Peaches are in season! YAY!
I’m sure you could think of a million delicious ways you could put this sweet and juicy fruit to good use.
Most of you are probably thinking dessert, right? Like cakes, crumbles, muffins, ice cream…
Me? I chose to pair it with beef liver! And what a magical combination this was.
If you’ve never tried it, you should. Take my word for it. It’s DELICIOUS.
Especially with the little bit of a zing that the ginger brings and the sweet nutty flavor of the caramelized onions.
Oh, and a splash of white wine, too. Hey, white wine is paleo, right?
And hey, if you think you’re not a fan of liver, maybe you just need to give it another try…
I’d never been a fan myself (read: couldn’t STAND the stuff) but there are 2 things that I learned in the past few months which really played a big role in my recent change of heart.
One: Something really has to be said for marinating the pieces of meat in lemon juice or vinegar for at least 8 hours prior to cooking them. It really makes a big difference in both taste and texture.
Two: Liver HAS to be cooked just right. Cook it too little and its texture is so unpleasant, I won’t even try to describe it… Besides, if I did, there’s no way you’ll even be tempted to give it a try. Cook it too much and it becomes dry, chewy, grainy and leathery. Again, not something I would say is pleasant in the mouth. But cook it just right and it’s actually very tender and melt-in-your-mouth…
Oh, and three: Liver really is SUPER good for you and you should positively make it a part of your regular diet.
So if you need to coax your brain a little bit (or a lot), pairing it with a bunch of winning flavors and tasty ingredients like this should greatly help you in your quest!
I know it has helped me a lot!
Hey, I even managed to leave the bacon out this time!
And seriously, you can’t say that this dish doesn’t look super elegant and appetizing, now can you?
Just tell your brain that. No doubt it will believe you!
The Caramalized Onion and Peaches Compote is ready to accept the Liver
All good and ready to serve…
Now is that pretty or what?
Peaches will make anything look and taste good!
I chose to serve this with a side of Carrot Salad
Not just any Carrot Salad… a LOADED Carrot Salad!
