In our story that ran the last few days, the diligent mom tried to get her family to eat liver, as it is exceptionally nutrient dense. She was a tiger for her family’s health and so are you.
Don’t worry. I don’t like liver, either. If YOU like liver, YOU can stop reading now. (You know who you are.) This recipe is to make liver NOT taste like liver.
Serving this liver recipe got me, “You’re the best cook, honey.” And “Mmm. It’s good, Mom.” Yeah. For real. You must try this one.
There is absolutely no option in my family. It must be grass-fed liver. It tastes much milder. You should only be eating grass-fed beef anyway.
The Best Ever Liver (for liver non-lovers)
Approximately 3/4 pound of liver, chopped into 1/2 inch size pieces
3-5 tablespoons of bacon drippings
1 green pepper, medium-sized, coarsely chopped
1 onion, medium-sized, sliced
1-2 large cloves of pressed garlic
A generous 1 and 1/2 tablespoonful of cumin
1 teaspoonful salt
1/2 teaspoonful ground pepper
Heat bacon grease. Add green pepper and onions and sauté until golden brown. Add the pressed garlic and quickly sauté into the mixture. Add the liver and stir. Add the cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir until mixed. Cook until liver cooked through. Remove from heat and serve.
Family “gustar” report: “What is it mommy?” “It’s beef. Mexican beef.” “Oh.” And four of us ate it. One in our family of five was not present. All four who were present liked it. So 4/4.
Please, please, please go after your health. You deserve it! You can do it!
