    Liver

    Shop Now
    I know I should be eating liver, and today I finally gave in and tried it. Either my cooking method/recipe was a fail, or liver really is just that gross. Ugh, all my of dreams of eating liver and avoiding supplements have been smashed to bits. I even tried making a pate with the liver and it was all just wrong for me. The taste wasn't too bad, the texture is what ruined it. Actually, now that I think about it I did have to drink about 1/2 a bottle of wine to get that taste out of my mouth. Apparently I think it's all bad. So here I am wondering if there's any other way to get in a 1/4 lb of liver a week. Any suggestions?

    soak it in milk for a few hours then fry it in butter

    other than that, try other liver that isn't as strong(chicken, i think it's shit though) calf(milder taste), or lamb. also dessicated liver tabs.

    I actually did soak it in milk, for a long time. I'll see if I can find other animals, so far all I've been able to find is beef

    Just dont eat it. Buy liver tabs if you are that concerned but really there is nothing in liver that you cant get elsewhere. Forcing down something you dont like is not healthy even if its for health reasons.

    I hate liver too, with a passion. This is the least offensive version I have found But I cube the liver in to tiny pieces before frying, and top it would lots of lemon juice and cilantro. It's not too terrible.

    I also can choke down yakitori style chicken livers at a good japanese restaurant. I am going to try to figure out how to make those next.

    Forgot to mention but if you REAAALLLY want to get liver into your diet, the best way i have heard would be to grind it up and mix it with hamburger.

    Counterintuitively, a neighbor of mine told me that pig's liver is milder than chicken liver. I haven't tried it yet since I'm a huge fan of chicken liver, but I'm sure I will eventually.

    I like it sauteed in wine or sweet vermouth and butter. I've never soaked chicken liver in milk, but I would soak liver that had a strong smell.

    If liver is impossible for you to like, try eating heart. It doesn't have that ooshy taste.

    Most overcook liver. It should be rare (ie pink inside). Chicken livers have a very mild flavour. Rare calf's liver is also mild

    If you really struggle with it, don't. Eat plenty of shellfish instead

    I can't even give you a good recommendation on how to cook it because I hate the flavor. I just cut it up into pieces and eat it raw. The texture's better, I can just slurp it down after I've chewed it sufficiently, and if I take a lick of the juice before I start eating it, I'm better prepared for the flavor and I can just pretend I'm eating a public drinking fountain.

    And I get to do that for about a half hour because it takes forever to chew. It truly is a not-fun thing to eat.
