Beef Liver Steaks with Onion Rings (Guisadong Atay ng Baka)

This beef liver steaks is a very simple dish, marinating the liver in soy sauce and calamansi then fry it. Marinating the livers reduce the musky odor so it will be more pleasant to eat. This is the reason why not everyone is so fond of eating livers specially the kids because it also have a slightly bitter taste. White onion give a mild sweet taste and reduce the livers bitter taste. I prefer to use white onions than red when cooking this dish. Anyway you can add a little sugar if you want if there are no white onions available.

To cook this dish; Marinate liver slices in soy sauce, salt, MSG and calamansi juice for at least half an hour. Saute onions for 4 to 5 minutes in medium fire then transfer to a serving dish. Drain the liver and save the marinade for later use. Then on the skillet where you sauteed the onions, fry the liver on both sides until brown but don’t overcook so it won’t become too tough. Then transfer the liver on the serving dish where you put the onions and put the onions on top. Then pour the marinade in the skillet and simmer for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper then pour over liver and onions.  To see the rest of the recipe with the exact measurement of ingredients, look below.
