liver - who eats this ?

Which animal ? And in which form?

Seems like finding a reputable company selling desiccated beef liver tabs in the UK is a task in itself since H&B stopped stocking them.

I'm ideally looking for some alternatives.

    Liver needs to be cooked right. It needs to be cooked like fillet steak, seared but still pink. Not like ghandis flip flop!

    Calves liver is best, followed by lambs liver.

    Chicken liver peri peri with tomatoes and onions is one of my favourites!

    Liver and bacon with balasamic is also fantastic combo

    liver or kidneys or any offal really can be soaked in milk for half an hour before which draws out the strong flavour and really makes it completely different.

    Ffs Ras, can’t you get someone to run your business and you open a venison and game meat by mail business?

    Sadly not the government make it near impossible to run small business in meat processing you need lots of equipment, premises and of course permits etc which is a shame. I can sell directly game dealers but they then obviously break the carcass down and make the margin.

    Love liver, just bought a kilo from the butcher in Cardiff market.
     
    I usually go for ox liver (why do they always label it ox liver rather than beef liver?) due to it being more meaty and it has lower iron content so you can eat more of eat without any iron toxicity issues (well, to a reasonable quantity anyway).
     
    Awesome with some smoked paprika and onions...

    Organ meat is supposed to be really good for you (insert your own jokes). I bought ox kidney and heart the other night and fried it up. Wasn’t too bad but think of eating heart put me off it, most went in the bin.

    Lamb liver is more zingy I find, I prefer ox liver
     
    Lightly pan fried with mash potatoes and streamed garden veg
     
    The vitamin A is really high in liver though so I have it once a week 300g
     
    Its cheap as hell as well £2 a kilo for tap dancing, grass fed rare breed

    I used to hate it as a kid but rather like it now as change from typical flesh cuts. Pork, beef, chicken I've had them all, pork and beef are good grilled or fried but it is important to get the cooking time just right. Chicken livers work well in a stew or in thick tomato sauce.
     
    Also used to eat heart but haven't had it in a long time, don't even know where I could find it to be honest.

    Love it , preferably lambs liver. Liver, bacon,  onions, mushrooms and garlic in the slow cooker . Big dollop of mashed taties .

    Absolutely! although one day I ordered some in a roadside cafe and it came with chips as default. Not being one to complain I just got on with it, and I have to say it was delicious.

    My doctor told me Whiskey eats liver and that I should cut back. On the Whiskey that is.

    Love calf's liver and pates made from liver. I'm a big fan of offal and cheap cuts of meat!
