Cut into strips (called “iscas”, literally “fish baits”) and sautéed with sliced onions, beef liver is a classic snack in botecos across the country,
and a common dish in many homes. With a very soft, velvety texture, it goes well with tomato, potato and creamed vegetables, such as corn. It can also be prepared in steaks, and used in liver pâtés, often served as an appetizer in several restaurants in Brazil, alongside toasted sliced of bread. Nutritionists consider beef liver a superfood: it is high in vitamins, iron, and other beneficial nutrients.
