There has been plenty of discussion about eating liver and the general consensus is that it is a great food to include it in ones diet. Also, several people have advised to have it raw or very lightly cooked. what happens if it is fully cooked? what nutrients are lost in fully cooking it? Is it worth it to have fully cooked liver?
The b12 gets damaged if you cook it but really it's just personal preference. It tastes unbearably foul cooked to me so I eat or drink it raw. Also if you're a believer in the power of enzymes, which I'm fairly skeptical about personally, obviously cooking destroys the enzymes. Personally, I feel energetic after my raw liver "shake," but I don't know how much of that is in my head because I believe it's good for me. Maybe it's the rush of b vitamins?
Here's an article from the WAPF about liver that may be helpful to you http://www.westonaprice.org/food-features/509-liver-files.html
For YOU, does it taste better cooked or raw?
If cooked, EAT IT COOKED. If raw, EAT IT RAW. If somewhere in the middle, EAT IT THATWHERE IN THE MIDDLE.
Your taste is a signal. It's not just some arbitrary aesthetic preference.
I cook it just like a steak, over high heat and seared on the outside but pink in the middle. When cooked just right, I find it has a better texture, that overcooked livery flavor is somewhat diminished, and it has cooked long enough to take some seasonings (salt + pepper, bacon, etc).
