the bokrat liver is as warm as the bloodwine (HQ 13.1:8)

HQ 13.1:8:  ... *bokrat* liver is typically served hot in a stew

KGT 93:  Some dishes are prepared by heating meat in a liquid consisting of the animal's blood along with some choice condiments. To prepare food in this way is to {Qev} it. Livers of *bokrats* are typically prepared in this manner. Though the dish is heated, in order to properly make "boqrat chej Qevlu'pu'bogh* (stewed *bokrat* liver; literally, "*bokrat* liver that has been stewed"), the livers should be from an animal that was killed only minutes before. The difference in flavor between fresh and nearly stale livers is most noticeable.

Stewed *boqrat* liver was served on board the Rotarran. It wasn't fresh, but Jadzia thought it might be palatable with a little bloodwine. (DS9 "Soldiers of the Empire")
