Liver: The Student's Friend

Writing about web page http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-001-02s03lp.html

I wish to write about something close to all our hearts…

I have just finished a delightful meal which was filling, tasty, extremely nutritious, very cheap and easy to cook, yet I'd bet that hardly any of the students here eat it regularly, and there's probably a significant proportion who've never had it.

Liver. It's wonderful. I urge you all to try it.

I had a few slices of lamb's liver, fried with onions and bacon, and supplemented with a dash of red wine. It was gorgeous, and more people should eat it.

Why? Well, it's yummy, for a start. Some people might find it an acquired taste, but I believe it's worth persevering. It's full of vitamins (specifically A and some Bs) and it's a great source of iron. It's extremely cheap. Lamb's liver from Tesco is £2.29/kg, whereas the bog-standard bacon I had with it was £5.92/kg. Liver's cheaper than standard sausages, too. It's terribly simple to cook – all I did was chop it and fry it, and Bob's your uncle.

So, impoverished students looking for cheap food – forget your value products and beans and spaghetti hoops – eat liver!

  1. Spaghetti has an "h" in it. Did you have Chianti with the liver? Or should that be Valpolicella?

  2. I agree a lot of people have a hang up about it. I didn't really eat it until my mum made a lovely liver curry dish as a starter to the indian she was cooking. It was really tasty and I shall be trying more such dishes in future

    I've tried it a couple of times but I really can't stand it. At first I had a problem with the fact that it was offal, but I thought I would at least give it a go as it actually smells pretty good when you fry it with onions, but it really isn't nice. I can't deal with kidneys in Steak and Kidney pudding either – steak pie all the way for me!!

    Just got back from holiday in Turkey – where we enjoyed a lovely liver salad (cold but cooked). Made a change from aubergines.
