Has anyone made beef liver. I saw some in the supermarket, and ended up frying it.

The taste was awesome, really sweet. The only problem was that I couldn't eat the whole thing so the leftovers went in the fridge.

I imagine it would go good with mashed potatoes and gravy.

It goes great with Onions or Chives...maybe even Garlic. It is definitely a comfort food that is great with potatoes. I don't cook it too often, but it is one of my Mom's favorites.

I like liver. Lamb liver is even better than beef liver. I serve liver the way my husband likes it - with fried onions and mushrooms, and fried potatoes.

Love liver. Lamb, veal, beef, pork, goose, even chicken... pan fried with onions and mushrooms, with gravy or not. With apples - oh, delicious!! With sour cream gravy, mustard gravy or tomato sauce. On the top of salad. Wrapped in bacon. Grilled. Liver shishkabobs! Liver pate.
I think I know many differed dishes made with liver.
So nutritious. Rich in Vit.B, and foliates -these vitamins reduce the levels of homocysteine in the blood and that results in improving cardiovascular health and decreasing your risk of having a heart attack;low in calories and fat ( well, high in cholesterol, sadly)

You can never beat classic comfort food

I start out by soaking the liver in buttermilk, then frying
some bacon while cutting up a large onion.

Set the bacon aside and fry the onions until they turn color
pat dry the liver and drop into a plastic bag with flour, shake
off excess and place in pan with hot bacon grease.

Fry both sides until lightly brown and remove and place
on paper towels. Get a 13X9 glass dish and put ½
the onions on the bottom add liver then bacon
finishing off with the other ½ of the onions.
cover with plastic wrap and place in the microwave for 10min
@ 50% power let it sit in the microwave for 3min before serving

Take about 4-6 pieces of bacon and fry them slowly to render out the fat. Set aside the bacon. Thinly slice 2 big onions (they will cook way down) and carmelize over medium-med/low in the bacon fat, stirring frequently, until uniformly brown. This is a slow process. It takes about an hour.
In the mean time, dredge the slices of liver in flour, salt and pepper. when the onions are done, remove them from the pan and add more oil to coat. Fry the liver for a few minutes on each side until lightly browned. Liver should still be a little pink inside. Place the onions, liver and bacon on a serving dish and keep in a warm oven until all the liver is cooked.

They don't make a gun big enough to point at my head and make me eat liver.

If you think about it, one of the liver's prime functions is to remove bad stuff from the blood stream. Why would anyone want to eat the biologic equivalent of a lint screen? Yick! (Besides, it's packed with saturated fats.)

All that said, find your happiness where you can. If you enjoy it, enjoy it! Doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

Buon appettito.

I will definately try the lamb liver. I was really surprised with how tasty it was.

Maybe I can get some that was organically raised. Normally I don't care but the liver is the organ that filters all the toxins, and if the animal has been given lots of steroids I imagine this could be bad.
