    I love organ meats with liver and heart leading the race :)

    Just_tomek - 🤗

    Just saw this after my liver love declaration hehe.

    By the way - I use heart in my meatloaf! 👍🏻👍🏻

    what does liver actually taste like??

    Awful. It has a flavor that lingers. Mix of metallic taste and gaminess. It's too rich. The texture is slightly grainy but squishy at the same time. Have you ever had the misfortune of smelling liver while it's cooking? Yeah, you do taste that stinkiness. That was chicken liver I tried, and from what I've been told, beef tastes even stronger.

    @pancakerunner - I had to think about this awhile.... interested to see what @just_Tomek thinks too!

    I’d say - good beef liver tastes mineral-y. I find the texture more defining than the taste. I like it when it’s pan seared, slightly soft (not mushy) inside and a slight crisp on the outside. I’ve always found good liver to be very mild tasting and no scent.

    From reddit: "Very irony/mineral-y, a lot like cooked blood only much better. Very earthy and beefy. I cook it with onions and bacon and it's glorious. I don't eat it very often, though. It took me a while to learn to appreciate it. Start with chicken livers. You'll find that the livers of various animals are very different tasting, though they have many flavors and textures in common."

    Earthy is a good word for it!

    I love liver! My grandma taught me to soak it in milk for a while before cooking it. It helps take the blood taste away and makes it tender and sweet. I don't eat it often as it is rich, maybe 2 or 3 times per year...dredged in flour then fried up crispy and then baked in onions and gravy...

    I hate asparagus! Tastes like dirt! Yes I have tasted dirt...heh heh..

    Beer is disgusting. I have tried craft ones, “good ones”, all kinds. All are gross to me. The maltiness is what is bad.

    ALL beer just tastes like dish washing liquid to me. Soapy!

    Oddly I love Coriander (Cilantro) which is supposed to taste soapy to some genetically challenged people! 🤷‍♀️

    Agreed. I love cilantro!

    I don't love it or hate it, but it doesn't taste soapy to me. It just tastes like an herb.

    I like it only in some dishes and it does taste a bit detergenty but fresh to me, I didn't realize that wasn't normal.

    As BarbaraHelen noted, there's a genetic thing that causes cilantro taste soapy (or I've also heard metallic) for some. Presumably some don't have that, but just don't like it that much, just as it's presumably possible to dislike rosemary or sage.

    Cilantro does not taste soapy to me, and I do love it.

    The only dish/thing that cilantro actually adds value to is fresh pico de gallo

    I'm one of those soap-inclined cilantro people. My brother, interestingly, is not.

    I dont know how to describe it. All I can say that it tastes like, well.... liver, earthy maybe. Not metallic like some describe at all. But its all about how you cook it. Its very very easy to make it become tough and have terrible taste. If you want to try, I would suggest chicken liver to start with. Let me know if you need an easy and tasty recipe idea.
