How to Remove the Bitter Taste From Beef Liver

Liver and onions may not sound appealing to some people, but many enjoy the taste of the meat. Sometimes beef liver can have a bitter taste that can make it unappealing. The bitter taste can overwhelm your taste buds and turn you away from enjoying the meat. You can remove this bitter taste at home by soaking the liver in milk to make the taste milder. After you soak the liver in the milk, prepare it with your preferred cooking method.

Cut the liver to your desired thickness and size.

Place the beef liver into a shallow container.

Fill the container with whole milk to cover the liver completely.

Place the liver and milk in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours.

Remove the liver from the milk. Pat the liver dry with paper towels.

Warning

Always wash your hands after handling raw liver to prevent spreading harmful bacteria.
