Skirt & kidney’s?

I am off for the weekend! To give you a clue of where I am going, here is a traditional recipe found on ifoodtv that hails from where I will be staying:

skirt n kidney stew


2 pork kidneys

3 onions

2 pounds lean pork trimmings or 2 pounds shoulder of pork

1 cup water

A pinch of herbs

2 parsnips, sliced or 1 pound pickled spareribs

Salt and pepper

1 1/2 tablespoons flour

1 1/2 tablespoons bacon drippings

How to make Skirts And Kidneys
Cut the kidneys into small pieces and cut the pork in strips.
Toss both in the seasoned flour and fry lightly in the drippings.
Slice the onions and put in the bottom of the pot with the meats on top.
Add the water, herbs, and seasoning and simmer for a half hour.
Add 2 sliced parsnips and continue cooking
until all is tender.
Sometimes 1 pound of pickled pork spareribs is added to the stew at the beginning of cooking.
Then the parsnips are left out.
Traditionally, this dish is eaten with potatoes boiled in their jackets and with parsnips or mashed turnips on the side.

Have a great weekend!!
