Easy Carnivore Beef Liver Pâté Recipe

3 min read

It might be tempting to just settle for eating ribeye all day, every day, but that could see you running into some issues. Muscle meat still lacks in several micronutrients. And don’t let the name fool you, these nutrients are just as critical for the body as proteins and fats.

Fortunately we have an easy option that literally solves all of our problems. Beef liver. It is an honest-to-goodness multivitamin, storing every essential vitamin and mineral. It’s cheap, it’s incredibly healthy, and makes sure you don’t suffer any nutrient deficiencies from following a restricted diet like carnivore. It even has an anti-fatigue effect, making it an ideal midday snack to blot out the post-lunch blues. But there is a problem.

Beef Liver Can Taste Quite Strong

Some people detest the taste of liver, and it does have a metallic tang to it. It may just be that too many of them were force-fed it by their nans, and they’ve developed an intense disliking to this superfood. But there’s just too much to gain in eating liver, and there are ways to mask the taste and turn into a snack that’s tolerable, or downright delicious.

Carnivore Beef Liver Pâté

Keto and carnivore friendly, and flexible enough for you to experiment with extra ingredients. Foods just don't get any more nutritious than liver, but the mineral taste can be overpowering. A decent pâté can mask the flavour and allow you to get the many perks of liver.

I hate liver, but I like pate. (makes no sense) I wanted to add the nutrients from liver to my carnivore diet and I knew this was the only way I’d manage it. 😉 The recipe came out so good! Thank you for sharing!

I’m glad it did! Just keep in mind that you shouldn’t need much liver in the long run. Get your vitamins loaded up at the beginning, and then lower the dose.

Otherwise hypervitaminosis can become an issue.

Keep that for a month, then see how you feel. There are plenty of people out there who had unwanted side effects from continuing liver for too long.
