Beef Liver Cutlet

Even though you do not like the typical liver and onion thingy, you will love this. This is wonderfully tasty recipe. (There are pictures of raw liver following. You might think it’s a kind of gross.)

Liver is very powerful healthy food filled with essential vitamins such as vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C and other nutrients including folic acid, copper, iron. Levier is especially good if you have anemia.

What you need;

Fresh beef liver, preferably calf’s. 1 lbs
Egg 1
Flour 1 cup
Bread crumbs 1-2 cups
Salt and pepper
Frying oil

I strongly recommend not to use frozen liver. Go to a good local meat shop and purchase fresh, good quality liver. Ask for slicing it for steak.

Probably you can find Japanese styled bread crumbs called Panko in a regular super market but any bread crumbs will work well.

How to cook;
1) Cut the liver into about 2 inches squares, lightly season them with salt and pepper.

2) Beat an egg in a medium sized bowl and add 2 tbs of water or milk. Mix well.

3) First, coat them with flour lightly. Then dip the floured liver piece in the egg mixture and roll it in bread crumbs. Coat well.

4) Heat frying oil in a large pan and fry for 5-7 minutes.

Liver can be cooked quicker than other meat such as chicken or pork.

Cut a piece and check it. If not bloody, it is done. Do not over cook.

Then enjoy it with your favorite sauce such as mayo, ketchup, or mayo-ketuchup mixture, tartar sauce, soy sauce or simply with salt and lemon.

I have the recipe in Japanese, too.
