Beef Liver Pate
August 17, 2014

Most of the time we associate chicken liver with pate, however in Western Australia it is very hard to find organic chicken livers, so I started experimenting making pate from lamb and beef.   I added extra herbs and spices and …  it’s really good.

Liver is such an important food,  B12, Vitamin A and iron are abundant.   Pate goes well on GF crackers, with vegetable sticks, on GF bread or just on its own.

Preparation:  10 – 15 minutes

Beef Liver Pate
Ingredients:

  • 2 garlic cloves crushed or chopped finely
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 40g butter (or coconut or olive oil if dairy free)
  • approx. 500 g beef liver
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp tomato puree
  • 1/3 cup red wine (optional)
  • 2 large Tbsp organic cream (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh (or dried) lemon thyme
  • 1 large handful of parsley chopped
  • Generous pinch himalayan or celtic sea salt
  • Extra butter

Directions:

  1. Heat the butter or oil in a frying pan and sauté the livers with the onion and garlic over a medium heat.
  2. Cook, stirring, until the livers are lightly browned with no pink remaining, about 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a food processor, add the remaining ingredients and season well with freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Process until smooth and fluffy.
  5. Transfer back to the pan and cook for a further 5 minutes on a medium heat.
  6. Scrape the pâté into 2 or 3 large ramekins.
  7. The pâté can be covered with a thin layer of melted butter  and refrigerated for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 2 or 3 months.

Notes

  • I often use almost 1 kg of liver and double the recipe above and then pop the pate in the freezer for another time.
  • Mushrooms make another great addition to pate.  Try roughly chopping and adding about 1 cup at the sautéing stage.
