I enjoy medium rare beef liver and onions, but I'm having a really tough time finding fresh beef liver where I live. All the shops have is frozen and that doesn't cut it.

However, I can easily find pork liver in the Asian grocery. How different does it taste? And it's PORK - can I eat it medium rare?

find a local processor slaughterhouse or even farmers that raise beef critters

stores can buy the fresh beef liver....but prefer the frozen presliced and prepackaged (no shrink)


id say you could cook this to 145f

I only buy liver to feed one person for one dinner. To ask a store to order it for that veryeoccasional and small purchase is unreasonable. So is driving out to the country to visit a slaughterhouse. I've searched and used my local CD forum to find that the nearest shop that sells it fresh is 32 miles away.

Does the pork liver taste different?

Liverwurst is ground pork liver. You can find it in any supermarket and try it.

I am not a liver lover.


My dad stated there was a big difference and he only wanted pork liver.
He stated beef liver tasted "sweet" to him and thus he wouldn't eat beef liver.
