How to Cook Liver so you Actually Like it!

Welcome to Ditch the Wheat! Before you view the recipe I need to make sure you are aware of this. I hear it all the time... You're asking me to give up bread... Even my type 2 diabetic neighbour refuses to give up bread... There's so many reasons to ditch the bread: - gluten - GMO wheat - simple carbs (that cause weight gain) BUT it's so comforting to bite into a soft piece of bread smeared with butter. What if I told you there's bread you can eat that is Paleo and Keto friendly. --> CLICK HERE <--

I started eating liver a few months ago.  I wouldn’t touch the stuff as a kid.  I found that liver tastes excellent (yes, excellent!) when you a) season it and b) don’t overcook it. If you are new to the idea of eating head-to-toe (eating the whole animal, not just the fancy parts) liver is a good organ to start with.  Basically you will want to coat it in generous amounts of salt and pepper all over.  Then I like to add either
parsley or chives.

Place your desired fat in the frying pan (coconut oil, butter, olive oil etc.) and turn the heat to medium-low.  I cook the liver by flipping it once and making sure each side is browned and the middle is slightly medium-rear.  I find if you cook it too long the liver becomes tough. Hopefully this helps you begin your head-to-toe eating adventure.  I’ve only gone as far as liver and bone marrow.  One of these days I’ll venture into heart and tongue. Good luck,

    It has been quite a while since I have had liver. Or even had it cooked this way. The typical traditional Southern way is fried with gravy and onions. Still love it this way. I now need to find grass-fed liver.

    Sliced in to thin strips and then briefly cooked in a saute pan with bacon fat and onions is my preferred method, but I’m going to give this a try too. I you can handle liver you can handle heart. Chicken hearts don’t taste all that different from thighs. Beef has a more pronounced offal taste but still not that bad. And tongue is positively delicious!
