Organ Meat Pie – Simple Carnivore Diet Recipe

posted in: Recipes

When meatloaf meets quiche with a dose of deeply nourishing organ meats, you get an excellent carnivore diet recipe!

Quick and convenient, you can prep a carnivore quiche in 15 minutes. Just pop it in the oven and 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, I get asked “What’s one of your favorite carnivore diet recipes” all the time.

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.

The simple recipe that takes 30 minutes start to finish and eloquently combines muscle meat, heart and liver all into one actually delicious meat pie.

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.

Culinary Delights of Nose-to-Tail Eating

Sooner or later you will want to try eating more organ meats because you keep hearing all the hype about how great nose-to-tail eating is.

You try liver first. That’s easy. Liver pate is already world-famous so it can’t be that bad, can it?

After listening to this crazy couple at Primal Edge Health discuss their culinary adventures with beef heart, marrow bones, and brain, your curiosity is peaking.

Not quite ready for brain (but you could take down Ancestral Supplement’s formula that supports cognitive function, mood, and memory) you settle with beef heart. 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 prepared in steaks, braised, or cubed and pan-fried. 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!

The combo of beef, heart, liver is a great trifecta of taste and nutrition! This recipe is a carnivore diet staple of mine. I hope it helps normalize organ meats in your diet!

Tips for Making Carnivore Diet Recipes

One of the biggest stumbling blocks to a carnivore diet that I hear is that people are afraid it will be “boring.” 

  1. Most people start feeling so satiated, clear-headed, and high energy that the benefits of the diet are a clear payoff for elemental eating.

  2. 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.

  3. I wrote an entire Carnivore Cookbook AND Meal Plan with bonus recipes and tips; you won’t be bored, I got you covered!

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.

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.

Just Offal: Organ Meat Pie

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.

Using strong flavors like garlic and onion, even hot sauce (assuming your digestive system doesn’t flare up!) will disguise the “organ” flavor of the liver – although that’s specifically my favorite part!

There are many different types of culinary salts as well! They all modify the flavor slightly, Black Lava and Cypress Flake Salt are some of my favorites.

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, but always use your judgment.

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

      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.

      Must be from the Liver, it has trace amounts of carbohydrate
