Learn How to Cook Beef Liver that Your Kids Will Love! And serve these tasty little “nuggets” with probiotic-rich fermented ketchup for the perfect nutrient-rich meal!
Liver That Actually Tastes Delicious!
Encouraging children to eat liver, especially beef liver, can sometimes be very challenging. But with this recipe, you’ll turn bite-sized pieces of liver into crunchy morsels that your kids will eat right up—one after the other!
Buttermilk to the Rescue
Yes, frying the beef liver helps tremendously, but sometimes even a good batter dip can’t hide the strong flavor of this organ meat. That’s where the buttermilk comes in.
With a good soak, the liver’s flavor will soften and be almost undetectable once batter dipped and fried. This is great news if you have kids who have turned their nose up to liver in the past. But that’s all about to change when you bring this liver to the table!
