After making BARF for the cats we usually get some organ meat left over, which is really good for us of course since we get to eat it as well! This time was extra nice since we got venison heart and chicken liver. Organic chicken liver is actually very easy to find in the supermarkets nowadays (here in Sweden). So no excuse to not eat your healthy organ meats!
Or one problem though… Organic raised chickens are fed with fishmeal that contains loads of serious toxins. I don’t know how much of that ending up in the liver or meat? Only the eggs are tested. However, the hen eat far more of the fishmeal compared to a chicken. Worth to think about though, we don’t eat fish due to the toxins so maybe we should skip chicken as well. Sadly! We buy our eggs from a local small scale farmer that we don’t think uses fishmeal as feed.
The leftover heart and liver was blended together into a stew anyways, served in sweet potato and on a bed of greens. At the top is a fermented mini cucumber.
Organ meat stew
- Liver meat
- Heart meat
- Cumin seeds
1. Chop the mushrooms, onion and chili and brown in a large frying pan with coconut oil. Grind the cumin seeds and add all the seasoning in the frying pan.
2. Chop the meat and add in the frying pan. Let it cook together at a low temperature for about 15 minutes.
3. Serve with your choice of veggies.
Actually the chili and purple coloured salad is picked from our own pots! To compensate slightly for the chicken maybe. But with added soot from the road outside our balcony instead. We enjoyed a nice glass of french red wine to it as well.
