I buy sides of organic grass fed beef for my family of 6. Would love a simple paleo roast recipe. I will try one of the organ recipes with a chuck roast and see how it goes.

I’m surprised you haven’t included tongue in your list! It’s one of my favorites, my husband being Korean and all. We bbq it and saute it in sesame oil and it is delish!

[…] Organ Meats: Liver and giblets provide 5.2 and 9.9 mg of iron.  I can see it now, you are shaking your head and saying “YUCK”.  Not so fast!  Get creative.  In a recent chat with the local butcher, he suggested beef hearts ground up and added to ground beef. You will never know it is there by taste and it is packed with iron. He stated that in years past, he would have to add beef hearts to ground beef for schools to beef up the iron intake.  Pun intended.  Cook the organ meat, puree it and add to meatballs, meatloaf, meat sauce or tacos! Consider organ meat recipes. […]

Does eating sausage count as eating organ meat? I found some great grass-fed beef sausages from a local farm…I suppose I could ask them if lots of organs go into the sausage… 😀

i was wondering how to cook with chicken hearts and gizzards in a way that my family would eat them and not get freaked out?
Thank you,

This whole thing distresses me so much. I want to be able to stomach organ meat, for all the many excellent reasons you state, and I have not been able to get over the taste and smell. Also, my body has difficulty processing iron. I just don’t know how to get over these hurdles.
