Guys, thank you. Outstanding dinner tonight. Beef liver at $3.69 per lb from my local supermarket. Dusted with paprika, salt and pepper, seared: crispy outside with a pink, rare center. Served with a butter and pomegranate balsamico reduction and braised radishes. 

I have two more big slices of the stuff, so this probably cost about $1.20 for dinner. But the flavor is strong; you have to like it.

Not sure I'd go there, but if you're happy, I'm happy.   

As I wrote, it's in the sourcing and the butchering.   Gotta be young and pink, gotta be butchered into very thick slices.   Our butcher-boys don't seem to get this so I'm guessing that the only way to acquire it is to buy a whole liver and have a dinner party.   It would certainly work with my group, maybe not yours.

Mm, but I am very consciously offering beef (or ox) liver there, not calf’s liver which is so different. Like, check the price.

This is food I ate when I was broke, I am just much better at cooking it than when I was at college.

Got it.   And as I preach, there is no bad food, only bad cooks.   So KUDUS to you!

Agree with Wilf and Orik.

Have you ever had properly sourced,  butchered and sautéed foie de veau, 3cm thick, crusted but rosy rare?   Even liver-hating husband was a roll-over convert.

Am I the only one who makes fegato alla veneziana?  Try getting the liver cut properly for that!  I've instructed a couple of the crew (can't call them "butchers") at Eataly, because I like the calf's liver there.

I love mine!

 

Yes, I was thinking of that. I have made it, and of course you wouldn’t dream of making it with beef liver. I cut it myself and indeed cutting liver small is not easy.

Thinking of recipes that call for finely diced liver. I have sharp knives, but wow. Hard work.
