Default How do you cook organ meats...

In particular, chicken livers? Also other types of liver or other organ meats? Since I'm introducing new foods, I don't want to go 'raw' at this time, but not sure how to cook these things or what I can add for enticing flavor. My guy's a very picky eater...

Thanks!

You can boil them in water with some chicken broth.

chicken livers i boil in water. when they're done i chop them up or blend them. good topping. you can blend a lot of things. i cooked a veal tongue tonight. i put in a roasting pan. i laid it on the rack. i put water in the pan. i covered it with aluminum foil (no seam). i split the tongue open and scraped all of the meat out and chopped it up. sometimes i pressure cook a whole chicken. when it's done you break the chicken apart. take the broken pieces and rub it through your fingers or hand (bone included). it turns to mush. i add some water and it makes 3 quarts. i freeze 2 quarts and use 1 quart.

if you're going to use boxed or canned chicken broth i suggest
usuing the kind with no salt added.

Thank you for the quick responses! Hope my guy goes for this! He scarfed stew beef last week, so now it's time to find other meats I hope he'll be equally as impressed with!

when people say their dog is a picky eater i always
wonder is the dog a picky eater or does the dog
not like what you're feeding?

AND no MSG

For an added nutritional boost too is to saute in raw organic coconut oil - dogs LOVE coconut oil either that or real butter - but never margarine

adding parsley, sage, rosemary, tumuric herbs also lend some health benefits...

My dad was a butcher and as a kid I can remember him bringing home all the viscera and putting it in a big pot and boiling it. It stunk the house up but the dogs loved it.

I can't cook organ meats in my house because it makes everyone want to puke. This is what I have to resort to;

On a side note why does it seem so many people cook their dogs food?
