  1. Gently rinse liver slices under cold water, and place in a medium bowl. Pour in enough milk to cover. Let stand while preparing onions. (I like to soak up to an hour or two - whatever you have time for.) This step is SO important in taking the bitter taste of the liver out.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Separate onion rings, and saute them in butter until soft. Remove onions, and melt remaining butter in the skillet. Season the flour with salt and pepper, and put it in a shallow dish or on a plate. Drain milk from liver, and coat slices in the flour mixture.
  3. When the butter has melted, turn the heat up to medium-high, and place the coated liver slices in the pan. Cook until nice and brown on the bottom. Turn, and cook on the other side until browned. Add onions, and reduce heat to medium. Cook a bit longer to taste. Our family prefers the liver to just barely retain a pinkness on the inside when you cut to check. Enjoy!

I absolutely loved this recipe! I added a little garlic to the pan before I fried the onions, and that gave it a really nice flavour.

Great recipe! My husband raved about the liver. I was a little hesitant since I hadn't cooked liver in over 15 years. I used extra virgin olive oil instead of the butter.

Add some cold water into the leftover flour, mix it up, and then add it to the liver and onions pan, once you have removed the liver and onions. It will make a delicous gravy. Then toss the live...
