First time cooking Liver!
I have had a few pounds of liver sitting in the freezer since I bought my 1/4 cow in spring. I re-stock on beef in about a month, but in the mean time it's all I have left! Here's what I did:
1lb Liver, sliced 1/3 inch
1/2 sweet onion (Walla Walla), chopped
Half small glass Whisky
Coconut Oil (extra virgin, strong flavor!)
Melted oil in pan
Chopped onion and cooked on low/med for 10 minutes with the lid on
Turned up heat to med/high to caramelize, took the lid off.. 5m stirring often
De-glazed with Crown Royal
Pushed that off to the side of the pan
Browned liver on one side, then the other, same pan
Mixed liver with onions and fresh cracked pepper
Replaced lid, let simmer on med/low until cooked through.
left with well colored onions, tender liver, and a little sauce from having the lid on while cooking.
D E L I C I O U S !!
The whole thing is slightly sweet to my no-sugar-allowed-primal-tongue, and has a great sassy flavor from the whiskey.
I also cooked up an old staple of mine, acorn squash halved & de-seeded, placed face down on a deep oven pan with about 1/4 inch of water, 350 F for about an hour then spooned out and mixed with a few raisins for treat.
The liver has been a side dish to every meal since I made it! I'm always amazed how a few simple ingredients can make something so great. The best part for me is I only had to wash the pan, knife, and cutting board (scooping spoon re-used as a utensil).
Any favorite Liver recipes? The next wrap of liver will be thawing this weekend.
