With all the buzz about liver that’s been going on in the paleosphere since AHS12, I thought I at least had to give it a chance…
Growing up we never had liver in our house, and my only memory of it is when I as a kid visited a friend, who’s mother had a whole liver baking in the oven…I can still remember how awfully it smelled.
With that background, I can’t say I’ve ever had the urge to try it out…until now.
So, with the lady out of town for a week I thought it’s now or never (she has made it very clear she would not eat it even if she had a gun to her head…).
Said and done…I did some research, picked ideas from here and there, and came up with below recipe.
Eager to get started I took the liver I had purchased out from the fridge and got my first impression…the raw liver smelled like death itself!
My second impression I got after trimming and slicing it up…my kitchen literally looked like a crime scene from a Dexter episode!
However…I kept cooking it, determined to try this bad boy out, and was actually quite impressed with how tasty it looked when done!
Then I tasted it and got my third impression…
I can’t say that I particularly like the taste of liver, but in a weird way I don’t really mind it either (for sure though…it’s far, far, far, from the top of my culinary favorites list…).
But, my main issue with it is…it’s like there’s just something in my sub conscious mind that makes me having a really hard time eating it. :(
Anyway, I finished the serving and I’m glad I did try it out…one experience richer and I can now have an honest opinion about it…but frankly, I doubt I’ll ever do it again.
Don’t get me wrong…good quality liver is probably one of the healthiest things you can eat, and there is nothing wrong with this recipe at all(!).
It’s just me who don’t really appreciate the taste of liver + my mind playing tricks on me (and food just being healthy is not good enough for me, it should be a pleasant experience eating it too!).
Nevertheless, despite my terrible way of selling in this liver recipe, I’m fully confident that any given liver lover will appreciate it. ;)
Serve and….enjoy (if you like liver that is)! ;)
(I served this with a simple salad and some red onion confit as a side dish…)
