You’ll be mind blown by how good this easy beef kidney recipe for keto and carnivore diets is! If you want to eat more nose to tail, this 3-step stovetop dish is a great way to normalize the presence of nutrient-dense organ meats in your home.

Prep Time: 6 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 14 minutes
Servings: 4

Equipment

  • small pot with lid

Ingredients

  • 1 beef kidney
  • salt to taste, optional
  • butter best cold, optional

Instructions

  • Fill a small pot with enough water to submerge the kidney.
  • Cover and bring water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Reduce the heat, add kidney and leave the lid cracked to allow heat to escape.
  • Boil for 8 minutes, monitor the heat so water does not boil over.
  • Remove from heat. Drain water and quickly rinse kidney under cool water if desired.
  • To serve, simply cut into half, medallions or bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle with optional salt to taste and eat with cold butter ad libitum.

Notes

The fat is excellent and should be left on.

Cooking time may vary due to the size of kidney. I cook the average beef kidney for 8 minutes, extra-large ones may go for as long as 10 minutes. Lamb, sheep, and goat kidneys are smaller, typically I only boil them for 4 to 5 minutes or so.

You want the kidney to boil for the full cooking time. Regulate temperature by adjusting the flame and setting the lid more or less cracked (open) to find the sweet spot of boiling but not boiling over.

Perfect Parmesan Pork Roast (Inspired by Victorian Recipe)

A very delicious and simple recipe. Refrigerates wonderfully, great for eating on for days.
 
You will need: 
1 4 lbs pork loin roast
3 ounces of lard
2 sticks of butter
1/2 cup shredded OR ground Parmesan cheese. I found ground to be easiest, shredded looks prettier and more rustic if your hosting.
serves: 4
 
Pre time: 10 min
cook time: 2 hours

Pre heat oven: 300

 
Prepare your pork loin roast by rinsing then patting dry, Rub the top and sides with lard, then dust with Parmesan. For a thick crust pat down and re-dust. 
Place both sticks of butter in pot and gently wedge the roast in between. Make sure the lid is on tight, then place in your oven. 
 
At the 1 hour mark add 1/3 cup of water 
 
Enjoy!

Goat Cheese Prosciutto Quiche

4 eggs

½ cup cream

4 ounce goat cheese

2 Tbs mayonnaise (optional)

2 Folio cheddar cheese shells or 4 ounces shredded cheese

3 ounces prosciutto

Pinch of salt


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Layer your 2 cheese shells in the bottom of a 6” sillicon round pan.

Bake cheese for 10 minutes.

Let cool.

Thoroughly whisk eggs, cream, mayo and salt together.

Once cheese crust has cooled, spread half the goat cheese onto the crust, layer with prosciutto and then layer the goat cheese and prosciutto again.

Slowly pour your egg mixture over the layers. 

Place your silicone pan on a sheet pan and bake covered with foil for 30 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for about 10 more minutes or until center is just set.

You can easily double this recipe to use a larger baking pan like a pie pan. If doing so, check at 40 minutes instead of 30 minutes.

Philly Cheesesteak

Makes 2 sandwiches

4 pieces of your favorite carnivore bread (this goes well with chicken buns)

12-16 ounces boneless ribeye or flank

2-4 pieces of provolone

2 tsp onion flakes or powder

Salt

Black Pepper

1 tsp butter

Freeze your steak 20 minutes. 

Remove from freezer and slice as thin as you can.

Season your meat with onion, salt and black pepper.

Make your steak into 2 piles.

Heat your cast iron to medium-high heat.

Once your pan is hot, grease with butter.

Take your 2 piles of meat and sear them in the hot buttered pan.

Do not stir them in the pan, you want them to keep the shape they are in.

After they have a nice sear on one side, take a spatula and carefully flip them over.

Top meat piles with a slice of cheese on each stack. Cover with a lid or a piece of foil over the pan and let the cheese melt.

Once the cheese is melted, take your pile of meat and stack it in between your carnivore bread.
