Lambs' kidneys on brioche

We've been waiting to cook LAMBS' KIDNEYS in port sauce ever since eating something similar in a restaurant.
The dish is very easy to make, and despite its budget status, the lambs kidneys were extremely more-ish. We served ours on sweet toasted brioche with a few pieces of grilled sweet bacon and a sticky port sauce.
Did you know kidneys contain approximately one calorie per gram, making this tasty starter very low in calories. Here's our easy recipe:

LAMBS' KIDNEYS ON BRIOCHE
Ingredients (serves two)
4-6 lambs' kidneys - halved and cored
Oil/butter
Large glass red wine
Small glass of port

One shallot
One clove garlic
Thyme

One teaspoon redcurrant jelly
Salt and pepper
****
Pan fry the kidneys in a little oil/butter.  

Cook for around 3 minutes either side. Overcooking will make them tough.

Set kidneys aside on a plate to rest.

Place the wine and port into a saucepan.

Add the chopped shallot, garlic and thyme to the saucepan.

Boil and reduce ingredients to about a quarter. 

Add any pan juices from the cooked kidneys.

Strain. 

Return strained sauce to the saucepan and taste for seasoning. 

Add redcurrant jelly, salt and pepper to taste.

We began our weight loss journey in January 2011 - and began our blog in June 2011. Here's a link to the first post. (here's the link).
We like to post our main meals to show you what CAN be eaten. You won’t find us posting every last morsel though – but we hope this gives you an idea of how far calories can go! I'm currently going through the photographs and replacing them with more website friendly versions which will allow the blog to load quickly.
