Paleo Chicken liver Pate



1 litre(s)

  • 1 onion
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 300 grams mushroom fresh (mild flavour)
  • 3 tablespoons fat, preferably lard, or a fat that is solid at room temperature
  • 500 grams fresh chicken livers
  • salt and pepper to taste

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Peel and roughly chop onion.  Add to bowl.  Chop SP7, 3seconds.

    2.  Remove rind from bacon, and add to bowl.  SP7, 1 second.

    3. Add Mushrooms.  Chop SP7, 3 seconds.  Scrape down sides and chop SP7 3 seconds.  Check to ensure all chopped.

    4.  Add a tbsp of fat.  Scrape down sides.  Varoma SP1, 5 minutes. 

    5.  In a frypan, fry off small batches of chicken liver in remaining fat.  Cut the pieces up with kitchen scissors as you go, so that it cooks evenly, and that you can keep a close eye on it, so that it doesn't burn.  They are done when just pink  in the middle, and not red, and don't release any blood when turned or pressed.  

    6. In TMX, blend cooked mushroom, onion and bacon mix.  SP7, 1 minute.  Carefully remove lid and scrape down lid and sides.  Replace lid,  SP6, 10 seconds.

    7.  Add livers.  Puree SP7, 1 minute, gradually increasing the speed.

    8. Scrape down lid and sides.  SP7, 10 seconds.

    9.  Check to ensure contents are pureed.  Continue blending if necessary.

    10.  Taste and season if necessary.

    11.  Transfer to glass or ceramic bowl.  Cover with glad wrap and refrigerate.

    12.  Consume within a few days.

Livers benefit from being pre soaked in lemon or lime juice for at least an hour.  I normally use the juice of 2 lemons in a glass vessel to 500 g chicken liver.

    Made this today, great recipe. Soaked the livers in lemon juice for a couple of hours which unfortunately has left the final product with a strong lemon taste. Next time I will forgo soaking. Outside of this, the recipe tastes great and was super easy to make. Thank you so much.
