Procedure

Prepare (blanch and trim) sweetbreads according to the procedure on page 280. Leave them whole or cut into uniform serving pieces.

Heat the butter in a large sauté pan (straight-sided). Add the mirepoix and cook over medium heat until lightly browned.

Place the sweetbreads on top of the mirepoix and pour in the demi-glace.

Cover tightly and place in oven at 325°F (165°C), until the sweetbreads are very tender and well flavored with the sauce, about 45-60 minutes.

Remove the sweetbreads from the sauce and place in a hotel pan. Bring the sauce to a rapid boil and reduce slightly. Strain and adjust seasoning. Pour over sweetbreads.
