The recipe title SAYS liver, but doesn’t taste much like liver. In other words, you get the powerhouse food liver without the livery taste!
Read through the entire recipe before beginning, although this one is TOUGH to mess up given the quality and tastiness of the ingredients.
Makes: 6 patties
Serves: 1-6 (depending on how many portabella mushrooms you have)
- 1 lb. grass-fed liver
- 4 slices bacon (I used Applegate), chopped
- 4 oz. Chevre goat cheese
- 2 Large Portabella mushrooms
- 2 Tbsp. rosemary
- 1 tsp. parsley
- 2 Tbsp. organic ketchup
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 1 tsp. paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
- ¼ cup green onions, diced
- 2 Roma tomatoes, sliced (optional)
- 2 carrots, shredded (optional)
Steps to crEATe:
Preparing the Portabella Mushrooms:
1.) Pre-heat oven to 400° on broil setting.
2.) Cut off the any extra stem coming from bottom of mushroom that would interfere with the size of your grass-fed beef patty. It’s usually no longer than ½ inch and I always cut it even with the mushroom.
3.) Prepare a baking/cooking sheet with coconut oil. Place bottom side up on cooking tray. Sprinkle balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.
4.) Broil for 10-12 minutes.
Preparing the Rosemary Bacon, Goat Cheese Liver Patties
1.) Make sure oven is on, if you are cooking the mushrooms it will be.
2.) In a food processor, grind liver into mush. Add chopped bacon*, goat cheese, green onions and seasonings (rosemary, parsley, paprika, oregano, ketchup, salt and pepper). Process again, until ingredients are combined.
3.) Grease a 6 bun/patty tray with coconut oil and dived liver batter evenly in compartments.
4.) Broil for 5-8 minutes (I like my liver fairly raw, so I was closer to the 5 minute mark.
Preparing The Burgers
1.) Using one broiled mushroom, place a broiled liver patty on top, garnish with tomatoes, carrots, green onions, more goat cheese, etc…
2.) Place in oven for an extra 3-5 minutes. They won’t need long since everything is essentially cooked.
3.) Serve with French fries, or sautéed potatoes in grass-fed butter (pictured)
*Note: If you don’t like your bacon raw, either remove it from the recipe OR pre-cook bacon in a sauce pan and THEN add it into the processed liver.
