good liver recipes

my dad just gave me a huge deer liver from his friend's hunting trip. he said that i should soak it in milk to take the gamey flavor out of it, but i am lactose intolerant. is there a way to cook it so that i can choke it down? it doesn't have to taste great, but i NEED to eat it.

i just left the hospital after getting 2 blood tranfusions and the doc says i need to get my iron up fast. i read liver has the most iron out of all the other types of meats so i plan on eating it every day for a while. just need a way to make it palatable! thanks!

Adding lots of spices and seasonings can also help cover the taste. I did a batch with pesto, and my liver hating partner loved them!

You don't consume the milk, so it's unlikely you'll consume enough to cause any reaction to the lactose.

Ground up, mixed with other ground meat and made into meatballs.

Liver pat??. Add some lemon juice when you process the liver, the vitamin C will help the iron uptake.

Marinate it in anything acidic, and make sure to only fry it 1-2 minutes each side. The method for liver is as important as the recipe - it goes from done to overcooked quickly. Depending on how large it is you should be able to do a couple of recipes to experiment, which is cool.

This: http://panlasangpinoy.com/2009/08/11/lutong-bahay-atay-liver-steak-recipe/ was pretty delicious the other day.

Lucky you! I slice it really thin, fry it quickly (I used to fry it in lard, now I am doing it in bone broth) and then salt it. It tastes delicious!

You know what is funny about liver? It only tastes great when the animal was healthy. You can pretty much "smell" if the animal was fed grains, etc.

Terry Wahls warns - you have to make sure the liver is not well-cooked. She actually says, "Eat it as rare as you can stomach it." I don't like rare liver, it is disgusting, although I have learned to love rare meat. But I fry it so quickly, it is not overcooked, so that's fine.

This morning I fried up some liver in bacon grease. First I added diced onion and diced apple to the pan to soften, then added the liver, salt and pepper, and some dried thyme. I chopped up the liver as it cooked. When it was cooked as much as I wanted, I splashed a bit of apple cider vinegar onto the mix, stirred it, took it off the heat and served. It was tasty!

I chop it into little pieces and freeze, then take like pills, with a glass of water. Don't taste anything.
