    I would like to incorporate organ meats into my diet but somehow struggle to do so.

    I was wondering if anyone has tried to let's say put minced liver into burgers? Would that conceal the strong taste of liver a bit? Any ideas?

    Thanks

    When I was a kid the best thing to conceal the flavor of liver was ketchup- lol.


    Maybe you could try starting out with "lighter" organ meats (when it comes to flavor.) Two of my favorites are heart and tongue. They're not quite as iron-y tasting as liver or kidney. I've also learned that due to texture, I prefer beef kidney over lamb or calf liver. Unfortunately there are only 2 ways I've found to make liver. With onions and bacon, or coated in cornmeal. Both ways it still tastes like liver.

    I *heart* brain. Cooked brain has the texture of scrambled eggs and the taste of ghee. YUM!


    Where do you get organ meats? I haven't found them in the grocery store (I know, I know I should be going to a farm - hopefully soon).

    I just got some buffalo kidneys & want to try making some sort of steak & kidney pie with them. any suggestions?? I'm thinking some sort of red wine sauce (with mushrooms & onions, of course). Instead of crust on top maybe mashed turnips & carrots? Unless someone has a crust idea...

    I tried disguising chicken livers in a stew - unsuccessfully! Yuck!

    I will try kidney when *someone else* has e.g. a steak and kidney pie and I pinch a bit.

    I've not tried brain - the whole BSE thing put paid to that! I'm not even sure what is legal to sell in the UK?

    Has anyone tried "sweetbreads"? I *think* they're the adrenal glands. But I used to think the term referred to (yum yum...) the testicles??


    Having said that, I've always like tongue, albeit from the supermarket, sliced and jellied!


    Peggy - I think Son of Grok and a few others had a cauliflower based pizza dough - might this adapt to a kind of "pastry" crust?

    I've tried the, erm, sweetbreads. Infact as kids, my sister and I would fight over who'd get it. Thanks to all the propoganda and CW, organ meats were slowly eliminated from our diet!


    I once tried chicken livers with brussel sprouts and thought a worse combination couldn't have existed, but it actually tasted quite nice. It was made with lots of Indian spices.
