Liver is arguably the most nutrient-rich "superfood" of them all! Consider that liver provides 10-100 times the nutrients found in beef muscle cuts, and you'll understand why liver is so popular with health and fitness devotees. Just a small amount of liver is rich in high-quality protein, low in calories, and delivers well over 100% of the recommended daily intake of essential vitamins and minerals, surpassing virtually any fruit or vegetable considered "superfoods." (Fruits and vegetables are rich in phytonutrients not found in meat, so enjoy them too!) When Alex was in grad school at the University of Washington, he spent every free weekend rock climbing in the famed Icicle Creek area. His favorite way to end a day on the rocks was at one of the many German restaurants in nearby Leavenworth WA with a big plate of liver and onions. Those german chefs knew that the secret to great-tasting liver was to soak it in milk, cook it quickly but gently until it was tender and creamy, and smother it in sweet onions. Looking for true decadence? Spoon sour cream into your skillet of liver and onions for the last minute of cooking to deglaze it, and make a dreamy sauce that perfectly complements the complex favors of meat and vegetable.
