GF Beef heart Chorizo w/ eggs

Everyone has a favorite ethnicity of food. One of my favorites would have to be authentic Mexican food. So tasty!!!! As I walked the aisles of my local grocery store yesterday, I saw Chorizo, and I instantly wanted Chorizo and eggs. As I proceed to  investigate the ingredients on the different chorizos available, none of them are paleo/primal friendly. Most of the Chorizo has MSG in it. NO BUENO!! There is only one guarantee that your food is paleo, and that is to cook it yourself.

Today, I will share my Chorizo recipe and it is absolutely fantastic :)

GF Beef heart (Diced in small cubes, 1cm cubes)                     1lb
Minced Garlic                                                                                       4 cloves
Garlic powder                                                                                       1 tsp
Ground Coriander                                                                                1/2 tsp
Ground Cumin                                                                                         1/2 tsp
Ground black pepper                                                                           1/4 tsp
Ground white pepper                                                                           1/4 tsp
Salt                                                                                                               1 tsp
Ground cinnamon                                                                                 1/2 tsp
Ground cloves                                                                                         1/4 tsp
Oregano leaves                                                                                       1 tsp
Thyme                                                                                                        1/2 tsp
Sweet paprika                                                                                         1 tbsp
Mexican chili powder                                                                          1 tbsp
White vinegar                                                                                           2 tsp

1.) Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl thoroughly.
2.) Pre-heat a skillet and fry the mixture together until thoroughly cooked.
3.) Hearts tend to have a lot of blood and juices when they are being cooked. So cook the mixture on medium heat until all the liquid is absorbed.
4.) Serve it on a plate and enjoy some Paleo Chorizo!

  1. Raf, I am srtuggling to see how what you made can be called chorizo as chorizo I know and love is typically a fermented cured sausage - primarily including pork. There are several variations - but what you cooked doesn't even come close to any of those either!
