    Default beef liver

    so i bought some beef liver today, because i was at a restaurant the other day while someone else ordered liver and onions, and it smelled really good. i have never cooked beef liver (i bought chicken livers and cooked those for my dog, and i ate a few of them too after i took a nibble of one and discovered they had basically the taste and texture of hard boiled egg yolks). After looking up a few recipes online, i have found that most people suggest buying calf liver instead, because beef liver's flavor is more intense.
    Anyway, as unpopular as liver seems, i was wondering if there were at least of a few of you who know a good way to prepare it.
    One way i read that i am considering is frying it with onions and jalapenos, but i've read other recipes that say to soak the liver in milk for at least an hour first.
    Does anyone have any insight into this? Or has buying beef liver instead of calf liver been too poor and ill-informed of a choice on my part?

    I love beef liver especially if from grass fed organic beef. Yes soaking it in milk is good. It improves the texture

    so i made it, and it turned out pretty good, i think.

    i ended up soaking it in milk in the fridge for about 1 1/2 hours. then i dried it and coated it in a little bit of corn masa (i didn't have any flour) and sprinkled it with black pepper and threw it in a hot pan with bacon grease. then i threw in a large sliced onion and a couple of jalapeno chiles cut into strips. i cooked it about 10 minutes or so with a lid on a lower heat.

    i was a little nervous about it because i had never eaten beef liver, and i had never prepared it before. I must say though, it turned out better than i had hoped.

    i'd like to try it on the grill. do just season it before you put it on, or how do you prepare it?

    You can put some seasoning if you want or marinade it.... but what I did is i just put some salt on it.. and make sauce for it.. try to marinade it first.... it will be much perfect with sauce..

    I'm recalling my memories of my childhood. Once I visited South Asia (Sri Lanka). There was a friend of my
    father. They cook a beef liver recipe at dinner and the taste was so much amazing. I couldn't get that
    recipe again.
    Still missing.
