Because it is hard to find, fried cow’s brain is a treat for my family.

Ingredients

  • 1 beef brain
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • oil to fry
  • Tony Chachere's or Cajun Seasonings

Directions

Step 1

Gently take brain in palm of hand and remove the membrane that covers entire brain. Sometimes there are also small blood clots embedded in brain which have to be removed.

Step 2

Season brain with Tony Chachere's or Cajun seasonings (salt, black pepper and cayenne). Mix flour and corn meal in bowl.

Step 3

Gently put brain in mixture to coat entire outer area. Drop in very hot oil and fry approximately five minutes. The time will depend on size. If brain is large it will take five minutes. It the brain is in small pieces, just cook until golden brown.

Caution - make sure your oil is fresh or the oil will boil over when brain is put in. Save calories, season the brain as above and sauté until brown in a small amount of oil turning once.
