    I have heard of those studies, but hadn't come full circle with the logic. I guess that explains my giant ears and general furry-ness...

    Liver fajitas are good. Fry up some red and yellow bell pepper, onion and use chiles in adobo sauce or chipotle chili salsa to flavor. Serve with all the taco fixin's: fresh limes, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, guacamole etc. I even served this to a squeamish person once and they thought it was great, after they got over laughing at having been so easily fooled.

    Great idea! I also like using a boatload of curry and cayanne pepper to just cover up the metallic liver taste. A couple articles I ran across had the good suggestion of blending it in a food processor and mixing it in with ground beef or some other tastier meat.

    I just ordered some beef liver from my local butcher -- he's going to grind 1/4 lb liver into 1 lb of grass-fed ground beef. I was going to make burgers with it. I'll also buy more liver and will sautee as recommended above. Fajitas sound good! I even have Paleo Wraps (coconut; water) that could work well with those...

    The way I'm dragging today, I should try the liver tomorrow!

    Definitely.

    I like beef liver for taste and nutrient density. I also feel that beef liver is the safest to eat as cows have amazing digestive systems.

    If you get a chance, try venison liver. Wild animal, organ meat, tastes *amazing*… pretty close to the perfect food.
