its mostly older folks that buy liver in these parts, along with tripe, soup bones, boudin, creton, tortierre pies
and stew meat

im with naturen, my tastes have fluctuated, thru the years, overall not a big fan,,, the last time i had liver, was eating some raw after field-dressing a deer. a few years ago on a dare.


i use to have customers asking me to grind liver for pate'
what a soppy mess that was

I can't believe that no one has mentioned duck liver (i.e., foie gras). Absolutely amazing.

As for other types of liver? It never really appealed too much to me, but I do enjoy various types of pate. I have wanted to try fried chicken livers, but haven't had an opportunity to do so.

As far as it being unhealthy...proponents of the paleo diet generally believe that organ meats are definitely quite healthy.

I'm over 50 and have always loved liver, however it has to be lambs liver not beef. Lambs liver has a finer texture and a better taste.
Cooked with onions and served with mashed potatoes and gravy ... yummm !

I tried liver for the first time as part of a mixed grill at a pub restaurant a few miles down the road. The meal in general was divine, one of the best I've eaten in my life. The liver, well, I was pleasantly surprised in general. Wouldn't say I love it, but I don't dislike it, I would eat it again.

Brown in a hot pan
Place in casserole dish layered with bacon and onions

The mixed-grill concept isn't well-known here. I love a mixed-grill with meats, sausages, tomatoes, onions...

You better be careful ordering that here - you most-likely won't be served the liver . It sounds a lot like lamb fries .

He'd heat up the black cast iron pan as hot as he could get it....put a little fat in the pan....and then drop that poor unsuspecting liver on the hot pan and cook the bejesus out of it. I can still visualize that liver contracting in the pan. When Dad served it.....it was hard on the outside and dry through and through.

It wasn't until I was grown I found out how delicious liver could be and that cooking shouldn't be like a scene from the exorcist. I like my liver cooked on low heat......so it retains its moist tender lusciousness.

I think liver should only be cooked by people who like it.....other wise it gets ruined.
I'd agree with you. Liver doesn't take long at all to cook, especially thin slices, and I've inadvertently overcooked calf's liver, not meaning to at all, just overestimating the length of time it needed to get done. I like it too, and it's a shame to ruin liver by overcooking it. Eating overcooked liver is a little like trying to eat a leather wallet.
