How to Make Liver Pate: Step by Step

Liver pate usually begins by searing the liver. If you are working with beef liver or other ruminant liver (lamb, sheep, goat, bison etc) trim off any extra bits and slice it up into thin strips. Chicken, duck, and rabbit livers are small and don’t need any preparation.

Wait for the pan to heat up until it’s very hot and then sear each side in a bit of cooking fat.

Cooking fats can vary from butter to coconut oil, duck fat, or schmaltz.

Let the meat cool slightly and then blend it up with whatever flavorful add-ins the recipe calls for and additional fat.

Pates should chill in the fridge overnight for the best results. This gives time for the flavors to meld together which is important because the noticeable taste of liver decreases at the pate sits and chills.

Using herbs, garlic and onion are great ways disguise the liver if you are not yet accustomed to it.
