What’s wrong with liver?

Seriously, Jimmie: you’re missing out. My mom used to cut up some liver, bread it, then bake until cooked; end result was essentially liver [Scottish clan prefix]nuggets, which we ate cheerfully, and with ketchup.

I should get that recipe, although regular liver’s good, too.

PS: Corned beef and cabbage, on the other hand… don’t look at me like that. Traditional Irish cooking is one of the reasons behind the Irish diaspora.

    Liver- the bodies oil filter.
    That is all, carry on.

    My mom did something similar with liver….breaded it and cooked in a skillet. It was in fact excellent with ketchup – but then everything was when I was that age.

    Being Irish however I will defend corned beef & cabbage. If it’s done right it is magnificent stuff, but it can easily turn out like sandpaper. Luckily my mother rarely cooked it wrong. I never cared for the cabbage, myself, but will eat the beef & boiled potatoes happily. Mom also put turnips in the pot, and if you MUST eat a turnip, you might as well eat one that’s been cooked all day with meat 🙂

    Well, it depends on what animal the liver came from, but for beef liver I usually slice it into strips, soak it in milk for a few hours, drain off the milk, bread it, and either pan or deep fry it, and eat it with cream gravy.

    My arteries harden just thinking about it, but it is tasty.

    Liver is proof that Satan hates us and wants us to be unhappy.

    Yeah, I grew up in the south and am the only mem

  • physics geek says:

    Gah. Reboot. Anyway, I’m the only member of my family who absolutely loathes liver. You can hide it, you can disguise, but it still tastes awful.

  • […] I’d find it difficult to come up with a rational counter-argument.Lastly, a word for my friend Moe. If given the choice, I’d take corned beef and cabbage over fried liver chunks any day of the […]
