Jamie says: Are you an adventurous eater? I sure was the other night! I mean, if you took a poll of how many people ate buffalo and liver for dinner, you could probably count the number of people on your hands. My friend Richard and I cooked up some Liver ‘n’ onions & Buffalo using my friend Sam’s recipe as a starting point. If you ever get the opportunity to eat buffalo and/or liver, give it a try. You might surprise yourself and really enjoy it like I did.
Liver ‘n’ Onions & Buffalo
- 1 medium sweet onion
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- 1/2 lb buffalo liver
- 1 1/2 lbs grass-fed buffalo
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1 organic gala apple
- Thinly slice onion. Add canola oil to a large non-stick saute pan over medium heat. Cook onions for about 20 minutes or until soft.
- Meanwhile, chop liver and buffalo. Add to the saute pan with the onions after the onions have cooked for 20 minutes and continue to cook for about 15 minutes, or until meat is cooked throughout, stirring occasionally. Drain liquid.
- Meanwhile, core and chop an apple into small pieces. Add apple to the dish during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Serves: 2 hungry people. Enjoy!
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it was really good! I thought I’d only have a bite of liver, but we ended up finishing the whole dish. Liver is dry and slightly crumbles in the mouth. I liked the sweetness the apple added to the dish.
- Nutrition note: Looking to get a whopping dose of nutrients? Eat some liver. Liver is one of the most nutrient-rich foods available. It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals, such as the fat soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D,E, and K).
