If I wasn’t already psyched about New Amsterdam Market after the oysters, this did it. The fine folks from St. Brigid’s Farm in Maryland came all the way up here to sell their meat, including tons of off cuts that made me incredibly happy.
They had me at Sweetbreads for $3. My jaw dropped. I’ve never seen Sweetbreads available anywhere but on a menu. I almost got them and still sort of wish I had, but I wasn’t going ot have the time to devote to learning new cuts that evening, so I passed.
Instead, I bought veal cheeks and a veal tongue. I braised them both, cooking the cheeks in a mixture of veal stock and veal demiglace. The tongue I simmered in rich pork stock. Mmmm.
This is definitely something I’ve never seen at the Greenmarket:
