anyone know where you can get Rocky Mountain Oysters in Las Vegas area or on the way from Phoenix.
No idea but thought that was more a Plains item than a Southwest item ?
I have seen them in Montana and Wyoming, deep fried as I recall. Long time ago though.
Side note........drive the speed limit from Kingman to Vegas if you go that way......heard it is well patrolled
People eat those? Really? I thought they were a joke. It hurts just to think about it.
"Rocky Mountain oysters, also known as prairie oysters in Canada, also calf fries, is a dish made of cattle testicles. The organs are often deep-fried after being peeled, coated in flour, pepper and salt, and sometimes pounded flat. This delicacy is most often served as an appetizer."
I don't remember the occasion of the party that was being prepped for, it may have been a Christmas party based on the timing and the deer hunting stories/trophies I was shown, but there were two cowboys with a huge collection of calf testicles collected during the year prepping them to be fried that evening. These are folks that make their living working cattle (and all kinds of other ranch-related chores) for various ranchers around the area. I didn't go back in the evening for the party, so I didn't taste them, but I am sure they did a good job with them.
I've done a little of that kind of work with my tiny herd of cattle; I never took the time to save them to eat later!
If done right, they are fantastic!
I thought Searsucker had them at Caesars, but I don't see them on the menu on their website.
Do you have access to a car? I wonder if one of the outlying "southern restaurants" serve them.
Yes , we are driving from Phoenix on Sunday and staying at MSS. I'll keep checking.
