Rocky Mountain Oysters

From Carbondale, Colorado.  A little rodeo action, a cowboy bar, and something you probably don't prepare a lot.


Bull testicles


Black pepper

White pepper


Vegetable or peanut oil

Sauces such as barbecue, horseradish, ranch dressing, hot sauce

      The Recipe

Rocky Mountain Oysters (bull testicles) can be purchased online ($15-$20 per pound).  If not already sliced, slice into pieces about 1/4" thick.  Season flour with peppers and salt to taste.

In a deep fryer or deep skillet, heat an inch of oil until it passes the sizzle test.  Dip 'oysters' in flour mixture and fry until lightly golden, about 2 - 3 minutes.  Do not overcook or they will be tough.  Eat straight up, splashed with a little lemon, or with your choice of sauces.  They're really tender, taste like chicken liver, and of course, are a real conversation piece.
