    Question So I bought a big slab of fresh lamb liver...

    Now what do I do with it so that I can convince my family (and me!) to eat it? Anyone got any good recipes that disguise the flavour/texture a bit?

    Watching post with baited breath. Just took out some sliced beef liver from the freezer. I have never had liver in my life! Make me a lover the first time around, homies!

    My dh (the chef) simply pats it dry, slices it (1/4"-3/8" thick), coats it in masa harina (not primal, but gluten-free and it won't kill you in such small quantities!) adds salt & pepper and pan fries it over high heat briefly in butter or lard (a few min.) Delicioso!

    Here's a link to the Nourishing Traditions recipe:
    Recipe: Liver & Onions

    And here's a recipe to turn the leftovers into paté, if you wish.

    Liver and onions is always good
    Fry off slivers of livers and sliced onion rings together in butter/lard etc until nicely browned.

    This with mashed potato and gravy used to be a weekly favourite in my house when I was a kid.

    I usually soak it in water for an hour or so (I think it gets rid of some of the "livery" flavor that I'm not a huge fan of), then pat dry and slice into two-inch strips.

    Chop up some bacon and cook it in a cast iron skillet, and when the bacon is crispy, pull it out and drain off/save all but a tablespoon of the bacon fat. Toss the liver in and cook for a few minutes in the remaining fat (not too long, you want it medium at most, otherwise it will be mealy), then toss the bacon bits back for a few seconds to warm up and serve.

    I've done this with both beef and lamb liver, and it's delicious every time.

    I'm a former liver hater and current liver enjoyer (though not desirer yet--working on that). I think one key is not overdoing to cooking. Dry, shoe leather liver is terrible. Have the heat high enough to get a nice crust on the outside while leaving the inside just a touch pink. Oh, and butter or bacon fat and grilled onions are a great help as well.
    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.

    Fried Caves liver is the best thing in the world. I'm not sure how to prepare it but i highly suggest you find out if you want to eat liver. Further more if you or anyone has any interesting Recipes to share, share them here really fat foods

    liver stroganoff - rich, creamy and completely amazing. just throw in some onion and mushroom with a load of butter. when cooked take out then add the liver (literally for no more than 2 minutes) throw back in the onions and mushroom with some wine and some dairy of some kind. give it a few minutes for the alcohol to burn off and away you go.

    I bought my first pound of grass-fed beef liver tonight. I am giddy as a schoolgirl for tomorrow's dinner, but I admit -- there is backup sausage in the fridge.

    I bought a package that has a lamb liver and a heart and I have not come to grips with it. I keep puttingit back in the freezer. I think I'll try the masa approach.

    I just checked the NT recipe and it says to saute it for half an hour! Can that possibly be right for a 1/2" thick slice of liver? I'm thinking shoe leather and onions for sure....
