Where can I buy pork liver? (Making Boudin, pics added!)

I want to try my hand at making boudin, but I don't know where to find pork liver. Any suggestions?

Oakpoint in Watson usually has it, I would think leblanc's can get it for you. I have only seen it frozen at Oakpoint.

I would suggest looking at a farmers market for hoping to hook up with a pig farmer.

Rouse's sells it frozen next to the beef and calf liver.

pork liver


Was looking for it myself a few months ago. Matherne's said they could special order it and have in a few days. There is a small meat market on Bueche Road across the River that said over the phone they have it available all the time. Can't think of name now. Will post tomorrow if I can find it.

I was pressed for time and ended up just using chicken livers. Will try pork liver next time.

Great. Thanks for the help

I've heard of using chicken livers, and thought about using it, but if I can find pork... Gotta go with it.

Look in the frozen foods section of LeBlanc's. They have it and so do a number of other groceries. Never seen it except frozen, though.

Pork, water, chicken gizzards, pork liver, rehydrated onions, flavorings: brown kwik (water, caramel, white vinegar, citric acid, garlic powder, flavorings, salt, onion powder, molasses, mustard, cumin, cinnamon, celery spices, sodium benzoate), slat, spices, rehydrated bell pepper, garlic powder, roux {enriched flour, vegetable oil [cottonseed, corn, or rice oil (antioxidant [TBHQ and citric acid])}, rehydrated celery, and rehydrated parsley.

I got 5 lbs. from Ralph's on the cheap. (Someone ordered it and never picked it up) I got 2 lbs. from Leblancs, they do keep it in stock.

Picked up everything I need, now it's time to turn it to drink and make it happen.

I'll update with pictures when it's finished.

Didn't finish stuffing til 11:00. Took longer than I thought to get it all put together.

Anyway, here is the ingredients, roughly.


5 cup Bellpepper
5 cups celery
13 cups of onion
4 cup parsley
Two whole minced garlic
7 cup green onion
Quarter cup Chyanne
9/10 cup salt
Quarter cup black pepper
2 tablespoon garlic powder
25 pound Boston butt
8 pounds pork liver

Emerils recipe would have called for 60 cups of cooked rice, and that's how much I cooked, but I didn't add it all.

I also reserved 1/3 the batch and added jalapeño for a little extra kick. It was a good addition, gave it more of a rounded spice as opposed to a back of the throat burn from the pepper.

Also, I took about 10lb and set aside for boudin balls. I didn't measure the total weight, but it was probably over 40 pounds of boudin. The bill was right around $100. So it cost a little over $2.00/lb to make. Not too bad considering the cost in the stores.

All the Boston Butt, Pork Liver, onions, celery, garlic, bell pepper after simmering for a couple hours.

Everything run through the grinder and the rice added.


Stuffing the casings.


The finished product!



It was a good day to drink beer and make boudin. I think next I'll try hog head cheese.

Yeah, I just hurt myself on it for lunch. I'm full as a tick, there is a nap in my near future.

How did you get that yellow knife and the casings to stick to the ceiling?



Looks great. The internet is nothing until it allows us to smell and taste some of this awesome food.
