I am a meat lover, I don't like liver a lot particularly but it is a great source of vitamins as it turns out, so I tried your recipe and now I am a fan of liver. It was so damn delicious, I still have its taste back in my mouth when I am telling about it. And the onions were the icing on the cake. I liked it a lot, great recipe.

Fixed today following directions and my husband said this was the way it should be fixed for people that don’t eat liver and onions. I still won’t eat it, but he loved it! This recipe is a keeper and so simple. Thank you!

can we adapt this ?

Guest
Can you do this without the milk, or does this help soften and help break the liver down, problem is I am allergic to milk
Reply

alenatrs
Almond milk can work as well, but it may change a bit the taste of the liver. - Alena

Not a Big Fan

Guest
Im typically not a fan of liver, but I live on a farm and the bacon stash is low so I cooked the pork liver according to this recipe. It was bomb. Ill probably cook it again, which is not something I've ever desired of liver.

I have cooked liver many times this way, as I grew up loving liver and onions. Sometimes I soak liver in milk overnight and get best liver ever. It's always a big hit and no leftovers!

This was a fantastic dinner idea!! The liver was very tender and mild flavored. I did soak the liver in milk for about 3 hours. This is by far one of my favorite liver recipes.

Thank you for this recipe it worked great. I made a few changes by adding bacon and more onions to it, and some sugar to caramelize the onions. Came out pretty good and yummy.
