  • Palatable organ meat meatballs!

    My nutritionist told me to eat more red meat and organ meat. Since I've got the biggest appetite in the morning I decided to use this recipe to make meatballs...freeze them...then pluck them out and eat them for breakfast along with eggs and veggies. Amazing!

      So I used that recipe as inspiration for some stuffed portabella mushrooms tonight.

      I minced half of a medium yellow onion and sautéed it in olive oil with about a tablespoon minced garlice over low heat until soft. Then combined it with the following...

      1 lb grass fed ground beef 85% fat.
      3 large chicken livers minced very fine
      3 slices pancetta minced very fine
      About 1/4 cup currants (had them sitting in San pellegrino for about 20 minutes to plump them up a bit)
      Teaspoon salt
      Fresh ground pepper
      1 egg

      Mixed up like you were making a meatloaf. Take out the stems and gills from 4 large portobello mushrooms and brush all over with olive oil. Place in baking dish that has been greased with olive oil. Fill each mushroom with meat mixture and sprinkle with thyme. Bake in 350 oven for about 35 minutes, then top each mushroom with a slice of gruyere. Bake 5 more minutes.

      Husband gave it 2 thumbs up...

        Crazy. We just make 'meatloaf', then cook them in muffin trays.

        1 lb Mince
        1/4 lb Minced organ meat
        1 onion, minced
        1 carrot, minced
        1 T Garlic
        1 t Basil
        1 t oragano
        2 eggs
        2 T tomato sauce
        salt and pepper to taste

        Mix together, then spoon into muffin trays. Cook in batches (takes longer than a normal muffin).
        Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.
