I found all natural, hormone free beef liver for 99 cents a pound! That meant I got meat for two meals for just 58 cents. What a bargain!
If you have eaten much beef liver, you know the worst part is biting into one of those tough parts that just won't chew up. There is nothing like sitting in a restaurant chewing and chewing on the same bite of liver and wondering whether to take a deep breath and swallow the thing whole like a piece of gum or spit it out in your napkin.
The tough parts are the membranes surrounding the tubes that run through the liver. Some of them are large, some are small, but all are tough. I tried cutting them out with a knife. Impossible! Raw liver is too slippery. I gave up and switched to cooking chicken liver. It's much easier.
After I started the BTD, and realized how beneficial beef liver is to a Type O, I decided to give it another try. In the meantime my mother-in-law had given me a pair of kitchen scissors for Christmas. My mom never used scissors in the kitchen for anything except opening stubborn plastic packages, so this was new to me. I soon learned to use them for skinning poultry, trimming fat off meet, slicing pizza, and cutting dough. I used my Christmas scissors so much that they were often dirty when I wanted them, so I bought a second pair.
When I tried beef liver again, I went after the tubes with my scissors. The slippery raw liver was no match for kitchen scissors! While I was at it I cut the liver into pieces about 1 inch by 1 inch. That made it easy to cook in a skillet coated with cooking spray. The dog, who swallows everything whole anyway, thought the discarded tubes were wonderful.
Today I began by grilling an onion in a little butter in my skillet. When it was about half done I added the liver. I covered the skillet, reduced the heat, and went to get ready for school. When I got back it was all tender, tasty, and very beneficial.
