Karen From Colorado's Note:
These are made from what is left after many ranchers castrate the spring calves. Many times they are just roasted over a campfire but the recipe below is what is served in local Colorado restaurants. Don't be a sissy about them. They are actually very good. Of course my prep time does not include the time to remove these meats from the animal.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Split the tough skin-like muscle that surrounds each "oyster" (use a sharp knife). You can also remove the skin easily if the meat is frozen and then peeled while thawing.
- 2Soak in a pan of salt water one hour; drain.
- 3Transfer to a large pot and add enough water to float the meat.
- 4Add the vinegar to the pot.
- 5Parboil, drain and rinse.
- 6Let cool and slice each oyster into 1/4 inch thick ovals.
- 7Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of sliced oyster to taste.
- 8Combine flour, cornmeal and some garlic powder to taste.
- 9Roll each slice into flour mixture.
- 10Dip into milk.
- 11Roll again into flour mixture.
- 12Dip into wine.
- 13(repeat the procedure for a thicker crust).
- 14Fry in hot oil or fat seasoned with the bottled hot sauce to taste (be careful, it will sizzle when you add the hot sauce); fry until golden brown.
- 15Drain on paper towels.
- 16Serve with cocktail sauce if desired.
