    Liver= gross

    Primal Fuel
    I tried liver for the second time tonight, I would love to like it, but both times I've tried it I really can't stand it. There's just something about the strong flavor that I find highly unpalatable. I hope I'm not the only one that feels this way. The first time I tried it I cooked it up with a bunch of onions, tonight I made meetza. I used 2lbs of ground beef and 1/3lb calves liver. The meetza is edible as far as I'm concerned, but it would be much better without the pesky liver taste.
    Is there any good way to include some liver in the diet without having to deal with the liver taste?
    I've thought about the curry or chili option but I am not too thrilled about screwing up some grassfed ground beef just to eat a tiny bit of liver.

    Maybe try chicken livers first, to get used to the milder flavor and work up from there? Whenever I roast a chicken, I take the liver and fry it with onions, garlic, and lots of butter, then puree it and put it in the fridge to set. Next day, I have chicken liver pate...mmmmm.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    I have too many bad memories of eating liver as a child, I can't even bring myself to try it again as an adult, even though I fully agree that it is good for you. I just can't do it, and I'm not a picky eater. My palate can tolerate almost anything.

    Yup, Liver=gross. I agree.

    I tried calves liver last night with citrus and the liver-ness was greatly reduced. Still, if you can't stand the stuff...alas.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    Turn it into pate with a bunch of spices mixed in.
    I have to agree though, it tastes like shit..

    I'm actually starting to like the stuff. I've no idea how this happened, for I've been an avowed liver-hater for nigh upon 5 decades. My mother, if she were alive, would faint from shock.

    I agree that pate is a good starter: for some reason I always liked liverwurst (poor man's pate).

    Liverwurst tastes of fat, with the specific liver flavour being muted.

    @OP - feel better now, would you like to lie down?
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    That explains it. Fat = yum

    Thanks! I guess Liverwurst will be the next thing I try. What should I look for when buying it?
