Choice of beverage is all-important. Remember - a light ale with fish and chips. Stout with liver and onions.

@lmur,
Use to love liver with bacon and onion. The fat content is too high, so my wife won't let me eat it any more.

@cicerone imposter,
Then I suggest changing your wife.

@lmur,
What? My wife takes good care of me. I had kidney failure, and she makes sure I get the necessary checkups and medications.
I use to be on dialysis, but no longer need it. My nephew is a critical care doctor, and even he said it's very rare to recover from total kidney failure. It's now working at over 30%.

In a wok (or a plow disc harrow, unused and seasoned if you've got one, seriously. They're used in Northern Mexico to cook these stir fries, discadas, in the open) stir fry strips of liver with chopped bacon, onions and Mexican chorizo. If you like it spicier, add some japĆ³n, or similar, chiles. It makes for good tacos.

@InfraBlue,
Ive got several old disc harrows lying about out in the fields. The kids used to take em apart an set em up around the field and shoot .22 shorts at em. They'd make a dull "bing" to let you know you hit the target.
sorta sounds like that hot fennel sausage, liver , and red pepperoncini and onion fry that is in the Sopranos Cook Book.

@cicerone imposter,
Just kidding - no offence intended. It's great that you've made a significant recovery from your serious illness.

@InfraBlue,
Well that sounds terrific, especially as a taco but also even sans tortilla.

I don't know if you're up for eating raw liver, but if you are, cut raw liver and then pour a variety of spices like cumin, coriander, black pepper, sumac and salt (or anything else you want) in a shallow bowl and then coat the liver chunks in all of them or just one of them. Then, wrap the coated liver in lettuce or flat bread with mint or arugula or onions or whatever you enjoy and eat them just like that. It's super yummy.

The white chunks are fat. Adding those just makes it yummier.

You might find it being raw off-putting but it's really very good, and the spices mask the taste, like with tofu.

@perennialloner,
A little off putting but maybe not. If I liked steak tartare I could adapt to your recipe, assuming the purveyor was one of the good butchers in this city.
