Some Cooking Help!

July 16, 2014

Chicken liver. It’s an incredibly healthy food but I just can’t figure out how to make it taste good.  

3.5 ounces of the stuff is only 174 calories with 26 grams of protein and a whopping 71% of your required daily iron. Both vitamins A and B-12 are both well over 200% and copper and zinc are both over 50% as well. The one caveat is the cholesterol level per serving which is fairly high and wouldn’t be good for those with heart disease. Overall it’s a nutritional powerhouse and something I should include in my diet since I battle low iron levels.

All that being said, this stuff tastes like despair and the tears of kittens. I know it’s good for me, I’ve tried to cook it and it’s just one big fail. I’ve pan-fried them with onion and garlic along with bok choy and pepper. I’ve tried using sweet chili Thai sauce. Ian’s tried them with a spicy curry paste. NOTHING makes these things edible. I’m at the point of trying to batter and fry them but then I figure what’s the point? I might as well smother them in cheese and call it a day.  

On the bright side, Riley really enjoys them. Good thing too because he ends up eating our leftovers.

Any help out there? Is it possible to actually enjoy these things?
