Announcement: New Recipe Theme for the Cookbook Contest

By Mark Sisson

Enter your best Primal Blueprint recipes for your chance to win prizes and be featured in the Reader-Created Cookbook

The new theme: Offal Recipes

In the last couple months MDA readers have sent in some delicious Primal Chicken recipes (the previous theme):

Aromatic Whole Grilled Chicken
Chicken Curry Clafouti
Sesame Chicken and “Rice” with Fiery Ginger and Chile Sauce
Crispy Nut and Herb Fried Chicken with Creamy Avocado
Spicy Chicken and Bacon Poppers
Butter Chicken in a Silky Sauce

All of these recipes will be featured in the Reader-Created Primal Blueprint Cookbook and the entrants have a chance to win an über cool Primal prize package. (Note: The Reader-Created Cookbook is not to be confused with The Primal Blueprint Cookbook.)

But now I’m asking for your favorite Primal Offal recipes. Liver and Onions? Sweetbreads and Bacon? Scrambled Eggs and Calf Brains? However you like your organs I want to know and so do other Primal Blueprinters. If you’d like to participate in this contest email me your best Primal creations where offal is the featured ingredient. Click here for all the contest details.

I can not wait for organ recipes. I purchased half a grass fed cow and have lots of organs including liver, heart and tongue. Not sure what else…

I will be trying the liver recipe from the primal blueprint cookbook but would not mind a heart recipe… anyone?

sorry that i have no recipe to give but i just wanted to say that im really excited about this. I think most of us would benefit from more organ/offal-consumption. Cow heart, just cooking it low and slow like any old stew meat, is the only one that i can consistently have luck with.
