Beef liver and onions with bacon and mushrooms (with side of Fermented Veggies) Serves 4 These tender, juicy beef livers with onions, bacon and mushrooms will help you develop a love for organ meats which are nutritional powerhouses in their own right.
Ingredients 1 lb beef liver, sliced into ½ inch slices 2 ½ cups mushrooms, sliced 1⁄2 cup beef bone broth 1⁄4 cup dry white wine or substitute additional stock 1⁄4 cup arrowroot starch or corn starch or organic flour 1 onion, thinly sliced 5 slices smoked bacon 2 Tbsp fresh thyme, chopped ½ tsp pink Himalayan salt ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper 3 Tbsp butter or coconut oil for frying
Instructions If your beef liver doesn’t come sliced, slice the liver into ½ inch strips. Place liver slices in a shallow bowl or plate and cover with cows milk. Place covered in the fridge for a couple hours - optional but will make the flavour less ‘intense’ When you’re ready to cook, Fry bacon slices in skillet until crispy. While bacon is frying, combine arrowroot starch, salt and pepper on a plate. Remove beef liver soaking in milk from the fridge. Dry the liver slices off with paper towel. Lightly dredge the liver slices in arrowroot starch or corn starch mixture. Remove bacon from skillet, set aside, leave the bacon fat in the skillet because you’re going to fry the liver slices in it. Add liver slices to the skillet and sear for 1 minute maximum on each side. As liver slices are cooked, place them on a plate. Once you’re done cooking liver slices it’s time to make the onions and mushrooms. Add butter or coconut oil to the skillet and sauté the onions until tender. Throw in the mushrooms with the onions. Add the fresh thyme. Remove everything from the skillet to the plate with cooked liver. Add the stock and wine to deglaze the skillet. Cook on medium heat until the liquid is reduced to a thick sauce. Return EVERYTHING to the skillet, beef slices, onions, bacon and mushrooms, warm through and serve. Enjoy with a side of Kimchi and broccoli or your favourite vegetables.
Beef or Bison Bone Broth Recipe
6 pounds beef marrow and knuckle bones
½ cup raw apple cider vinegar
4 quarts filtered water
3 celery stalks, halved
3 carrots, halved
2 med. onions, quartered
2 cloves garlic
3 sprigs thyme
Handful of fresh parsley
Pinch of unrefined Sea salt
Place bones in a pot or a crockpot, add apple cider vinegar and cold water, and let the mixture sit for 1 hour so the vinegar can leach the mineral out of the bones.
Add more water if needed to cover the bones.
Add the vegetables and herbs then bring to a simmer (avoid a rolling boil)
Skim the scum from the top and discard as needed.
Reduce to a low simmer, cover, and cook for 24-48 hours (if you're not comfortable leaving the pot to simmer overnight, turn off the heat and let it sit overnight, then turn it back on and let simmer all day the next day)
During the last 10 minutes of cooking, throw in a handful of fresh parsley for added flavor and minerals.
Let the broth cool and strain it, making sure all marrow is knocked out of the marrow bones and into the broth.
Add sea salt to taste and drink the broth as is or store in fridge up to 5 to 7 days or freezer up to 6 months for use in soups or stews.
There are many reasons for incorporating good-old-fashioned bone broth into your diet. The following health benefits attest to its status as "good medicine."
Helps heal and seal your gut, and promote healthy digestion. The gelatin found is bone broth is a hydrophilic colloid. It attracts and holds liquids, including digestive juices, thereby supporting proper digestion
Promotes strong, healthy bones; Bone broth contains high amounts of calcium, magnesium and other nutrients that play an important role in healthy bone formation.
Promotes healthy hair and nail growth thanks to the gelatin in the broth
Reduces joint pain and inflammation, courtesy of chondroitin sulphates, glucosamine and other compounds extracted from the boiled down cartilage.
