DS is on solids and I would like to have him eat more meats (for the protein, iron and the animal fats which are supposed to be good for myelinization).<br><br>
anyway I haven't found good ways to make it/serve it besides pureed stew. He does really well with finger feeding. any suggestions or recipes?

How old is your babe? my ds just nowstarted eating meats (he's 9 months). i offered it to him before in purees but never liked it, not homemade not from a jar. now he's chewing a little better so i have given him chicken and a little beef. mostly poached chicken (in a soup) and braised beef (stew). i'm going to try salmon this week.<br><br>
just keep trying but don't push it. good luck!

I've been giving dd a huge hunk of whatever meat (steak, ham, chicken) and she just gnaws on it. She does a pretty good job of turning it into mush with 2 1/2 teeth. She LOVES meat, especially flavorful meat.<br>
Tonight we had chicken sprinkled with sate seasoning (coated actually) and cooked on a very hot cast iron pan in some olive oil for a few minutes. I diced dd's chicken against the grain into cherrio size pieces. She goes crazy for spicy chicken.<br><br>
She never ate much spoon food, she's always been a determined self feeder.

Same here. Fish (tuna, crab, shrimp) are really a good texture; chicken and pork are sure fire winners. About the only meat none of them ate before about a year was a steak - now roast, yes - yummy!<br><br>
I never "pureed" anything for the babies. Table food from 6 months on.

The only meat my DS liked until recently was meatballs (maybe because he didn't get teeth until late). I bought ground all-white meat turkey and made meatballs and poached them in organic chicken broth. Then I froze the broth in ice cube trays and froze the meatballs--that way, he can have soups for lunch--I just put a couple of broth cubes, a couple of meatballs, and some veggies all together--still one of his favorites.

DS #1's first meat was pulled pork BBQ - perfect for a young baby, as it's thin and small and hard to choke on. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
DS #2 hasn't had meat yet (he's had a bit of banana, sucked on a big piece of cantaloupe, and had a bit of pureed apple in the last couple weeks), but I'll probably start him on something similar. DH loves to BBQ. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I haven't and won't be pushing solids on DD until she shows interest but once she does, it'll be right off my plate, either in a big chunk she can bite or small ones she can pick up. I figure I'll give her choice and see which she likes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I give mine lots of stuff, but I have frozen browned hamburger in the freezer, when the food on the table is too tough for them. They love it (lean meat browned with onions and a few spices).

The very first food that DS would eat happily was chili.
