  • From My Grass Fed Farmer "PET FOOD"......

    Pet Food, All-Beef, 1 lb each
    1 lb package, ground liver, heart, tongue and kidney @ 3 bucks 1lb.

    Anyone have any ideas for making this palatable ? Didn't know if this should be in recipes or nutrition, because the ingredients in this look offally nutritious

    I would try a pate of some sort. I'll bet someone here has a great primal pate recipe. The mixture sounds, as you mentioned, wonderfully nutritious. I don't think I would want to give that to the dog! I'd want that for myself!

      Chili. Stew/soup. Shepard's pie.

        I've read that mixing small amounts of liver/heart with ground beef masks the taste somewhat and ups the nutrition level.

          I buy lamb "pet food" that's the meat, heart, and liver constantly. I mostly make chili or curry out of it. Turns out awesome every time. You'll find that the consistency of it makes it almost impossible to make burgers out of (unless it's really low on liver content) but it'll go great in stews and soups or even the occasional hearty omelet.

            So there is no muscle meat in there at all? I would say that is going to taste pretty damned strong. Unless you are one of the very lucky folks who like offal a lot, you may need to cut it with a fair amount of ground beef.

              Nah, I bought a package of 40lbs of US Wellness Meat's petburgers, and despite only being 5% ground beef heart and 5% ground beef liver, and the rest regular ground beef, I can fully taste both the heart and liver.

                Well, that's good to know! It's something I've been thinking about. Currently I can only tolerate chicken livers, made into pate.

                    I will eat almost anything EXCEPT liver. Here's how get it to lose its bad taste. First marinate it overnight in a very spicy cajun style mix of spices, cayenne, paprika, salt, black pepper etc. Then cook it up on a skillet. Cook up a baked potato and slice an onion up and grill it. I leave the liver in the fridge for a day to let the spice seep in, then freeze it in 1 oz chunks.

                    Ok, when I'm ready to have some liver, I take out a 1oZ chunk, reheat it, then slice off an equal size of potato and an equal portion of onions, which I keep ready to eat in the fridge. Once it's on the plate, go back to your spice mix and sprinkle it directly on the liver, as much as you can stand. The liver and spices offset each other, making the liver tasteless. The liver kills the spices, so it's not too spicy either

                    I eat an ounce a day like this as an apetizer or just after my main course.

                    Beef heart I either grind up and mix with ground beef, or make a broth. The broth has a strong flavor, so I mix it with my regular beef broth. "hearty" taste disappears, actually improves the flavor of the beef broth.

                    Still looking to get some kidney and tongue.

                      Oh gosh you guys have it all backwards. The liver and heart need to mask the taste of the muscle meat. There's nothing I like better than a big old slab of liver. Nom nom! So good. I never thought of buying the pet food for myself. Hmmmm...

                        Ok, now that I've thought about it a bit, I would try the "pet food" mix myself. If I found it to be strong tasting I'd just cook it up hot and spicy for taco-type salads or curries.

                          Liver only tastes bad if you overcook it. Treat it right and it is delicious

                            Dang, I finally cooked some up this morning. Just in butter as a burger(no spices or anything....didn't stick together as much, but once I started cooking it stayed together). Have to say.....Delicious, the only part I could taste was the liver. Hell I like this better than beef liver by itself. Lets now hope my farmer won't up the prices, because I am buying a shitload of it.
