- 1 pound beef sweetbreads
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup oil for frying
- salt and pepper to taste
step 1: Tear the sweetbread apart into 1 inch sections. Discard the stringy ligaments that hold it together. Rinse with water as you go. Dip the slightly wet sweetbreads into flour.
step 2: Heat 1/2 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet. 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.
