How do you clean and cook deer liver?
Venison Liver and Onions Dredge the liver slices in seasoned flour (with a bit of salt, pepper, onion/garlic powder, and paprika), or simply leave the slices plain and un-dredged. Add a dab more oil to the pan, and fry the liver slices over a hot fire until firm. This should take no more than 2-4 minutes per side.
How do you tenderize deer liver?
Place the liver in a bowl and soak the slices in milk or buttermilk for 30 to 60 minutes. You can also soak the liver in salt water or a bowl of water with about a teaspoon of white vinegar. Any of these methods will help to tenderize the meat and remove the gamey flavor.

You are ready to fry them up, or place the strips on wax paper or silicone baking mats on a baking sheet, and freeze them. Once they are frozen, I’ll take the solid strips and vacuum seal them in serving size portions – which are perfect for a lunch of liver and onions at a moments notice.
Can you freeze fresh liver?
Yes, you can freeze liver. Liver can be frozen for around 3 months. Fresh liver will only be good in the fridge for a few days after buying it, so unless you plan on using leftover liver the following day, you should wrap it up and freeze it right away to preserve its freshness.
Is liver A Superfood?
Not many foods are worthy of the title “superfood.” However, liver is one of them. Once a popular and treasured food source, liver has fallen out of favor. This is unfortunate because liver is a nutritional powerhouse. It’s rich in protein, low in calories and packed with essential vitamins and minerals.
How do you freeze deer hearts?
I drop the heart right from the deer into a quart freezer bag and fill with enough water to cover the heart. Same as I do with tenderloins. No freezer burn that way. Those are the only parts that don’t get cleaned and trimmed before freezing.
How do you store deer hearts?
Once trimming is complete, rinse the heart well to remove any remaining blood. Thoroughly dry the heart before placing it in a zip-close bag and storing it in the freezer.
