  • Beef Liver

    Having it for the first time - suggestions on prep? Not looking for a full recipe necessarily, more the best and tastiest way to cook it. I'm thinking of frying it in butter or bacon fat. Thoughts?

    Sounds good. Cook it like steak. Don't overcook it or it will be dry/crumbly and not as good. It pairs well with onions, especially carmelized.

      My mum always soaked hers in a plate of milk for a little while first. She said it mellows the flavour. I never ate the liver she cooked, but I'm working up my nerve to buy some and try it

      She also said, calf liver, if you can get it at a reasonable price is nicer.

        I had some calves liver last night, fried in lamb fat (left over from bone stock) and served with a lamb broth reduction and a couple eggs poached in the broth. It was fabulous.
