Bought some organic, patured beef liver the other day and added it to beef patties (about 1/5th liver, the rest normal mince). ??I could barely stomach the taste. The remainder of the liver -- quite a lot -- now lives in my freezer and I'm not... (more)
Yes, should I eat the beef bone marrow after having cooked it with its bones for 48 hours to make broth? We have tried to do so, thinking it is good nutrion-wise, but we can´t seem to handle the taste of it. It does not taste so bad we... (more)
Hm, OK, thanks, I will try that. Although I am still sceptical since we have tried to fry it with onions and so on without it helping out much with the taste..' But, after cooking it for 48 hours, is there really any good stuff left in the marrow? (more)
I rather enjoy liver, but where I live it's still almost $5 a pound for the non-organic, non-pasteured beef liver, and $3 for chicken. I'd have to pay $12-$15 per pound for the good stuff.We only have a budget of about $200 per month for groceries... (more)
Score! New yoga studio in Larkspur (20 minutes north of San Francisco) is next to a grass-fed/finished butcher called Belcampo Meat Co. which had lots of great looking meat and offal!! I bought a goat liver and would love suggestions on how... (more)
@desmond Thanks for the ideas and the comment about heart was great b/c I also bought lamb, goat and beef heart, and a leg of goat. I was planning on doing the goat leg in the slow cooker tomorrow.
Hi I am curious about trying other organ meats besides liver or kidney. These 2 I have tried and, frankly, don't sit well with me. I'm curious for example does stomach taste like liver? What about intestines or tongue? These would be... (more)
They don't sit well with you mentally or physically? Because if it is a problem with taste, you can chop the liver/kidney up and mix into a meatloaf or burger patties. You won't be able to taste it.
Recently, I found a great local grass fed beef farmer, can't believe how easy it was to find! Anyways, I've been looking at the prices and it seems fairly expensive, but the cheapest cuts are offal such as heart, tongue, kidney, and liver. These... (more)
Vitamin/mineral toxicity is a concern, because organ meats are very nutrient dense (not that that is a bad thing, most people don't eat enough organ meant and organ meat was how we got our daily quotas of all our nutrients before the advent of... (more)
Hello! I have just moved to Stockholm this week and i'm looking to find organ meats (liver, kidney, heart...all the good stuff we know and love!) in Stockholm. I'm also a student, so this would be useful to save some money. Does anybody have... (more)
Are there specific benefits to eating muscle meat from land animals (e.g, chicken, beef, pork)? Their fat is a good source of saturated fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins; their bones and cartilage are full of minerals and other healthy... (more)
Hi all, I've been using the excellent website Cron-O-Meter to plan a balanced diet and quickly realised that the only way of hitting RDA's on minerals is to consume a few hundred grams of various nuts and seeds, namely brazils and pumpkin seeds as... (more)
When I started eating liver, I was only eating it in pate form. During that time though, I was still eating bread occasionally and had the pate with it. After a while I started enjoying whole livers instead of pate, and to this day I still eat... (more)
So we all know the benefits of having your weekly (or twice weekly for the fanatics :) )portion of liver. Well here's the thing... Over here in Dubai, but I'm sure many people find themselves in a similar situation, grass-fed, let alone organic... (more)
I've seen on http://nutritiondata.self.com/ that the protein content of both kidney and liver (seems to go for every source) goes up when cooked. Can anyone explain how it can increase from around 20g/100g to 26g/100g just by cooking it? To me it... (more)
I made kidneys and to get rid of that nasty smell and yellow urine color I had to boil them in seven different waters. They taste fine, but it took me a lot of effort to get them that way. Are kidneys worth all that effort? Or can I just... (more)
Tried a Halal market yesterday and was delighted to find all kinds of unusual offal. I have lamb's feet-- I'll add that to bone broth, no problem. I purchased a large package of liver with something attached to it-- it turns out to be lungs,... (more)
So I'm trying to incorporate more offal into my diet but my body doesn't seem to be agreeing with it. This is the third time I've tried cooking with lamb liver to only be left feeling nauseous after eating it. After eating it plain the first time... (more)
Is there anything in conventional eggs or eggs in general that could attribute to dark circles? I had a slight cold about two weeks ago and wasn't feeling too hot. I decided for the hell of it that I was going to give eggs a break. Previously I... (more)
I just opened up my package of grass fed lamb livers I received from my local rancher. I first noticed that they really didn't have a smell...until I started cutting into it. Now I think they smell faintly fruity--like plums. Anyone else share... (more)
I have a pig liver in my freezer from a pig I split with my friend (from a local farm down the road). What's the best way to cook/eat it? I also have some pig skin and some other random organs... Any site recommendations for recipes?
I was cutting up chicken livers today and noticed a kidney looking organ inside the package. Meanwhile I was cooking the chopped livers and didn't notice that there was chopped kidneys already in the pan now. The food smells like piss but I ate it... (more)
We've been buying grassfed beef sides for a few years, but have always gone to a USDA facility. We get the standard organ meats (heart and liver), but have not been able to obtain beef hooves and other cool stuff, like glands. I may be able to... (more)
As any-one who's tried to cook them will know, kidneys smell pretty awful. In deference to the preferences of my fiance, I've tried to reduce the urine smell by soaking them (as lots of recipes recommend) and then discarding the liquid before... (more)
I scored 2 pastured lamb kidneys for $0.88 from the butcher on my way home from work tonight! (I'm addicted to popping in to see what's there... I buy bones at least 3 times a week for stock :) So friends, what do I do with these babies? Please... (more)
When I was little my father used to make lamb kidney for breakfast on the weekends. He'd fry onions and add the chopped kidneys with lots of ground coriander, black pepper, and some cumin. Sometimes he would add mushrooms.
Anyone have any good recipes for beef heart? I know some of it is based on how lean it is but the Fitday info is quite good and it is really tasty. I've fast fried it with yams and butter and I made Fajitas with it. Anyone have any info,... (more)
Where do you get organ meats and which ones do you like? I'm interested in starting to eat them.... I do all of my shopping at organic grocery stores and I don't even know where to start.
I get offal from the Farmer's market (grass fed beef innards), Asian market (duck gizzards, pork hearts), and a Mediterranean store (all kinds of goat/sheep innards, including tripe) close to where I live in the Bay Area.
