We love Beef liver, but don't have it that often, and usually when I do, I always forget to take pictures, this time I REMEMBERED. I got it on sale only $1.78 for 4 pieces of liver. Great deal. I served it with rice, and cooked grilled onions to go with it, it was outstanding, and so tender and delicious. Just two spices for seasoning was all it needed. It was delicious, and made an impressive platter when I brought it to the dinner table. Great source of Iron and Protein. QUICK-SIMPLE & EASY TO PREPARE, NOT TO MENTION ECONOMICAL.
