Beef or Chicken?

    Is this too tough a question?

    Maybe. I don't recall what my chopped liver came from. But not knowing the answer never kept me from expressing an opinion. :)

    Chicken.

    In high-end delis it's made from quail livers.

    Now now Steven, I've probably eaten more chopped liver than you, considering my NJ birthplace and advance age. I, of course, prefer chicken but asked the question only after learning that beef is used in some delis. While I love fried beef liver I have no love for a chopped version.

    BTW each Xmas I make the greatest Chicken Liver pate known to mankind. The secret is a granny smith apple and some apple brandy.

    I was born at Beth Israel Hospital on Flatbush Avenue. There's no way you've eaten more chopped liver than I have. :)

    I've probably crapped more chopped chicken liver than you've eaten, hell I probably crapped most of the chopped chicken liver you've eaten. :D

    I loved the breaded Beef liver in the army, probably because I was so hungry. Venison Heart and Liver are not good fried in powder sugar. How can someone not tell the difference between that and flour?

    Chicken and Goose livers are the foulest things on the planet causing me projectile vomit more than once. I'll stay with my Kippers and Sardines.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    I'm with Salty about calves liver, pan seared or sauteed with onions. Mmm, mmm good. Beef liver isn't nearly as tasty, too strong and too tough.

    Goose liver, especially foie gras is the platinum standard, either seared or in pate, terrine or mousse. Chicken livers are good as well, and I especially like them upscale southern style with caramelized onions and tasso ham in a Madeira sauce.

    Out to dinner in the Berkshires 2 weeks ago I had a nice piece of Hudson Valley Foie Gras at a small inn. It was spectacular, sauteed with mushrooms and red wine.

    The only good liver is the kind I am not being served.

    liverwurst or Braunschweiger. I'm not supposed to eat it because: 1. it's all cholesterol and saturated fat 2. Its full of purine, the precursor to uric acid and gout attacks. 3. Pigs are disgusting, and pig livers are even more disgusting. And of course, there is that possibility of going to Jewish hell thing. Good reasons to enjoy the heck out it every few years.

    You know, i don't think I've ever even noticed a chopped chicken liver product in my Denver suburban store. Hell, they don't even have fresh calves liver, which is wonderful.
