Liver Steak

Following the post about Menudo is another dish with liver....

I grew up not liking liver (big chunks that is). Since Menudo has liver on it, it wasn't always a favorite dish of mine...I am not fond of picking out the liver and putting them on the side of my plate. Ironically, liver spread, particularly Reno brand is my favorite sandwich spread. =)

The reason why I started cooking liver dishes is so my sickly son could benefit from the iron it richly contains.

To prepare this dish, I marinate the liver overnight so the flavor can be absorbed well. Though the preparation takes a day, cooking time is short.


Liver, cut into thin strips
soy sauce
lemon juice
onion, cut into rings

How to:

1. In a small container, combine soy sauce enough to marinate the liver, add lemon juice (according to taste) and season with pepper. Keep refrigerated until you want to cook them and make sure each strip is soaked with the mixture.

2. (When you decide to cook the liver), heat a little oil in a deep pan, cut onions into rings leaving a few to be chopped. Saute the smaller pieces of onion on oil.

3. When onion turns transparent, drop in the liver strips one by one. Cook one side for a few minutes then turn.

4. Add the onion rings and mix them well with the liver.

5. Pour the soy sauce mixture and cover, turn off stove but leave the pan on stove to soften the onions.

6. Best served with rice... (yet I forgot to include rice)

I have never cooked liver, nobody will eat it in my house except me.:)

My Mom used to forced us kids to eat liver for the same reason you have... my older sister was sickly then.

The dish looks delicious specially with the onions.

i don't know why but I don't like liver. I tried eating it several times but I can't seem to get around the texture. I will try once more kasi natatakam ako sa photos mo. :-)
