What is the most disgusting thing you have done for Paleo?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created February 27, 2012 at 8:25 PM

I do eat a lot of things the people in my life think is gross.... liver, sardines, smoked oysters, bone marrow. I???m even a little cocky about it in my head and think of them as inferior.

Also???not using soap and shampoo, deodorant etc. could be considered gross but those of us who do this know we smell/look better now.

I know some of us hunt???.travel to foreign places and try all sorts of things. I heard a podcast awhile back about a former vegan who now eats raw turkey testicles.

However, I was completely humbled this weekend. I???ve been making a lot of bone stock the last 6 months and really enjoying it. I wanted to try my hand at fish broth. I found a large international market pretty close to me and headed over. Nothing was in English except the fish counter???which is probably because a lot of people go there to buy sushi grade fish from all different cultures.

I got my fish and fish heads and then I thought, ???chicken feet! I wonder if they have them here.??? They sure did. I was really taken aback by the look of them. I bought a couple pounds. Their feet look just like my parakeets but fatter and grosser. The toenails freak me out. I even saw a video on the internet where they cut off the toenails and then peel the feet first. Ewwww. I did NOT do that.

The stock came out BEAUTIFUL and I put the rest of the gnarly things in the freezer for future.

Anyway???I also bought a natural, frozen duck. I have not cooked one of those either but I???m pretty sure they took the little feet off.

I tried grinding raw liver in one of those old metal meat grinders to add to ground beef...instead I ended up with nearly liquified massicated liver sludge and blood dripping down the side of my counter. Two years ago that probably would've traumatized me, but I've gotten quite hardy dealing w/ animal parts.

Aren't you supposed to grind/puree liver it after it is cooked? That is how I make pate anyway... cook the livers then they mash up nicely.

I made grass-fed beef heart earlier this month for the first time. I did it typical beef-stew style, and it was just terrific. There's nothing to fear with the heart--it's not weird tasting. Just really beefy with only the slightest hint of "offal" flavor. It never got as tender as stew meat, it remained somewhat toothsome but easily chewable and definitely not stringy or gristly. Good stuff!

Funny enough, heart and tongue are both simply muscle, so they taste pretty much like most cuts of beef that we're used to. I started with tongue, then heart (which I like better, and it makes a wonderful stew), then worked my way up to liver. ;)

I wasn't Paleo at the time but I ate chicken's foot soup at a pretty authentic Chinese place in San Diego. It was nasty to suck the meat off those feet but I was pretty drunk at the time so it wasn't too bad. ;-) I'm not sure I would seek it out again and I am pretty sure my wife would not allow me to cook them in the house.

I've done chicken feet. The farm I was getting chickens from for a while butchered them "Buddhist style" (no idea where that term comes from) which meant head and feet on. I'd have to WHACK WHACK WHACK off the neck and 2 feet with a cleaver. I was so used to getting the neck and liver in a little baggie inside the body cavity.

I didn't do it "in the name of paleo" or whatever, but a cat mauled a pigeon and it was running around with a half missing wing so I put it out of it's misery and ate it. It was pretty damn good, but I over cooked it. I can see why the French eat pigeon, nice flavor.

Ok -here is my liver horror story. I was really desperate to get some liver in me.

All cooking methods FAILED -yes commenters, all you can possibly suggest (thanks anyway)...

So next I tried freezing little tiny cubes of it, then swallowing like pills. Even one with a giant gulp of water it would get stuck in my throat, and my mouth still tasted like liver for hours. (Not to mention that my throat hurt).

Next, I decided that I would make myself eat a tablespoon size only, but I decided the chewing would be too awful so (Warning: brilliant idea..haha) I decided to blend it up and allocate it into tablespoon size portion to freeze and eat one at a time. The result: Here it is, in all its TMI glory, a giant blender full of what looked exactly like extra clotty period blood. Seriously full of mystery clots, veiny things, pure unadulterated nastiness.

The dog got the liver. All 6 grassfed pounds of it.

I haven't done it yet, but I have a very strong desire to grow my own bug farm (crickets probably), feeding them organic food and then eating them of course.

Other than that, not much because I grew up on tripe, chicken feet at dim sum!!!, jellyfish, sea urchin, fish (and sucked the glob in the eyeballs), blood gelatin, sea slugs, various organ meats, and soup left out on the counter overnight throughout childhood.

I haven't tried raw meat...hm, I'm tempted.

I don't think it is gross but my friends give me grief for enjoying raw chicken. My husband gives me more grief because I love raw chicken with a ripe, raw milk blue cheese. Mmmm, mouth water.

Raw fish: awesome. Raw beef: fantastic. Raw chicken-TEXTURE GROSS AHHH. That is my experience.

