I grew up eating beef liver smothered in sautéed onions and Bev did not – I still like the dish, as most of you probably do, and she absolutely does not. So when I want it, I either order at a restaurant or fix it for myself at home - she won't even fix it for me. Today’s project was freezer reorganization and I discovered several packages that need to be used soon, so I decided to start today.
My mother always prepared liver by dredging it in flour and frying in a skillet, but during one of my restaurant trips, I was served the liver grilled and decided I liked it. I prepared it by just giving it a light coat of Billy Bones Beefmaster BBQ rub and grilling it quickly over high heat on the gas grill. As you can see, I added some cheddar cheese to one piece. I sautéed a sliced medium onion in a little butter and bacon grease.
I had planned to sprinkle on some diced fried bacon before the onions, but it was already gone, so it was just the liver and onions. Here are a few pics that I'm confident even you none liver lovers will enjoy :).
Even had a few small pieces that the dogs really enjoyed.
I liked the BBQ rub on it and think I would like a different cheese, but the cheddar didn't work as well as I'd hoped. While I wouldn't want to eat it every day, I enjoyed my 2-3 times a year meal.
