DIRECTIONS

  • Bring the wine and stock to the simmer with the herbs and garlic.
  • Add the brains, bring to the simmer, and cook uncovered at just below the simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Allow the brains to cool in the soaking liquid for 20 minutes so they absorb flavor and firm up. Drain them, slice into 1/2" slices and arrange in a serving dish.
  • Beat the tomato paste into the cooking stock and boil down rapidly until the liquid is reduced to 1 1/2 cups. Take off the burner and beat in the flour-butter mixture; Back on the burner and bring to a boil, stirring, for 1 minute. Salt and pepper as needed.
  • Arrange the carmelized onions and sauteed mushrooms around the brains and strain the sauce over them. Decorate with croutons and parsley. Serve immediately.
  • Serve with rice or with parsley potatoes and green beans for a truly french style dish.
