Beef and liver burger are the perfect combination for any type of burger. This meaty patty is not only delicious but also full of nutrients like iron and protein.

The beef and liver burger recipe is easy to make, absolutely delicious, and packed with nutrients. These burgers are rich in iron, zinc, protein, and vitamin B12.

Nothing says loving like Liver in the oven. Wait, what?  If you had told me 5 years ago that I would be eating liver once a week and, even better, enjoy it, I would have slapped your face and called you a liar.

 Ok, maybe I wouldn’t have slapped your face but it is seriously amazing how much my taste buds have changed since I began this diet.

Now, the tricky part of getting your family to eat liver is the flavor.  It’s very rich and minerally and that you have to mask unless you get smart and start acclimating your family to the taste of it.

You know that love to tinker in the kitchen and come up with unique Paleo recipes for burgers (btw you should check out my yummy clam chowder recipe).  Sunday I decided to whip up  my a burger creation using chicken liver.   I’ve experimented with ways to enjoy organ meats without tasting them in the dish.  After many failures I came up with this  beef and liver burger recipe that is yummy and somehow reminds me of breakfast sausage.

Beef and liver burger are the perfect combination for any type of burger. This meaty patty is not only delicious but also full of nutrients like iron and protein.

The perfect combination of beef and liver will be found in this scrumptious patty. The beef is packed with protein along with vitamins and minerals, while the liver is rich in iron, folate, vitamin B12, copper, riboflavin and vitamin A. As soon as these two are combined they create a powerful source of nutritious food.

This burger is not only delicious but also full of nutrients that are essential for the body to function properly. It can help you get your daily dose of protein while supplying your body with essential nutrients that help keep you healthy.

  1. This would be a wonderful recipe for anyone with pastured animal products. It would be most important for woman and other individuals who need an iron boost (great for babies- just cooked meat). I might have to give this one a try for a baby food recipe!

  2. I would have to do this covertly. There’s NO WAY my boyfriend or son would knowingly eat any liver(s)! **plotting** It does look good, though! Thanks for sharing!

    What recipe plugin do you use?

  3. Hi Bejelly,

    Interesting recipe, I would have never thought to add chicken liver. I bet it would taste even better with grass fed beef. Thanks, I’ll give it a try!

  4. What an awesome recipe!!! It is pretty simple, but yet the outcome looks so yummy. I will have to prepare that sometime.

  5. OK, I’m making this tonight for myself for dinner while hubby is working late. I’m a little tired of eating chicken livers by themselves and need to get my iron levels up before the birth of this baby. Thanks so much!

    • Thanks Jenn! I hope that you like it. We just had this for dinner last night. If you don’t mind the taste of liver you can increase the amount in the recipe. I’ve noticed that I enjoy the irony taste more now than when I first starting eating them.

  6. I love your recipes, except you lost me on this one at “liver.” I will be back though – I don’t want to miss out on your other fabulous recipes.

  7. Hello!

    Would these still work using beef liver? And would it be okay if I used a 95% lean ground beef?

    I’m a little nervous but want to try it for a preconception diet!!

    Thank you!!

  8. I made burgers with a ground beef that was 20 percent organ meat that I get from a local farmer via a Farmers Market. I only seasoned them with salt and pepper. My husband and both kids liked the burgers. The liver gives the ground beef a richer flavor, and it makes the meat more tender. I’m just saying, for a weeknight, you can probably find this premixed, and you may not need to add all the seasonings for good taste. Although I may try your seasoning mix just for fun!
