You know what gets a bad reputation? As if you didn’t guess by the title of the recipe, but it’s beef liver. There was a time when it was a popular protein that you could find nearly everywhere. Nowadays it is considered a meal for the older generation. However, between the beautiful flavors and plentiful health benefits, it is time to make beef liver popular again.

To take this unusual ingredient into a new generation, we need to add our own spin to it. This recipe is simple to make, but the Asian fusion will give you something to get excited about. Try this Keto sliced beef liver with Asian dip, and you are going to wonder why you have been avoiding liver this whole time.

The Benefits of Organ Meats

Something happened in Western culture where organ meats like kidneys, tripe, and liver became undesirable. In a modern world where healthy foods have become more essential than ever, it is strange that we are not consuming these ingredients more often.

Liver, for example, has a plethora of nutrients and vitamins that are great for our bodies. It can be beneficial for heart health, vision, and the immune system. Though, of all the organ meats, the liver has the highest carbs, so don’t fall in love with it too much.

Cooking With Beef Liver

There are many ways to cook up beef liver. The most common, and the one you’ve probably heard of most is liver and onions. Traditionally that dish would call for you to drench the sliced liver in flour and fry it in a pan. Feel free to try this with almond flour.

The recipe we have provided for you here simply boils the liver which helps to keep the moisture. However, you may choose to grill the liver instead which could help to keep the nutrients.

The Many Ways to Serve Beef Liver

The simple recipe below only includes a delicious Asian-inspired sauce for you to dip and taste the liver as it is. However, there are many ways that you can serve this wonderful protein.

Try it with many Keto-friendly sauces, preferably something with a bit of acid to cut the richness. You can also serve it traditionally with fried onions. Liver is an excellent protein on its own and can be served with many vegetables and side dishes. There are many options to eat this great ingredient.
