2012/05/17 by Varga László

Ingredients (2 persons)

  • 400 g veal testicles
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 tablespoons duck lard, or vegetable oil
  • 3-4 smaller green peppers
  • 6-8 black peppercorns
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 3 stalks green garlic
  • 2-3 small tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 fresh thyme branches
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 100 g white flour
  • 100 g sour creme
  • some parsley for garnishing


Preparation method:

  1. Clean the testicles of the excess skins and wash carefully. Let them in soak for about half an hour in water mixed with some vinegar and then again for another half hour in plain water to wash off the vinegar sourness. If still has vinegar smell wash again in water.
  2. Chop the onion. Heat the lard in a pan and fry the chopped onion until fragrant.
  3. Chop the green peppers and add them to the pan together with some water, paprika, salt and peppercorns. Simmer for 30-40 minutes until the peppers are soft.
  4. Add the cleaned testicles to the pan and water to cover everything with liquid. Start  again the simmering process.
  5. Chop the green garlic and add together with the thyme branches to the stew. Simmer for about an hour from the testicle addition.
  6. Dice the tomatoes into small cubes, add them to the stew pan together with the sour creme and simmer for another 15 minutes. Taste the stew and season to taste with salt, pepper and paprika.
  7. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Add gradually the flour and season with some salt. Mix with a fork and add some more flour until it gets to a thicker consistency.
  8. With the help of a teaspoon put small amounts of the egg-flour mix to the stew to make the noodles. If not enough liquid to boil in the pan add a little more water. Boil for 5 minutes.
  9. Serve hot the the stew with testicles and noodles, garnish with some freshly chopped parsley leaves and a spoonful of sour creme.

    That sure looks yummy! BUT… knowing that those are testicles, I’m not sure if I could eat them. 😀
