1 lb Acabonac Farms grass fed beef liver
1 c milk
2 tbl olive oil
1/4 yellow onion (diced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tbl fresh thyme
3 tbl heavy cream
6 tbl butter
1/3 c white wine
-Defrost liver overnight.
-Pat liver dry with paper towel and cut into 2 inch pieces.
-Place cut liver into large zip-top bag and cover with milk. Allow to rest in refrigerator for 1 hour.
-Remove liver from refrigerator and rinse under cold running water in metal sieve to remove all milk. Pat dry with paper towel.
-In large sauté pan, sauté onions and garlic in olive oil over medium low heat until translucent. Approximately 3 minutes.
-Turn heat up to medium and add liver. Flip pieces once, cooking approximately 3 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
-Add salt, pepper, and white wine to pan and reduce until wine is nearly gone.
-Allow pan to cool - then add contents of pan, butter, cream and thyme to flat bottomed blender (like Vitamix) or food processor.
-Pulse until smooth, scraping down sides frequently. Mixture should not be allowed to get hot.
-Taste for seasoning, add additional salt and pepper if necessary.
-Transfer pâté to glass or ceramic container and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Plastic should touch surface of mixture to prevent oxidization.
-Allow to set in refrigerator for one hour before serving with bread, toast or crudité.
