Was awesome. I use it for raw pate. Unfortunately the cow heart wasn’t the greatest. After defrosting it had a bit of a funk to it. Didn’t end up eating it. Brain was great though. 🤘🤘
The veal brain is delicious! I took it out of the package, sautéed it until it was cooked through (I tried a tiny taste of it raw and it was delish) and if someone gave this to me blindfolded, I would think I was eating delicious creamy scrambled eggs. So good! I ate a third of it yesterday morning, put the remainder in the fridge, and enjoyed another portion this morning for breakfast (only this time I had it with veal liver. Wow! What a fantastic meal!). I didn’t do anything to it other than sauté it and add salt. It was wonderful!
Extremely delicious raw and cats love it too
I eat these raw. No issues. I did find a small black spot on the brain that I cut off. It appeared to only be superficial. Other than that the brain felt firm (for brain). Veal is typically slaughtered between 16-18 weeks which makes them safe from Mad Cow/BSE which develops after about 30 months of age. Therefor, the black spot was probably fine but why eat presumably dead cells they serve no purpose.
The expiration date will not matter if it's frozen. Use your senses, eyes and nose and then taste to determine if there is an issue. Frankies products have always had my back with replacement/returns if needed just be a kind human and have respect. Some of you are animals over keyboards.
- A soft firmness. Like a soft but not warm butter
- Fatty but doesn't stick to your mouth like bone marrow or butter it's more gentle.
- Not much really, it's honestly all mouth feel. It will taste almost just as it smells which is very, very mild. Tastes pink, if that makes sense. A very soft, gentle color and taste alike.
How to eat
- Raw, cut into bit sized pieces think chicken nuggets. No salt was needed the taste is enjoyable. You can add honey or maybe a quality maple syrup/agave. I eat all my organs in 2-3oz servings and always raw. Brain is best to let it completely thaw. Other organs I eat about 50-70% thaw but brain is enjoyable 100% thawwed and given a couple of minutes (after cutting) outside the fridge. Not room temp but not too cold.
- Use a sharp knife to cut when thawed or cut into chick nugget sized bites while frozen. Cuts extremely easy when frozen but can be difficult when thawed due to the soft texture. Sharp knife/carving knife is no factor.
- I recommend weighting the entire brain and determining how to cut it given that each portion you each should be 2-3oz. For mine, that was in half. So I thaw the whole half and eat it within the week. Save the other half for 2-3 weeks later. Yours might work best to cut into 3rds.
I was sold meat past it’s sell by date.
