Learn how to cook lamb kidneys from the experts at Good Housekeeping. Anyone can learn this simple video recipe for cooking kidneys.
Many cooks can be put off cooking kidneys as they don’t know how to do so without them coming out tough and chewy, but with this quick guide you can learn how to cook lamb kidneys in minutes.
When buying lambs kidneys, make sure they are plump and shiny without any discolouration. They are often sold as a pair, still partly covered in their protective layer of white fat.
You can trim away the white suet fat with a sharp knife and pull off the thin silvery membrane surrounding kidneys. Slice the kidneys in half and use kitchen scissors to snip out fatty core, or you can choose to keep it on, though it can be a little tough.
The easiest method for cooking kidneys is to pan fry them. Melt some butter in a frying pan until foaming then add kidneys and season with salt and pepper. Fry over a high heat for about 2 minutes on each side.
They should only be cooked enough to be browned all over but still pink in middle. Kidneys can also be braised where the slow cooking tenderises them.
