    Paleobird's Liver Pate?

    Hi Paleobird...

    Can you post your liver pate recipe here? Didn't know if you'd check the recipe board. Do you just eat it with a spoon? Thank you!

    Haha... just looked on the recipe board and see there is a thread with your chicken liver pate, but I am interested in the on with just cream and butter and how you make it.

    Hi there. Good way to get my attention. I don't always check the recipe section

    My pate recipe has evolved and every time I change it it gets a little simpler and a lot better.

    2 lbs sliced liver (any critter, lamb and calf are my favorites)
    cook in a stick of butter
    season while cooking any way you like (I like Italian herbs, garlic and s&p)
    put whole mess in blender (or use a hand blender)
    add 1 cup heavy cream (raw is best if available)
    blend the living daylights out of it until smooth
    pour into tupper cups and fridge.

    If you want to freeze some for later, drizzle some coconut oil or other fat on top to seal out the air first.

    Other things can be added in the mixer for flavoring such as onions, tomatoes, capers, olives, bell peppers, sherry. But I kind of just like the creamy flavor all by itself.

    Can be served in celery sticks or as the filling between two slices of cucumber. Or, the ultimate pate delivery device, a spoon.
    Pate is a great way to get those who are a little reluctant about liver to come over to the offal side.

    Enjoy!

    Thank you, Paleobird! Can't wait to make this! I just want the creamy flavor all by itself, too!

    Great, this sounds far easier than the recipe with the eggs. I have stashed away a few lbs of chicken livers wanting to make a pate myself. I think the time hath come. I guess I will need to buy some cream.

    Is a stick of butter 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup of butter? The butter I buy comes in 1 lb 'bricks', no sticks like in the States.

    A stick is half a cup.

    I did the one on the recipe board but I just eyeballed all the ingredients. I think pate is amenable to just winging it.

    I cooked chicken livers and mushrooms in a generous amount of leftover fats that I saved from making bone broth. A mixture of bone marrow, beef tongue and pork fat. Added two eggs and cooked everything to just a little under completely done. Put it in the blender with 2T butter. I only wish I had remembered to add salt. Otherwise it's delish! I have been putting it on lettuce with a slice of tomato.

    My goal one day is to use pure bone marrow for the fat.

    Great, thanks! I will try without eggs first.

    Marrow is one fat I actually like. I would not mind subbing some of the butter for 'meatier' fat. I have a lot of melted fat from chickens, bacon and the like, all mixed in. Next time we are getting a pig, I am getting the 'bird feeding' fat to melt my own lard. Would be good to try to sub it for cream. Funnily, I love fermented dairy, but always found cream unpleasant.

    I was using Kerrygold butter. They have one that is garlic and herb infused that is really nice. Those stick are 100grams since they come from the UK.

    I wish the US would just give up and go metric. It would make everything easier.

    Marrow fat would make awesome pate'. I just don't have enough self control to save it for that purpose. <sluuuurp>

    Oh good Lord, that sounds good! I was a waiter in a French restaurant in Beverly Hills years ago and used to have to sneak the pate. I think I could live on that stuff. Well, that and some good red wine.
