Liver Steak is marinated fried liver in soy sauce, lemon, and onion sauce. The method of cooking this dish is similar to that of Bistek tagalog.
Some of us do not want to eat liver because of its gamy taste (that includes me when I was younger). I guess that the gamy taste that I experienced during my first try haunts me every time I see a liver dish. It was just only a few years ago that I learned to enjoy eating this because I learned some method that could reduce the unpleasant taste (just reduce, not eliminate). I also forced myself to eat liver for health reasons.
This recipe could reduce the gamy taste to help you enjoy the dish better.
