    Is Beef Liver Usually Inexpensive?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    There's a meat store out in the country I go to once in a blue moon. Today I was there and happened to see a lone package of beef liver in their freezer. From what I've read, liver is nutritionally good, so I snatched it up. It was only $1.49 a lb. Is beef liver normally this cheap, or did I just buy a funky eat-at-your-own-risk product?

    No that sounds about right, beef liver is one of the very cheapest meats. Other really cheap ones at the grocery are chicken hearts, pig feet and fatty cuts of pork.

    Ground meat or skinless meat often costs a lot more because of the labor. Unprocessed meat is cheap and organ meat is usually the cheapest of the unprocessed meat. Most people don't like the taste so count your blessings and enjoy your liver.

    That's good to know. This will be my first time eating beef liver, and I'm pretty excited.

    add Bacon+Onions, and you'll have a party.

    LOTS of Bacon+Onions. (Like 2x as much as the Liver.)

    Lots of bacon and onions it is, then. Adding bacon to my beef stew recipe is how I finally got my non-primal kids and husband to eat it without dumplings on top. Bacon is awesome!

    My late grandmother used to prepare a dish called Liver Hasslett (or something like that). I am trying to find someone in my family who still has her old recipe. I used to eat it like candy when I was a kid. if memory serves, she cut the liver up into bite size pieces, cut up a few onions, add salt and black pepper, and boil the hell out of it. it had a very unique texture, and I remember soaking a few biscuits with the 'gravy'. Of course, I can't do that anymore, but the liver would sure be good!!!

    I got a tip from a local farmer to grind up liver in the food processor and add it to meatloaf. I have not tried it yet, but I have both beef and lamb liver in my freezer from our CSA. I'm not sure I'd otherwise get past the textural issues. Anyone have other suggestions?

    I owe it all to Sisson and people like you in this forum. I have seen the light, and it is fueled by bacon grease!

    I have never boiled meat before. Now I want to try it out.
