Iron and Protein Boost: Liver with Bacon & Onions!

By PVM | Art of Happiness | 10 Jul 2020

I covered the advantages of adding liver to your diet in my previous post when I cooked Thai Pork Liver so now I will add just a quick resume of why you should consider liver based recipes 

  • Liver is a high-quality protein source and high in Iron. Protein is absolutely vital for our body, building block of muscle, as well as being key to post-workout repair while the Iron found in livers is easy to digest, helping the body to create red blood cells and keeps your blood healthy.
  • Increasing your iron intake will help you to combat fatigue and to metabolize proteins. Vitamin A is also an important catalyst for many biochemical processes in the body and is absolutely essential for nutrient assimilation, bone development and fertility therefore is important to consume vitamin A from whole foods like liver, which offer a balanced nutrient profile and are safe, prepared as nature intended. 
  • Gram for gram, liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods available to us. It contains a large amount of high-quality protein, an easily absorbed form of iron, all of the B vitamins, including B12, and folic acid, balanced quantities of vitamin A, many trace elements and minerals including copper, zinc, chromium, phosphorous and selenium, essential fatty acids EPA, DHA and AA, as well as the powerful antioxidant CoQ10.

Liver with Bacon & Onions

A good plate of liver and bacon has always been one of our favourite meals, a dish which will remind me of my childhood. Only few ingredients will be needed and will take less than 20 minutes to prepare the dish, and the average calories per serving will be around 250. 

You will need:

  • 500 g of sliced liver, (I used half pork/half lamb
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 pack of bacon rashers, cut into strips
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • salt pepper and herbs

Fry the bacon and onions for 2 minutes, or until they get golden brown than move them in the pot. Cook the seasoned liver for 2 minutes, until lightly browned, mix well and leave for another 2 minutes. 

Add the liver in the pot, with fried bacon and onions, and the chopped tomatoes. Stir well and let them cook together for another 5 minutes, stirring often. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 001b77f0cd107dc7f275b968c3c771e569fcc654612e59a8dd5737c294ac67d2.jpegFeel free to add any ingredients that makes you feel good, add chili flakes for some heat, or oriental spices for extra flavour.
