  • 4 medium carrots
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp. grass fed butter
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp. coconut aminos (separated)
  • 3 tsp salt (separated)
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. dried thyme (dried)
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder

  1. Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium heat. While it heats, mince the shallots, carrots and garlic until fine. When the skillet comes to temperature add in the vegetables and sauté until aromatic and tender, about 8 minutes, stir often.
  2. Add in the chicken livers along with  1 tsp salt and dried oregano. Cook, stirring often, until the livers are browned all over.  Add in the 1 tbsp. coconut aminos and 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar and cook until reduced and livers are cooked.
  3. Remove from heat, and let cool a few minutes. Transfer to a food processor and pulse until it looks like ground beef. Then transfer to a large bowl, to cool to room temp.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 425F. Add the ground beef to the bowl with the remaining salt and the rest of the seasoning. Mix well.  Shape 1 ½ inch balls, will make aprx 30.
  5. Drizzle olive oil all over the sheet pan. With oiled hands, coat each meatball in a little olive oil and you handle it to place it on the sheet pan. Then lightly drizzle them with the remaining coconut aminos.
  6. Place in the oven, roast at 425F for 5 minutes. Then turn the temperature down to 350F and roast another 20 minutes before removing from the oven.
  7. These meatballs are perfect for meal prep or feeding a crowd. Dunk them in ranch, pile on some guac or drizzle with lemon tahini sauce for some extra fats!
