This simple stir-fried dish of kidneys makes it easy to understand why Chinese gourmets treasure innards so highly. According to Mrs. Chiang, the only trick involved in preparing kidneys is to clean and rinse them very, very thoroughly; this will eliminate the unpleasant taste and odor that otherwise accompanies these delicious organs. This recipe combines them with crisp snow peas (xuedou)in a straightforward, relatively mild dish.
