• 1 large onion, thinly sliced
• 2 tbsp butter or oil
• Salt and pepper to taste
• Optional: garlic, herbs (thyme or rosemary)

1. Season liver slices with salt and pepper.
2. In a pan, melt butter or heat oil over medium heat.
3. Add sliced onions (and garlic if desired) and sauté until softened and golden brown.
4. Push onions to the side, add liver slices to the pan, and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked through.

Nutritional Considerations:
• Combining with Vitamin C: To enhance iron absorption from liver, consider combining it with vitamin C-rich foods like vegetables or fruits.
• Moderation is Key: While beef liver is nutrient-dense, it’s essential to consume it in moderation due to its high vitamin A content. Excessive vitamin A intake can be harmful, especially during pregnancy.

Before making significant dietary changes, especially if considering organ meats like liver, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian to ensure it aligns with individual health needs and considerations.
