Here’s a tasty, budget friendly stew made from 100% grass-fed and pasture raised organ meats. Consuming organ meat (aka offal) is part of a nose-to-tail philosophy that offers a great source of nutrition. Organ meats are known for their dense nutritional value and some consider them to be in the highest class of super foods.
Make sure you are sourcing your organ meats from all-natural, sustainable farms if possible. US Wellness farms are dedicated to raising animals in a natural environment with free range access to green pastures. All of our beef is raised on 100% grass diet as nature intended for cattle. These animals receive no antibiotics, no gmo feeds, no grains, and we do not use pesticides or herbicides on our farms. This is how we provide the cleanest, whole food proteins available.
