Tips for Buying and Cooking Liver

Buy paler liver for milder flavor. The darker the liver, the stronger the flavor.
"Calf liver" is milder, but more expensive than "beef liver".
Buy "de-veined" liver; this will reduce some of the chewiness.
If you can't find liver in your butcher's meat case, check the frozen section. Beef liver is often sold frozen.
You can marinate beef liver in milk for a milder flavor.
Cook liver until it is firm, but still slightly pink inside. Overcooked liver can be chewy.

Benefits of Liver

Liver is a nutrient powerhouse: a protein superfood.
It is packed with vitamins B12 and A.
Liver is high in iron, zinc, copper, and folic acid.
Liver is an excellent source of protein.
Eat liver to prevent or treat anemia.
Does liver sound gross? Remember, liver does not store toxins, but acts as a filter, and eating liver will benefit your own liver function.
