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.
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.
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.
Tasty Beef and Liver Burger Recipe
- 1.25 lbs Ground Beef, I prefer 20% ground beef
- 1/4 lb Chicken livers
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, omit for AIP
- 1 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon Poultry Seasoning
- 1/2 medium Red Onion, peeled
- In your food processor add your chicken liver and red onion.
- Pulse until it's a mush.
- Next add in the ground beef and all the spices.
- Pulse the food processor for roughly 1 minute until the mixture is blended.
- It will be slightly sticky so you will want to wet your hands before shaping the patties.
- Shape the mixture into four 4" wide patties.
- Cook/Grill patties until it reaches your desired doneness (is that a word?).
- Enjoy on a lettuce wrap or hamburger bun.

Thanks for the recipe Kelly. Looks pretty good and easy to make. I’ll give this a try.
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!
I will admit that I am starting to like the irony taste of liver but these burgers just hide it so well that even my mother-in-law, who hates liver, likes them.
Man — these would be a great boost for preggo/nursing periods. I had horribly low iron after birth.
I didn’t even think of that but yes it would be a much tastier way to get iron in your diet 🙂
My belly just growled! Seems to do that quite often when i visit your site!
Goodness! Thanks for the compliment and if you try this recipe, please report back!
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?
I love this recipe because it really hides the taste of the liver. I want the nutrients but not the taste. I use the easy recipe plugin.
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!
Wow, it sounds great, and your photo is gorgeous!
Your site looks amazing by the way!
Thank you! It took me forever to get the look down.
I have not tried liver since I was little. I should give it a second chance.
You really can’t taste the liver in the recipe so if you want to try something new, I recommend it.
I would never have thought to put liver in a burger but your photos look yummy!
What an awesome recipe!!! It is pretty simple, but yet the outcome looks so yummy. I will have to prepare that sometime.
Not sure I could do the liver part, but it looks yummy!
Looks yummy 🙂 I will have to give it a try.
I’m not sure I could get past the Chicken Livers LOL
I wish I was open minded enough to try liver!
This recipe sounds yummy to me!
I would have to leave the liver out.
Sound good to me!!
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.
The weekend got away from me so I wound up making them tonight instead. I nearly doubled the liver and am hoping it shows on my iron test tomorrow. These were great with guacamole and jalapenos.
Thanks for sharing 🙂 I love your addition of jalapenos. I hope that your iron level have gone up!
This looks amazing!
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.
Ha! I promise you don’t even taste it in the recipe 🙂
I keep forgetting to add liver to our meats.
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!!
Yes, you might have to add oil to the pan though. Baby dust to you.
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!
