BEEF MEAT, PORK MEAT, POULTRY

🇵🇭ALL ABOUT LIVER

PORK LIVER with POTATOES

Liver can be baked, boiled, broiled, fried, stir-fried, or eaten raw. I used to hate liver when I was a child, but my parents insisted for me to eat it because they said it’s rich in Iron. So, in order for them to make me eat liver, they made it taste like Bistek, local version of Beef Steak in the Philippines. They were successful. Now I understand why my daughter hated it also. Every time I cooked something with liver at home for sure it’s only for both of us, hubby and I.

BEEF LIVER WITH BALSAMIC VINEGAR

Liver is not for everyone’s taste, but this beef liver recipe is an unusual and enjoyable version.  The Traditional Balsamic Vinegar adds a deep sweet aroma to the dish.
This method of preparation eliminates the things that I find put me off about liver. I love beef liver than pork. Even though my 2 kids doesn’t like it, I used to cook it once a month for my hubby and for myself only.
