Beef & Liver Blend

 

Beef & Liver Blend

Many of you may have wondered what this blend is all about? Maybe you have questioned why we would even offer such a thing? If you would have asked me about this 10 years ago, I would have said you were crazy to even think of such a thing. But fast forward a little bit and here we are now combining our amazing grass fed beef round with grass fed beef liver. I worked with our butcher to develop this unique blend with just the right ratio of each.

We created this unique blend to allow more of our customers the option of adding organ meats into their diet without just eating straight up liver. This blend is very kid friendly and since I have 3 little ones of my own, it is definitely kid tested and mother approved! You can’t tell the difference between it and our standard ground round when you make it into any dish with a sauce or seasoning. Some of our favorite ways to eat it are: Spaghetti with Veggie Noodles, Tacos, Chili, or Sloppy Joes.  You do not even realize we are eating organ meat!
My grandma loves liver and onions and I have always wondered why it seemed to be such a staple in her home while she was growing up. I think her mom had some inside health knowledge that the doctors hadn’t figured out yet. Gram for gram liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods. It is a high quality protein and an easy way to absorb iron. Liver also contains all of the B vitamins including B12 and folic acid in significant amounts; many trace minerals as well as the powerful antioxidant CoQ10. Many want to avoid liver because its main job is flushing toxins out of the body but what people do not realize is the liver does not store those toxins there, it marks them to be eliminated via the intestines or kidneys. We take great care in feeding our cows a great no toxin diet however we cannot control the air they breathe. What we do know is our cows have the healthiest livers available and in turn you are able to reap all the benefits of a healthy liver too.
