I'm in the same boat as you - I just don't like the taste of liver, even though I've prepared it numerous different ways. Good thing my farmer sells it for so cheap, and my dog is always happy to take care of what I can't stomach, lol. But this I'm definitely going to try. I also have been making a good deal of Thai inspired dishes lately with ground beef and/or bison, which are heavily spiced as well. I'm sure that organ meat flavor would be nicely masked by a generous serving of red curry paste... ;)

Lee - so glad I'm not alone! Thai and Indian cooking is something I've never done and would love to learn more about. First I have to know what I would like because I've never really eaten it either! I just have a feeling that I would like the strong flavors.

I find that Southeastern Asian dishes are super easy to make, if you have the right ingredients on hand. Most are one-skillet type preparations, which I love. Here's a good recipe to start with - very simple and delicious.

(I hope I can post links to outside resources here)
Most grocery stores carry red curry paste and fish sauce nowadays... I substitute riced cauliflower for the rice, and just stir it in a minute before turning the heat off. I find that this is a pretty flexible recipe as well. I just dice up whatever veggies I have on hand that need to be used up, and throw them in. Sometimes I need to up the amount of coconut milk and tomato sauce to balance it out, but overall I can't go wring with this recipe when I want to throw together a quick one-skillet meal. Hope you get to try this out!

Oops - bad spelling on that post, and I meant to add that I use about 2 tablespoons coconut oil in place of the cooking spray.

Sneaky! But thats what I do ( Don't tell Bill!!! ) I take the liver, grind it up, and add it to ground meat products like meat balls, and even hamburgers. They never know. :)

Jen, I've also done meatballs and hamburgers and meatloaf. Once even with buffalo burgers. I have to be careful of the ratio though - a couple of times Tim said it tasted to 'livery'.