Fights inflammation: Amino acids such as glycine, proline and arginine all have anti-inflammatory effects
Inhibits infection caused by cold and flu viruses
Bone Broth is a Game Changer
Bone broth is a nutritious liquid made from ingredients you probably have in your kitchen right now. Animal bones, meat, vegetables, and herbs all simmer together to release powerful nutrients like collagen, gelatin, calcium, plus loads of minerals.
Bones are hiding so much of what they have to offer. But all you have to do to learn their secrets is pop them on the stove with some apple cider vinegar, some vegetables, spices and water. It is an elemental process, heat, water, bones, and time all combine to create the stock of life.
Once you master bone broth you’ll realize there is no such thing as scraps anymore. Think twice before composting your organic scraps, as leftover bones from any animal can be extracted for brothy goodness.
85% of your immune health depends on the health of your gut, so it’s the best place to support a healthy body and strong organs. Your digestive system and gut are craving healthy ingredients. “Happy Gut = Happy Life” Processed sugars, refined fats, and excess salt can hurt your gut and make you feel sluggish, weak and vulnerable. Bone broth is a nutrition powerhouse. It's high in amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein, which in turn create your cells. Eating healthy creates a change in the very smallest level of your body. Bone broth is especially high in two extremely important amino acids: proline and glycine.
Proline strengthens cell walls, a fundamental way to heal the gut from digestive disorders. Proline has even been known to assist skin in need, from adding a healthy glow to limiting unwanted acne breakouts.
Glycine is used to treat mental health conditions and strengthen your kidneys. It is also a natural detoxifier that calms your central nervous system and improves the digestion of fats.
Your body can’t produce enough of these essential amino acids on its own, you need to eat right to keep your levels up. Instead of adding another daily supplement, bone broth is a fun and easy way to get proline and glycine to do their thing in your gut.
Nutrients In Bone Broth Bone broth is the drink that does not stop giving. Here are some more important nutrients your body will thank you for after the first sip:
Electrolytes: Sodium, potassium, and magnesium (the core of electrolytes) all exist in bone broth. Electrolytes can help you recover from sickness or after a tough workout. Start thinking “hot thermos” before “sports drink” next time you get back from a run.
Collagen: Built from the amino acids you get in a cup of bone broth, collagen keeps your bones dense and durable. It also hydrates your skin and lowers blood pressure.
Gelatin: This protein is essential for building and maintaining body tissues. Gelatin also is known to provide energy and keep all your organs functioning properly.
Calcium: All living organisms need calcium to survive, in fact, it's the most abundant mineral in your body. Proper bone growth depends on calcium. Calcium also plays a key role in your cardiovascular system, keeping your heart muscle strong and pumping.
Some people take each of these nutrients in supplemental form as pills and tablets. But you can save time and squish all those steps into one by just condensing those nutrients right out of your leftover bones.
Even MORE Health Benefits From Bone Broth!
You are getting so many nutrients out of these ingredients, you should know some of their considerable health benefits. You might be surprised what bone broth can do for your body.
Improved Immune Resilience: Your ability to naturally fight dis-ease is enhanced through bone broth. The nutrients keep your body strong and resilient.
Healthier Gut Health: The natural gelatin in bone broth assists your body’s ability to absorb and transport food and water. Healthy intestines lead to a healthy body and lessen symptoms of IBS and Crohn's.
Better Brain Function: The fatty acids in bone broth have been shown to increase mental acuity. Supporting a better memory, quicker mind, and less stress are some ways your brain is given a boost.
Helps Joint Health: Collagen, gelatin, proline, and glycine — all work together to support your joints. These proteins build connective tissue and cartilage — which can lessen the effects of painful joint and bone dis-ease.
Aids In Reducing Inflammation: Arginine, another amino acid found in bone broth, has been shown to help reduce chronic inflammation. Inflammation is linked to various uncomfortable health conditions.
May Help Weight Loss: Low in calories, but high in protein — this drink can make you feel full without overeating. The water content helps you feel fuller and manages appetite control.
Sleeping Aid: Glycine (that super amino acid) also promotes healthy sleep. People who consume just 3 grams of glycine have been found to fall asleep faster and maintain a deep sleep all night.