I don't do raw chicken but raw beef ain't bad, it's just a little too chewy if you get greedy on the bite sizes.

I love raw beef, eggs, fish, oysters... I thought the texture of raw chicken would be bad too but I find a boneless, skinless, chicken thigh a perfect serving size and delicious. It quickly became my favorite raw meat to eat.

I was a somewhat feral child and grew up in barns so my Ick factor is fairly relaxed.

I'm contemplating a foray into trying insects at some future point but I think they should be prepared and cooked by someone who knows what they're doing.

Actually, I can think of one thing that grosses me out--raw egg white and it's all about the texture. If you whip it, fine; cook it, great. But in it's raw state I get queasy just dealing with a spill. I don't like that texture at all!

I was telling my mom about eating bugs after trying some deep fried crickets, and she said "Why is that weird? You practically got half your protein from bugs when you were a kid!" so that's good to know, haha.

Pretty standard fare around here, but I just bought my first cow tongue and heart last week. I'm about to put the tongue in the slow cooker before bed tonight and have it for tomorrow's breakfast. Looking forward to it.

After 3 months I've actually come to enjoy beef liver (cooked mid rare like a steak), so the tongue/heart seemed like a good next step. I may steer clear of the kidneys for a bit longer, but I'd love to try some brain...

I've also been eating the heck out of chicken hearts/gizzards. I just throw a handful in with my bi-weekly stewed buffalo chicken wings. As long as they are covered in buttery buffalo sauce, my kids eat them (and like them), too!

UPDATE: The tongue came out great. Almost indistinguishable from roast beef in taste and appearance (once cut up). After about 8 hours in the slow cooker it was tender enough to push a wooden spoon through, so I set it out on a plate to cool for about 15 minutes and then peeled it, trimmed it up a bit more, and sliced it into strips. I diced up some pan-fried liver and egg to go with it on a bed of white rice with some Kerrygold and sea salt. It was very delicious.

On low-temp I do. I've used my cooker enough (while awake the whole time) to be pretty familiar with how it runs for 8-10 hours straight, so I'm comfy with it. I usually do bone broths overnight like this.

I made grass-fed beef heart earlier this month for the first time. I did it typical beef-stew style, and it was just terrific. There's nothing to fear with the heart--it's not weird tasting. Just really beefy with only the slightest hint of "offal" flavor. It never got as tender as stew meat, it remained somewhat toothsome but easily chewable and definitely not stringy or gristly. Good stuff!

Do you often slow cooker overnight? That's a really good idea - I'm always a bit scared of leaving things on overnight - but oddly I'm fine with leaving it on when I go out to work all day?!

Funny enough, heart and tongue are both simply muscle, so they taste pretty much like most cuts of beef that we're used to. I started with tongue, then heart (which I like better, and it makes a wonderful stew), then worked my way up to liver. ;)

I made bone broth from a bone the dog had chewed. It was still fresh - the dog is my daughter's and he went home and left it! Mind you, he's my 'grandson' (the only one I'm gonna get, I think) and it's okay to share between relatives!

Im currently in China.

At the local market I pay about the same price for chicken feet than I do for the amount of chicken breast!

Chicken feet are a delicacy over here!!

Ate refrigerated, cold raw egg. I am planning on chowing on a huge pack of salmon from the farmer's market as I've often done, and trying raw beef from the farmer's market as well this Wednesday. I don't consider those as disgusting as the cold egg. I tried raw eggs before that were perfectly fine. I blame the refrigeration for the awful taste.

I tried making liverwurst at home with my kitchen aid mixer w/meat grinder attachment. Pushing the liver through the grinder was...well, pretty much exactly like you'd imagine. Kind of like what the Senneth said about putting it in a blender....only it was getting extruded out of many tiny holes and dripping clottily into a bowl full of other ground meat.

The liverwurst turned out terrible, and since I don't have dogs, the rats in the alley probably ate it out of my garbage bin.

Conclusion? Good-quality commercial liverwurst is AWESOME!

I tried grinding raw liver in one of those old metal meat grinders to add to ground beef...instead I ended up with nearly liquified massicated liver sludge and blood dripping down the side of my counter. Two years ago that probably would've traumatized me, but I've gotten quite hardy dealing w/ animal parts.

Aren't you supposed to grind/puree liver it after it is cooked? That is how I make pate anyway... cook the livers then they mash up nicely.

I see pig uterus in the Korean market in my town. I try to be open minded, but those little reproductive organs for sale just gross me out.

I made the mistake of trying to eat cooked goat liver (picked up in Berkeley) with minimal spicing - I know officially not gross, but my Indian blood was confused by the lack of cumin and turmeric and I overcooked it

so now I only gently cook chicken livers - I kinda poach them in bacon fat, and i eat the goat liver like sashimi

boring, but true :)
