I think liver is just like Marmite 🙂 You either love it or you hate it 🙂 But I like it and in particular this recipe for Liver with onions Portuguese style…
I was always told that liver is full of vitamins, proteins and more importantly, iron. And that is such a good kind of meat to eat…I understand that a lot of people out there don’t like it, because of the strong taste or even because of the texture. One of the tricks that can be used to remove some of the strong flavour and acidity is to marinate the liver in milk. Then remove it from the milk and season with your choice of ingredients. But never use vinegar or lemon as this will make the meat become tough. The thin skin covering the meat is also responsible for making it tough. So the best way is to remove the membrane, being careful not to break the meat. Always pull it back and never up.
I remember my mum cooking liver since forever and I really like it… this recipe is exactly the way my mum does it. It’s one of the most traditional ways to cook liver back home. So I decided to call it Liver with onions Portuguese Style. It’s similar to liver Milanese but not exactly the same 🙂 I have several other recipes using liver but lets start with my favourite 🙂
