Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cooking fat tallow, butter, ghee
  • 12 ounces ground beef
  • 3 small eggs
 Instructions
  1. Divide the meat into three 4-ounce portions.
  2. Flatten each one into a patty with your hands, then place on a cutting board and open up the center hole. Press and pinch edges together, no cracks should show.
  3. Warm a skillet over high heat and add the cooking fat. Use tallow to keep this recipe dairy-free or cook in butter or ghee if you like. Any fat will do.
  4. Support the meat with your free hand while firmly lifting the ring up with a spatula and arrange on the skillet. Repeat until all meat is cooking. Adjust the opening if needed.
  5. While the meat cooks, crack open the eggs and add them one by one to the center of the meat. Continue cooking until the meat is nicely browned, about 3 minutes.
  6. Flip quickly. Cook the second side for about half as long or until eggs set.
  7. Remove from heat, serve, salt liberally and enjoy!

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.

Easy Pickled Eggs Recipe

Pickled eggs are great to snack on, serve as an appetizer, or add to the side of a meal. Not only are they fun to make, but the tangy salty flavor is also so delicious! In this easy pickled egg recipe, there is no canning equipment required because we use brine and the power of a refrigerator instead. It’s so simple!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cure Time: 2+ days

Serves: 8 eggs

Ingredients

  • 8 hard-boiled eggs peeled
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ small onion sliced
  • 2 tbsps pickling spices 
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Add the peeled hard-boiled eggs to a clean glass jar.
  2. Bring the water, vinegar, onion, spices, and salt to a gentle boil for 5 minutes. Then remove from heat and cool slightly.
  3. Pour liquid over the eggs and seal the jar.
  4. Transfer to the refrigerator and leave to sit for at least 2 days until ready to eat. If you can, waiting 1 week is best.
  5. Store in the fridge. Serve whole or sliced with meat or by themselves.

    If you do not have pickling spices, use cloves of garlic, dried herbs and seeds instead. I use 1 tsp dried herb per liter of water/vinegar brine, which covers 8-10 hard boiled eggs.
