How to cook foie gras

In this article I would like to share with you how to cook Foie Gras. Foie Gras is either Goose or Duck Liver(more commonly duck nowadays) from a duck or Goose that is force fed to produce a very fatty liver. Foie Gras is a delicacy and quite expensive, usually only being served at higher end restaurants. It can be a little challenging to cook and prepare but with practice comes perfection.

First off you need to clean and devein the Foie Gras, for pan searing it does not need as much deveining but for terrines or tourchons the task can be daunting. Separate the 2 Lobes and pull away the veins on the outside.Cut the large vein connecting the 2 lobes and with tweezers or clean needle nose plyers pull the major veins out.

Foie Gras is composed of 90% Fat so sauteing it is alot like trying to saute a piece of cold butter. If you cook it too long it will disappear into a liquid. The key is to have a very hot pan and have no oil in it. lightly score a criss cross pattern on the surface of the slabs,Season with salt. Place in the pan and press down, you should hear a loud sizzle if the pan is not hot enough take it out immediately. Sear until Golden Brown on both sides, the internal temperature should be 119 degrees. If not using a thermometer you want the inside still solid so press lightly to feel how much is still solid and how much is soft. For another trick slide the foie far away from the handle of the pan and tilt the pan so the flame is still on the pan but all the fat has dripped down near the handle.constantly baste the top with the fat leaking off the foie gras. This works well since the flame from the stove will sear the bottom and the hot fat being spooned onto the foie is browning the top at the same time. Your overall goal is to cook the foie gras as quickly as possible so as not to melt it to nothing.

Top the Foie with some fleur de sel and cracked black pepper. Serve with toasted brioche and some home made fruit jam such as figs or strawberry jam. In the fall I love foie with some home made apple butter. Foie Gras is some serious Foodie food not something to serve to your kids but definitely will impress your foodie friends at your next dinner party or event!
