This beef liver pate recipe is a go to in my house for hosting. This recipe makes for a delicious appetizer all year round. We love to dip it with carrots and celery. This recipe is naturally autoimmune protocol friendly as well as keto, paleo & Whole30 friendly.
Why I Love Liver:
- I was first introduced to liver when I did Sarah Ballentyne’s Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP.) It is one of the most nutrient dense foods out there. Nutrient density of foods is important for those doing the AIP diet.
- I was worried about the taste when I first started to read about all of it’s benefits, but I soon found that when liver is seasoned properly, it is quite delicious!
Ingredients In This Beef Liver Pate Recipe:
- Beef liver- You can use calf or beef liver. Calf liver is just a baby cow vs. beef liver is from a grown cow. If you cannot find this at the grocery store ask the butcher, sometimes they have it behind the counter in the butchers area.
- EVOO-I like using olive oil to mix dips once they are cooked. It compliments the liver nicely.
- Avocado oil-Avocado oil is used to sear the liver. If you are not doing AIP, you can use ghee.
- Sea salt-sea salt brings out the natural flavor of the liver.
- Oregano-adds some extra flavor.
- Fresh parsley-adds some texture to the dish.
- Pomegranate seeds-adds a nice sweet crunch.
How To Make This Beef Liver Pate Recipe:
- This recipe is SIMPLE!
- First, pan sear the garlic and liver in a pan with the avocado oil. Sear the liver for 2 minutes on each side for 4 minutes total.
- Next, add the liver, garlic, and remaining ingredients in the food processor and press pure until smooth. I use this food processor here.
What To Eat This With:
- You can totally eat it alone or you can use it as a dip.
- For the dips we like to use fresh vegetables like carrots and celery or my favorite paleo crackers. You can find them HERE.
