Sweetbreads are a gland in beef cattle and they are commonly used in Latin American cuisine. We like them in tiny pieces, but others make them in larger portions.


Serves: 4 

  • 500g beef sweetbreads
  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (250ml) oil for frying
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Tear the sweetbreads apart into 3cm sections. Discard the stringy ligaments that hold them together. Rinse with water as you go. Dip the slightly wet sweetbreads into flour.
  2. Heat 1 cm oil in a large heavy frypan. Fry the sweetbreads in the hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
