Now my hobby of hiking can be very strenuous. Yesterday I left later than I was supposed to because my son Troy was super distracting with his jokes. I didn’t get to the trail until like 10:30 and by then it was nuclear winter hot. Like in the 90s strong. I did a 3 mile hike and after I made it home I was drained. I could feel my body screaming to me “I NEED NUTRIENTS NOW!!! I was laid up weak and was brainstorming what do I need to feed myself? What is the most nutritionally dense food so I can recharge my body? Then it came to me… chicken livers!
Lol… now chicken livers are an acquired taste. People are never on the fence about them. It’s pretty much love or hate. Cut and dry. I love them personally and they are so good for you. I provided a link to show what I mean when I say they are a nutritional powerhouse!!!
With that said I didn’t deep fry them this time. Let’s Go!
1 lb of chicken livers
1 cup of cilantro chopped
1 small container of mushrooms
1/2 red bell pepper sliced
1 onion chopped
juice from 1 lime
3 cloves of garlic chopped
1/2 can of chicken broth
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of tumeric
1 tablespoon of grated ginger
2 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon of sugar
Rinse off the livers and make sure there is no gall bladder attached to them. It’s a green weird looking thing. If you see it cut it off and surrounding flesh thats appears green. If not it is going to taste horrible. Bile is inside of the gall bladder and tastes VERY bitter!
*FYI: If you have ever had a rough hangover and barfed until there is no end that vile taste is bile.
Season the liver with cumin, soy sauce, ginger, sugar, lime juice, tumeric, garlic and steak seasoning.
On medium heat with butter and a little sea salt, start your vegetables.
Then add the livers and the chicken broth. Stir and let simmer for 20 mins.
Add the cilantro. and stir. Give it about 5 more minutes. Once the livers are soft and can be split with just a spoon. Cut the larger ones in half for smaller bites.
Serve with Rice! Watch the magic of how your body loves all the nutrients. I literally felt revived. Energized!
