Do you eat fried liver and onions and are they good for us?

Asked by Aster (19949points) January 10th, 2015

I’d vomit at even the odor of them . How do you feel? Think they’re yummy?

Even when I ate meat, I did not eat organ meat.

I hate the taste and texture of fried liver.
It is one of the worst things in the entire universe.

Sauted onions are delicious and nutritious. Liver is the organ that detoxifies…I wouldn’t eat it.

Oh gawd, the most awful thing to put on your plate.

We used to be told that liver is a great source of iron, and it is, but it is also packed full of cholesterol and what ever chemical crap is in the cow’s body.

I think liver is usually overcooked, it only needs quick frying. Liver and bacon is a great combination although I wouldn’t have agreed when I was a child.

I think it is a placebo effect.

As @Adagio says, liver has to be cooked properly. Most people overcook it. I grew up eating it and still enjoy it as an occasional meal. Nobody else in my family does so it’s a bit of a rarity.

I love chicken livers. Since the vast majority of chickens are killed and sold at such young ages, there’s obviously less toxicity buildup.

I will very occasionally eat regular liver if I’m in a restaurant which does a good job and knows how to cook it. However, thats extremely infrequent since most places cook it way too long so it’s more like shoe leather. Yuck.

@Buttonstc, there is one restaurant in the city that cooks liver perfectly. If we go there for dinner, I always have that. I can’t remember seeing it on another menu over here. Australians seem to really dislike offal.
