    In my attempt to reduce costs I've noticed that cow brain is very cheap, is it any good?

    The texture definitely gets some getting used to, as can the cooking techniques required but overall organ meats are an excellent choice for people on a budget or anyone looking to get some more micronutrient value in their meals.

    Ehh, Mad Cow is by far most concentrated in the brain and spinal cord of an infected animal. I have no idea how safe it actually is to eat but that info is more than enough to keep me away from cow brains.

    I had pig brain in Vietnam and it was surprisingly delicious.

    Fried-brain sandwiches are very popular in some places in Ohio. Most have had to switch from cow to pig however due to government regulations.

    I've had fried pig brain, and like the poster above, I was surprised at how good it actually tasted. I just had to get over the fact that I was eating pig brains.

    I don't see an ingredient list on the link in the second post, but I'm assuming the trans fats in that cow brain is most likely CLA.

    fried pig brain sandwiches are surprisingly tasty. Slightly less exotic and incredibly tasty is beef tongue. Beef tongue is amazing

    Werd, but you're still in college? So I guess that means you aren't Steve Blackman?

    Im an ignorant when it comes to diet, I just googled about CLA and it seems it would cause no problems to eat cow or pig brain if it was that type of fat since they are natural, is that right?

    Also I've eating beef heart and liver and they are pretty good, I want to try beef kidney since is very cheap haha, it seems even better than brain cow kidney - Wolfram|Alpha

    I should rename this thread to Innards :icon_lol:

    I've only had kidneys once and that was sauteed with mushrooms, onion, and bacon. Was pretty good. You could make a very tasty, cheap and healthy meal with just the onion kidneys and mushrooms.

    YOu can find beef kidney in just about any grocery store I would think

    Sadly, that isn't true. At least not around here. I have to go to the "black" grocery store for organ meat, and pig ears/feet/tails and meaty bones for my dog. Not an inconveniences for me though since I shop there 95% of the time as it is. Damn white people.

    They don't always have much organ meat either, but when they do it's super cheap. Whole kidneys for like $0.89. Can even get suet for around $0.50 a pound. Grain fed sadly, but still.

    That's what holds me back. I have enough grains in my diet as well as regular beef, that I don't know about including another source. Maybe I'm just overthinking it, but that's where I'm at right now.
