Taco Rice

Taco_Rice_2.jpg

My family really enjoys Cheeseburger Rice, but sometimes it’s nice to switch things up and make this Taco Rice. One nice thing about getting your taco fix this way is that you don’t have to fill taco shells or wraps. It’s simply easier to have everything already mixed together, especially if you are feeding small […]

Ground_Beef_Stew2.jpg

Ground beef stew is simply a variation of beef stew, and like beef stew, you can vary it to use whatever vegetables you like or have on hand. This version is one that my family enjoys and that I like to make often. Since I eat low carb, I usually make the stew without any […]

Ground Beef and Green Beans (Slow Cooker)

Ground Beef and Green Beans

Recently I was in the mood for something similar to my slow cooker beef and green beans recipe, but I had ground beef to use instead of a chuck roast.  I also didn’t want it to be as saucy, and since my husband was out of town, it was going to include mushrooms. I used […]

Last week I shared a homemade enchilada sauce recipe with you, and here is one way you can use it.  This enchilada pie is layered with corn tortillas, refried beans, and sauce.  Cheese would be a welcome addition, if you eat dairy.  I only eat goat cheese, and so I added a little to the […]

Liver and Onions

Liver and Onions

As I mentioned the other day, I’ve been eating a high protein diet and enjoying increased energy without food cravings.  Liver is a food that is recommended for protein type people because it is high in purines.

The problem is that I don’t like liver.  I don’t hate it, but I don’t like it.  The main problem I have with it is the texture, but I’m not thrilled with the taste either.

In addition, I received 10 pounds of liver when I bought some grass fed beef a few months ago.  I have given some to the dogs, but I figured that since I have so much and it’s good for me, I ought to give it a try.

Two things help me with the flavor/texture problem.  The flavor is improved by adding other flavors to it.  In this recipe, I combined it with onions, which is classic, but I also added bacon and apple.

The texture problem seems to be best solved by cutting the liver in small pieces and eating it with other foods that help hide the texture.  In particular, the apple seemed to help with this.

I can’t lie and say that I love this recipe because I still don’t love liver, but it is a preferable way to eat it.  I’d also love to hear your ideas.

How do you like to eat liver?

Liver and Onions

Ingredients
  • 1 pound beef liver
  • 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium apple (I used Fuji), peeled and cut into chunks
  • 6 strips bacon
  • [url href="http://glutenfreehomemaker.com/2011/09/onion-and-garlic-pepper/"]onion and garlic pepper[/url]
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, fry the bacon until crisp. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Break into pieces.
  2. Drain most of the bacon grease, leaving enough to sauté the onions. Add more as needed for the apples and liver in the following steps or use your oil of choice.
  3. Add the onion slices to the skillet and sauté until tender.
  4. Add the apple chunks to the skillet and sauté just until heated through.
  5. Remove the onions and apples to a dish.
  6. Slice the beef liver into thin slices or pieces. Sprinkle with onion and garlic pepper. Add to the skillet and quickly cook on medium high heat.
  7. Remove from heat. Return the onions, apples, and bacon pieces to the skillet. Toss to combine.
