I am bravely branching out--I've never prepared or eaten this before, but I know it is very healthy, so I'm willing to give it a shot. I know sourcing organ meats is important, so I'm going to place an order with US Wellness Meats. If I'm spending the money for good quality, I want to use a tried, tested, delicious recipe, so I don't waste my money on a recipe fail...any suggestions?

Sorry I don't have an answer for you, but I wanted to say that I am also looking for recipes. The only organ meat I have ever eaten was in liverwurst, and that was with some mustard and between two fluffy slices of potato bread.

Thanks for initiating this thread!

There is a thread called 'Liverwurst' and in it there is an amazing recipe for chopped liver (basically pate) from a member who is a chef. I made it and it is spectacular. I eat it on celery sticks. You can also put liver in burgers and meatballs.

I am cooking my bison heart today so I'll let you know how it goes.

Organ meat is awesome and I happy that more people are branching and trying it.

I did find these on US Wellness Meats' site:

Liver & Apples--Berlin Style

Beef Heart with Mushroom Stuffing (Whole30 friendly)

Beef Kidney with Onions and Squash

Two of the recipes include butter, so I'll save those for post-Whole30 and will post the results after I try them.

You can substitute ghee for butter. It's fairly easy to find in the higher end grocery stores or easy to make your own.

I have used organ meats in meatloaf (Fine Cooking has a recipe to die for meat loaf wrapped in bacon.... oi ecstasy! So yummy!) and I also use heart in chili mixed with chuck and ground beef, and I also use it in stew. I find anything that has to cook for a long time works well with heart and other tougher organ meats.

Spleen...wow...I have never even seen that available to purchase. I'm not sure of the texture...maybe cook it like liver? Either way keep us in the spleen loop, I always want to know about organ meat.

Chris Constantino is a chef who believes fiercly in using the entire animal. Google him and he'll probably have some recipes.

Tonight at Whole Foods I bought something I have never heard of or seen before (and somehow I think they mispriced it bc it was only $3.99/lb.) It was Rumaki: a chicken liver and a water chestnut wrapped in bacon. Simple and delicious!

Also, pate is pretty easy to make. Sautee the livers in coconut oil. Put that and chicken stock in a food processor and eat with veggies (or a spoon.) On my birthday, I put a candle in it and ate it with a spoon - HA.
