The Instacart guide to beef kidney

About beef kidney

Beef kidney is one of the most popular and currently trending meals. It is a meal appreciated by millions across the world. Beef kidneys can be slow-cooked as part of a classic dish or go into a dish on their own. Beef kidney makes a healthy and tasty meal and complements a diet with trace elements and nutritional vitamins. It is also a quick and easy meal to prepare.

While beef kidneys aren't as popular as veal and lamb kidneys, they can make flavorful and tender cuts if prepared correctly. However, they require braising over moist, low heat to soften because of their large size and toughness. Eating beef kidneys is beneficial in numerous ways, including adding a sense of excitement to a dish, ensuring maximum use of all parts of a cow, and providing fat-soluble vitamins and proteins.

Beef kidneys are rich in protein, and according to the USDA, a 3-ounce serving contains 23.2 grams of protein. Beef kidneys are also a good source of purines, which are compounds that break down into uric acid. People diagnosed with gout should avoid beef kidneys as too much uric acid in the blood can stimulate the development of uric acid crystals, which can exacerbate gout symptoms.

FAQs About Beef Kidney

Many recipes recommend soaking beef kidneys in brine before cooking. Soaking helps mellow the taste and draw out the flavor. While soaking can work for pan-frying or grilling, it may not be applicable to a recipe where boiling is involved. Boiling also makes kidneys tasty and ensures no hint of ammonia. However, be sure to regulate temperature by setting the lid and adjusting the flame to find the best boiling point.

Little to no cleaning and preparation is required before beef kidneys are ready to be cooked. It all depends on your preference. Some people prefer trimming the central part of fat, while others prefer boiling beef kidneys with as much fat as possible. To thin out the beef kidneys, use a sharp knife to cut or remove the fat and meat membrane. Store the trimmed fat to cook with later.
