•Packed with minerals and vitamins, beef liver is perhaps the most nutritious and healthy meat you can eat.
•If you do not like your liver chewy, with a sharp knife, cut out the thin membrane that coats your liver.
Preparing beef liver is very easy. With just a few ingredients from your kitchen shelf, your dish will be ready for serving.
The trick is not to over or undercook, otherwise, you will lose the texture that makes the meat special.
Remember to soak the liver in milk after rinsing in water then refrigerate it at least 1 hour before cooking, to remove the bitter taste and tenderize the beef.
If you do not like milk, you can soak it in apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
The acidity in the milk also helps improve the texture and taste. If you do not like your liver chewy, with a sharp knife, cut out the thin membrane that coats your liver.
Eating undercooked liver leaves you at risk of food poisoning caused by hepatitis E virus, salmonella, Campylobacter, or other bacteria.
