We’ve had quite a few customers ask us how they could prepare our Fox Trot Farm lamb liver, so I decided to post a great recipe. With the holiday entertaining season in mind, I decided to do a paté!
I found a great recipe on a Welsh food website HERE. I followed the instructions almost exactly but, since it’s a bit cumbersome to read, I’ll write it out for you here. I’ve also include some adjustments that I made.
Fox Trot Farm Welsh Paté
1 Fox Trot Farm Lamb Liver (about 1 pound), roughly chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 teaspoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
2 tablespoons port or sherry
4-6 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
Salt & pepper
2 tablespoons melted butter
Suggested toppings: slices of fresh stone fruit, apples, pears, chutney, honey
Saute the onion and garlic till softened, then add the chopped liver and herbs, with a good dusting of salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring, until the meat is browned and there is no pink inside. Stir in the port or sherry, and simmer a bit to cook off the alcohol. Pour onto a plate or tray to cool to room temperature.
Scrape all the mixture into a food processor and process until the mixture is smooth. Spoon into a mixing bowl, and stir in the mascarpone cheese until the mixture is to your liking. I like it to be fluffy and spreadable. Taste and add more salt and ground black pepper as needed. Spoon into ramekins and top with a thin layer of melted butter. Garnish for service with rosemary sprigs and whole peppercorns.
Serve on crackers or baguette slices with desired toppings.
Here are some pictures of the process.
