These Crustless Mini Meat Pies with hidden liver are the perfect way to cook beef liver without flour. They are a nutrient-dense addition to meal prep for breakfast or lunch. It’s a great way to get your liver in without any unusual taste, texture, or appearance.
If you are interested in increasing the nutrient density in your diet, adding liver a few times a week is the way to go. Liver is a nutritional powerhouse. It is, ounce for ounce, the most nutrient-dense food on the planet.
For some, it’s hard to wrap your head around, but overcoming the cultural disconnect is totally worth it.
Personally, I enjoy eating nose to tail for many reasons:
- It is a respectful, utilitarian approach to raising animals for food
- Organ meats, bones, and hoofs are some of the most affordable parts – great for my budget!
- They are highly concentrated sources of nutrition
