Beef liver safe for regular diet?

  1. Beef liver safe for regular diet?


    Call me gross, but if you know how to cook it right, liver and onion's ain't half bad. To me it's a poor man's steak.

    Anyhow, I only allow myself to eat it a few times out of the year because of all the cholesterol, etc. in it.

    But I was thinking about it yesterday. It's cheap. It's a great source of B vitamins and Iron. It's a good source of quality protein.

    So is beef liver really that bad, or could it be something I could eat a few times per week?

  2. I'd keep it to at most once a week because of the cholesteral.

    But I love liver and onions myself...great food.

  3. I agree I find it a good source of nutrients and I myself indulge in. I eat it like I do with seafood, only 1 time each week.

    Yeah, I was thinking I'd have it only once or twice per week. It's got a lot of cholesterol, but so do eggs. Since it seems that the cholesterol in eggs doesn't seem to have as harsh effect on lipids as previously thought, it got me wondering about my good friend beef liver.
