Ingredients

  • 2-4 oz grassfed beef liver
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 tsp real salt
  • Stock pot full of meat stock

Instructions

  • Rinse the liver and place it in a bowl of cool water, along with a tsp of fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. This helps to lessen the bitter taste. Let sit for half an hour.
  • Chop the onion intro fairly small pieces.
  • Mix the ground beef, salt and onion together in a large bowl.
  • Bring the stock to a boil.
  • Remove liver from lemon juice soak and rinse.
  • Place liver in high powered blender or food processor and blend until it is pureed.
  • Add the liver to the ground beef mixture and mix well.
  • Turn the meat stock down to a simmer.
  • Begin forming balls with the meat about 1-2 Tbsp in size, then gently drop in the simmering meat stock.
  • Continuing forming and dropping meatballs into the stock until you’ve used all of the meat.
  • Cook for approximately 20-30 minutes; adding veggies, if desired, to serve as a soup or stew, or ladle out meatballs to serve alongside vegetables.
