Homemade Pemmican Recipe (with Organ Meat)

This Homemade Pemmican Recipe always goes in my bag when we go camping, traveling, and on long hikes. It is the ideal food for taking on the go outdoors because it’s lightweight, nutrient-dense, and doesn’t need to be refrigerated.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 16 pieces

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 300 grams lean meat, dried and ground
  • 100 grams beef liver, dried and ground
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons herbs and spices, optional
  • 400 grams beef tallow, melted

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine the dry meat, liver, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Add optional herbs and spices, mix well.
  2. Melt tallow in a double boiler over medium heat.
  3. Pour over the dry ingredients. Stir well until thoroughly combined. Break apart all clumps. Tallow should fully incorporate into the meat. If still crumbly, add more melted fat.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly in an 8×8-inch baking dish and leave to harden at room temperature or place in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes. Once firm, score into squares. Alternatively, you can roll the “dough” into balls with your hands.
  5. Store pemmican in an airtight container in the pantry. If made correctly, it is shelf-stable and will never spoil. You may also store it in the refrigerator if that makes you more comfortable.
 

Notes

Use any type of liver (beef, sheep, goat, etc) in combination with any meat (beef, bison, lamb, etc).

 

To add heart, adjust to 200 g dry, ground meat, 100 g dry, ground heart, and 100 g dry ground liver.

 

To make pemmican without liver, follow my Traditional Pemmican Recipe instead.

Author: Maria Emmerich
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • Meatloaf Cordon Bleu:
  • 2 pounds ground beef 85% lean
  • ½ cup chopped mushrooms
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced cooked ham
  • 4 ounces provolone cheese, sliced
  • Breading:
  • ½ cup powdered Parmesan cheese (or more pork panko if dairy free)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup pork panko or crushed pork rinds
  • 4¾-inch-thick slices cold leftover keto meatloaf
  • Duck fat spray
 
Instructions
  1. Meatloaf Cordon Bleu:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, Parmesan, mushrooms, eggs, and onion. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pat the meat mixture out onto a piece of waxed paper, and flatten to ½ inch thick.
  4. Lay slices of ham onto the flattened meat, and top with slices of cheese. Pick up the edge of the waxed paper to roll the flattened meat up into a log. Remove waxed paper, seal the ends and seam, and place the loaf into a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the loaf is no longer pink inside.
  6. Fried Meatloaf:
  7. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  8. Set three wide, shallow dishes (such as pie plates) in a row on the counter. Put the powdered Parmesan in the first dish. Crack the egg into the second dish and beat it lightly with a fork. Put the pork panko or crushed pork rinds in the third dish.
  9. Working with one slice at a time, dredge the meatloaf first in the powdered Parmesan and then in the egg, coating it on all sides and shaking gently after each dip to knock off the excess. Lay the meatloaf in the pork panko, scatter some crumbs on top of the slice, and press gently to adhere. Flip and repeat once or twice with the crumbs to coat really well; be sure to get the edges as well. As you finish each slice, set it on a tray.
  10. Spray the coated slices of meatloaf with duck fat spray. Place slices into the air fryer 8 minutes, flipping with a spatula after 4 minutes or until slices are golden brown. Serve hot.

Pemmican

This pemmican recipe combines the two most essential ingredients for human health: animal meat and fat. It is one of my easy keto recipes that is a long-lasting option for backpacking, hiking, camping and other forms of travel because it won’t spoil, smush or spill. 

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 454 grams meat dried and ground
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons herbs and spices optional
  • 454 grams tallow melted

Instructions

  1. Melt the tallow in an oven-safe container or double boiler over medium-low heat. At 350° F/175° C, it takes about 10 minutes in the oven.
  2. Combine the meat, salt, and optional herbs and spices in a bowl.
  3. Once the tallow is melted, but not too hot, pour over the dry material and combine well. There should be just enough tallow to moisten all the meat but not make puddles. If the fat does not completely incorporate the dry meat, add a little more. Mix well.
  4. Transfer into an 8x8-inch baking dish to set. Then score into squares and store in an airtight container.

Notes

See notes in recipe text for the best way to dry meat.

In place of cutting into squares, it is also possible to roll the mixture in your hands like a meatball and form small balls.

Silicon molds and standard or mini muffin size pans are also useful for forming uniform shaped pieces. Chocolate or soap molds can both be used for this purpose if they have a shape you like.
