The Testicle Taco Truck

It’s a dream come true! I’ve bought a food truck and will from now on be selling testicle tacos on the streets of Stockholm. The Testicle Taco Truck has already been nominated for best food truck in The Best Food Truck Of The Year Awards 2016. Wow!

How to cook Testicle Tacos with your Coffee Maker – VIDEO

Yay! It’s finally Friday and you know what that mean? “Fredagsmys” of course! I blogged about this Swedish phenomena a couple of months ago, will copy/paste that post under this episode of “Kaffekokarkocken” (=”The Coffe Maker Chef”) - my very own food show that I wrote about yesterday.

In this episode I will show you how to cook Testicle Tacos (what all Swedes eat on the Fredagsmys) with your coffee maker. Unfortunately the subtitles are not ready yet, but I think you will get the hang of it. The HANG of it. Get it? Maybe it’s good that the subs are not ready. I live in Gothenburg, a city in Sweden, that is famous for it’s lousy jokes.

Yeye. This is how you cook Testicle Tacos with a coffee maker!

Update: Now with subtitles!

The text under the clip translates “It almost looks like small labia”. It really does at 0.26! 

                                                                                                                                          

The “Fredagsmys” (the Cosy Friday) is an important, very swedish, thing. And for some reason tacos is the thing we eat on the Fredagsmys while we cuddle up in our pajamas in the sofas in front of Let’s Dance or Swedish Idol and shows like that. There is even a song about the Fredagsmys that’s annoyingly catchy.

Usually the protein in tacos are minced beef or/and pork but I think it’s important to use as much of the animal as possible (as long as we eat meat it’s stupid not to) so that’s why I used testicles from sheep this time. And also because the testicles looked very sweet and funny when I saw them laying there in the meat counter.

Time

1.5 hours

Ingredients

  • Sheep testicles (I used 2 testis)
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Oil
  • Taco Shells
  • Cucumber
  • Red onion
  • Paprika
  • Corn
  • Grated cheese
  • Jalapeño
  • Salad
  • Tomato
  • Guacamole (Dan made this, but I guessed he used avocados, garlic, creme fraiche and some lime)
  • Salsa
  • And other stuff that you prefer in your tacos

Instructions

I knew neither how testicle should taste, how it should look and definitely not how it’s supposed to be cooked. But somehow they turned out great!

At first you have to rinse and scale the testicles. Divide them into slightly smaller pieces. Or well, that depends of how well hung the sheep were, maybe you don’t need to do this. But one of the testies I bought was freaking huge.

Add the pieces of testies in the coffee can, pour water into the brewer and start the coffee maker. Coffee maker cook for so-so 20 minutes. Chop up all the accessories in the meantime and prepare the guacamole.

When the testies become completely cooked, i.e. (what I think is) more grayish and spongy and less like a jelly fish, drain and rinse the disgusting stuff of from the balls. It sticks a lot of old testicular mucus which I don’t think should be there. Chop up the testies so it will become like testicular mince. Season with taco seasoning. Of course.

Heat the oil directly on the coffee maker plate and add the taco testicular mince. Coffee maker fry until the minced testies get a nice golden color. Turn off the coffee maker.

Serve the testies with whatever you want inside your testicle taco and let the Fredagsmys begin!

It’s impossible not to fall in love with these!

I didn’t think a testicle would have this consistency. Like a mix between chicken fillet and jelly fish.

I like to have many balls in the air.

And what did it taste like? Great! I think maybe like a mix between chicken and quorn with a hint of sweaty balls. Maybe I just imagined the last part.

How to cook Pork Knuckles with your coffee maker

Ha! A well known swedish news paper called me yesterday for an interview about the nose to tail trend. I think that she probable called to ask me about my opinion because of my testicle tacos recipe. And I’m glad to get the opportunity to officially be a pro nose to tail person. Because I DO think it’s very important to at least try to cook with “strange” ingredients if you eat meat. At least one time! To say that something you have never tried is disgusting is stupid. If you gladly eat the asses of different animals, why not try the balls as well?

One thing that is disgusting though is pork knuckles. Well, if you ask me. You should try it for yourself and see. Here’s how you can try to cook it with your coffee maker.

Time

6 hours + cooling

Ingredients

  • 1 divided knuckle of pork
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 6 pieces of allspice berries
  • 2 bay leaves
  • White pepper
  • A lot of salt (like 2 tbsp of it)

Instructions

Thaw feet if necessary. Shave, scrub and rinse the halves well. Chop up the onion and the carrot. Put this together with the spices in the coffee maker can. Pour water into the machine and start the coffee maker. Let stand for about 6 hours, or until the meat is soft and starts to detach from the bone.

Let the halves cool off in the stock, this will solidify into some kind of gelatinous mess that will taste wonderful.

No, I actually thought it was disgusting. But my main problem with this dish is that I have an issue with eating meat directly from bones. It’s the same with chicken legs or spare ribs.

But at least I tried it!

It just felt right to eat the pork knuckle naked on the floor.
