  • Yes, lambs brain is delicious.

  • No.

    I've never been to Le Grill'd.

    But if I did, I'd be asking why doesn't mine look like that.

  • Had lamb brains in French cuisine

  • Tastes and looks like cauliflower

  • Is the poll question inclusive of the product being free?
    Would people answer differently if it was not free?

  • Ox brainnnnnn. The best middle eastern food.

  • Is it vegan friendly?

  • When I butcher a sheep the only offal I usually eat is the heart and liver. However, if being offered for free I would eat the burger.

  • can't be any worse than the non-beef burgers or what's in a sausage/hotdog.

  • I'll take the eye as a side

  • Thanks for making me feel sick

  • have to make sure it is cooked properly
    do not want cjd
    or any other brain pathogen
    may be just not worth it

    • The temperature at which we cook food isn’t hot enough to degrade prions. If you want to keep yourself awake tonight have a read up on cwd and other prions, specifically check out how long they can last in nature without a “host”.

  • Always Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease for afters. (And yeah I know it's associated with beef, but I'd prefer not to be the first case originating from lamb products.)

    "Brain meat contains omega 3 fatty acids and nutrients. The latter include phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine, which are good for the nervous system.
    The antioxidants obtained by eating brain meat are also helpful in protecting the human brain and spinal cord from damage."

    • Tell that to vegans.

        I only posted it as others were posting comments about potential dangers of eating brains.
        Not everything is 100% good; not everything is 100% bad.

    • Brain meat contains omega 3 fatty acids and nutrients

      Don't waste it then. Take brains from the dead as they won't need it in the ground.

      Talking about omega 3, you can also get it from Flaxseed.

      Best part about marketing is they don't tell you it is possible to get it from the alternative. It isn't like you go to Kmart and the price on the shelf will tell you the price at Big W.

    They already voted no?

  • Used to be a pretty common food in Australia.
    When my partner worked in aged care, crumbed brains was on the menu fortnightly, and was looked forward too.
    We don’t really eat offal, but she said they looked quite tasty, like big nuggets.
    My grandparents ate a bunch of offal cuts, like liver, tongue, tripe etc. but I think as Australia has become more affluent, these are seen as poor cuts.

    And many international cuisines make use of the whole animal, so I would think there will be a resurgence in these cuts over time. When the generation who rejected offal is old, the new generation will see them as silly for ignoring tasty foods.

    • Or rising world population and climate change would put food production under stress. Which means creative ways of getting proteins.

      One of the ideas put to use is restaurant left overs given to cock roach colony and they harvest the roaches to feed the chickens to product eggs. The other extreme example is obviously from movies / TV series like Snow piercer where they use bugs to create protein bars to feed the masses.

      If you look at likes of Quorn nuggets you can see what is possible in the world of dressing up protein to mimic what people are used to.

    • Yes, crumbed brains and tripe in a white sauce back in the day. I can't remember how Mum used to serve up beef tongue but it wasn't bad either. I don't know if she was an unusually adventurous cook for the time or just poor. Probably both.

  • Would you eat the Grill'd Lamb Brain Burger?

    Next someone will post a poll: Would you eat the cow's pen*s burger?


    Ah, that explains Hannibal being shown every second day the past few weeks.

  • A lot more yes votes here than votes for the deal.

  • I wonder how many respondents saying no…have actually tried them, or any brains prepared in any way?


  • Yes. #allmeatmatters

  • No. Whenever I think of eating brain I picture that scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, when all the monkey heads are served up on the table in standing bowls with the skulls removed and the cooked brains exposed.

    A small fact about this movie is that it is actually set as a prequel to the first movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark.

  • Offal is good!!!!

    It's rich but from time to time will not hurt.

  • no association ticked but repeated threads about a company promotion involving brains….. should be linked to https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/608691

    clearly the small size of the brains under discussion is relevant.

    'Kirkup has been criticised for an alleged conflict of interest regarding his relationship with Jenna Clarke, the assistant editor of the state's only locally edited daily newspaper, The West Australian, owned by Seven West Media'

    Seven west media of course received media monies from the liberals from the facebook staged event and additionally

    'At $47 million, Seven West Media will finish in the top 100 national recipients of JobKeeper — not that we’ll ever be officially told that by the federal government.

    Given that it went into COVID-19 with annual revenues exceeding $1 billion, it needed to prove a 50% monthly revenue drop to qualify. How on earth it qualified is yet to be explained.

    It really is time for the auditor-general to take a deep dive on this scheme, along with a serious parliamentary inquiry where CEOs, CFOs and public company chairs explain how they gained access to such huge amounts of public money.'

    plenty of lambs brains on display…

  • Yes.
    With fava beans and a nice chianti
