Rinones Espanol ( Spanish Style Kidneys)

“Popular dish served in resturaunts and Tapas bars here in Spain. Very easy to prepare and cook. Serve over boiled rice with a crusty bread to soak up any juices.NB. Here we use pigs kidneys as they are larger and have a better flavour, but recipezaar does not recognise this as a food item.”
