIBS adding more sauce if desired.

Serve Jerk Buffalo Ribs with Fruited Coleslaw, and Coconut Rice with Black Beans. These accompaniments are very complimentary to this dish.
