When meatloaf meets quiche with a dose of deeply nourishing organ meats, you get an excellent carnivore diet recipe! Making delicious organ meat recipes you actually want to eat has never been so easy.

Quick and convenient, you can prep a carnivore quiche in 15 minutes. Just lightly brown the meat in beef tallow and pop the skillet in the oven. Sit down to a fine meal just a few minutes later.

With 1.25 g protein to 1 g fat, it has slightly more protein than fat per serving. If you need to add fat, I highly recommend spreading room temperature grass-fed butter on top!

One of the Best Carnivore Diet Recipes

Since releasing The Carnivore Cookbook earlier this year, people often ask “What’s your favorite recipes for a carnivore diet”?

I immediately think of oven finished T-bones, butter-based eggs, and beef heart meatballs among others from my collection of 100+ recipes exclusively featuring animal protein and fats. Finally, my mind settles on one of the last recipes in the “Raw Meat, Organs and Bones” chapter: Organ Meat Quiche Cups.

Yes, that’s the one.

I love this simple recipe that eloquently combines muscle meat, heart, and liver in a one-pan 30-minute meal.

Quiche cups was the carnivore diet recipe that surprised me the most by just how darn good they tasted!

I’m sharing the same recipe with you today. Only instead of baking in a muffin pan, I use a cast-iron skillet. If you don’t have a cast-iron, use a large pie plate instead.

Keto Organ Meat Recipes

If you are enjoying a keto diet and surfing around the keto space, you are bound to come across information about organ meats sooner or later.

Do you know how seriously amazing the benefits of organ meats are?

Liver pate is already world-famous so it can’t be that bad, can it?

Your curiosity must be peaking after seeing our culinary adventures with beef heart, marrow bones, and brain. Heck, our kids even enjoy beef kidney. Something good must be going on here..

Maybe you’re not quite ready for brain (but you could take Ancestral Supplement that supports cognitive function, mood, and memory) so settle with beef heart insead. It’s a pretty easy choice given the growing normalization of #beefheart.

Beef heart is soft and tender, with a slightly sweet flavor. Very similar to sirloin in both taste and texture, the heart is a versatile part and can be seared, braised, pan-fried or ground into carnivore meatballs. Because it is so soft, heart is also eaten raw in tartare.

If you’re on the fence about beef heart, try my savory Beef Heart Meatza. Share it with your family, and I bet no one can tell there is hidden beef heart in the filling!

Carnivore Diet Breakfast

One of the biggest stumbling blocks on a carnivore diet is that people are afraid it will be boring.

Upon first glance, the carnivore food list might seem restrictive but once you see how many options there are, you may be surprised!

Once people feel the satiation, clear and calm mental state, increase in energy and other benefits associated with a carnivore diet, the positive feedback is a clear payoff for more elemental eating.

Most people are also surprised by the extent they legitimately enjoy eating fatty protein day in and day out. It’s simple, quick, and doesn’t require a lot of thought or prep. It might sound crazy to you right now but if you have the slightest interest, give it a try!

Furthermore, I made a 21-day carnivore meal plan with recipes and tips to make your experience easy and enjoyable.

You won’t be bored, I got you covered!

Start your day with this organ meat pie, end it with a nice ribeye steak. Salt liberally and drink water in between. Keep this on repeat and tell me how it goes!

Easy Carnivore Meal Prep

This is a great recipe for meal prep. Make two pies at a time and eat them during the week. You may also bake the recipe in a muffin tray which gives easy to store muffin shapes.

The meat pie may be frozen. If stored in an airtight container, it will keep fresh in the fridge for 5 days and up to 7. Always use your best judgment.

With 1 g net carbs per serving, Organ Meat Pie is a delicious, keto carnivore diet recipe!

Ground Organ Meat

It’s hard to make an organ meat pie without the organs, so you need to find a way to buy and grind them.

Buying liver is pretty easy now since, due to the high nutritional content, it is usually the first organ people try and therefore in growing demand.

The heart may be more difficult to find but it really depends on your specific area.

Organ Meat Pie raw meat close

Get to know your butcher. They can be invaluable to your meat-centric journey. Not only can they tip you off to upcoming sales, but they will also know how to best prepare each cut of meat, and help source organs and other odd bits.

If they can’t or you don’t know who to ask, search your area for a grass-fed beef rancher at or use the resources in my post How to Find Quality Foods.

I usually ask my butcher to grind liver and heart ahead of time before I bring it home.

If you can’t do this, it’s easy to dice and blend the liver and heart in a food processor or blender. Pure one at a time until completely ground up.

Buying the organs preground is not necessary but I do appreciate having it prepped and packaged for me, it’s one less step I need to do before cooking.

Shop online for grass-fed organ meats and beef

Online may be the best way for you to connect with the meats you want. If this is the case for you, I recommend US Wellness for grass-fed beef, lamb, and bison. Plus, they stock excellent nose-to-tail options, including a ready-made ground meat and organ mix that would be perfect for this recipe!

How much organ meat should I eat?

Eat organ meats as you please. Because everyone is coming from a different background, there is a range of frequency we will all have.

If you are new to this way of eating, it might be a big enough accomplishment to have something once a week. If you are already decently versed in the culinary delights of nose to tail eating, having offal a few times a week may be more appropriate.

There is no need to force or stuff yourself with these foods. Eat them as you please.

To make this pie more enticing for you, consider adding stronger flavors like garlic and onion, even hot sauce (assuming your digestive system doesn’t flare up!) to disguise the “organ” flavor of the liver – although that’s my favorite part!

If you are interested in more flavor and know you tolerate certain herbs and spices well, add ½ tablespoon of your favorite seasoning or seasoning mix into the meat.

Another great option is this Braised Beef Heart Recipe (Slow Cook) for a savory organ meat experience.

  1. Hi!

    Excited to jump into nose to tail eating. My hubby isn’t a huge fan of eating meat-based meals, so would there be any sides that you would recommend to serve with this?


    • Hi Sierra, Congratulations on being ready to make the jump! It’s an eye-opening experience. I’ve had really good success with dinner guests enjoying this dish by adding Mexican seasoning (cumin, chipotle, cilantro, onion, garlic) to the meat and egg mixture before baking and serving with a side salad with vinaigrette and guacamole. How does that sound to you?

  2. Thanks for the various ground beef recipes. Just starting to transition into a nose to tail diet and found a great 85/15 ground beef that has 25% organ meat mixed in…great transition meat.

    In the recipe I don’t see you mention how to use the tallow or how much salt is recommended. Ended up finding the tallow in the text above. But for other they may not find it. Thanks again!

  3. 5 stars
    I was always a bit unwilling to cook/eat a heart. This recipe helped me change my mind. LOVE IT!!. Thank you for sharing!

  4. 5 stars
    Love this recipe but here in the UK it is hard to find beef/Ox organ meat especially heart, I think its a throwback from the whole BSE Thing. I did mange to get some on special order from my butcher but it was a pain. So I made it the second time with the much more easily available Lamb hearts and livers (still using ground beef though) and it came out pretty much the same (also the lamb organs are slightly fattier).

  5. Hey thanks for the recipe, how well does this freeze? Trying to have some food stored up for after delivery (since we will be so exhausted)

    • My tip for that is posted in the recipe above 😉

      “I usually ask my butcher to grind liver and heart ahead of time before I bring it home. It’s not hard to dice and pulse in the food processor but I do appreciate having it prepped and packaged for me, it’s one less step I need to do before cooking.”

      Ask your butcher to do it for you or DIY grind in the food processor.
