I pride myself on trying any food once. For example, I enjoy eating things like tripe and chicken feet. I also love pâté, so I should also, also love liver and onions…but no I couldn’t do it. Right from the start of making Chester J. Lampwick’s Liver and Onions, I knew I couldn’t do it. From the smell of the liver fresh out of the packaging, to the smell as it was cooking, I knew this was going to be a disaster. Anyway, I still managed to make it so here we go!
- Beef broth
- Salt and pepper
Place flour, salt, and pepper in a bowl and set aside. Slice the onion into thin stripes. Next, slice the liver into smaller pieces and dredge the liver with the flour. Heat a large skillet with oil to medium-high heat. Cook the onions until translucent. Add the liver on top of the onions and add beef broth to simmer. Cover and simmer for several minutes and serve.
As far as foods you eat when celebrating this is going to rank very low on my list. That metallic taste that you only get from something like liver, not good. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that this is a food enjoyed by the Flanders family:
Rod: Oh boy, liver!
Todd: Iron helps us play.
– Lisa’s First Word (The Simpsons Season 4 – Episode 10)
I’m sure iron does help you play Todd, but first you have to physically chew and swallow liver. I’d rather be all tired and hungry while playing then ever prepare, cook, and eat liver and onions again.
