Liver and Onions

This is a VERY old recipe that is not real clear on amounts, but you can pretty much figure out the amounts you need as you go. NOT a dish that I, personally like much, but it was a favorite of my dad's and so we had it a lot. For those who do like liver, I'm sure you'll enjoy this.

If you have trouble keeping the liver tender, soak it in milk before frying. That will also tenderize liver when reheating it. (06/24/2009)

It's so funny that I saw this post this morning; yesterday at dinner my daughter was telling my grandkids that depending on what foods you're brought up with, that's what you'll prefer when you're an adult. I said I begged to differ. My folks loved liver and onions but I couldn't stand it when I was little, and I can't stand it as an adult. Some tastes never change! Thanks for the memory! (07/13/2009)

Yes, It must be a generational thing. My Mom would fix liver and onions for us during the 50's. Not a hit with the kids, but then you ate what was put before you. When I grew up I thought maybe it was a Midwest regional favorite, since she was from Missouri. Carl Sandburg had a line about liver and onions in one of his poems from "Rootabaga Stories". But I live in Hawaii now, my friend (born and raised here) said her Mom would fix it too. (07/19/2009)

When we want to have beef liver, I cook it with onion soup mix. First you dredge the liver well in seasoned flour (salt and pepper and others if you wish to use). Then I put it in my electric skillet in some oil. Then sprinkle on the onion soup mix (I use Lipton's), cover with water cook until done.

Remove the liver from the broth, bring the broth to a boil and make it into a gravy. Return the liver to the gravy and serve over rice, potatoes or noodles. We like it over potatoes the best.

Liver and Onions

When I fix liver and onions, I do mine different than anyone else that I know of. I soak my liver in cold water for about 5 minutes then drain it, then put it in cold water again for about 5 minutes. I do this about 3 times. It gets rid of that bloody taste, and my liver is always so tender.

Sounds terrific. Love pork, beef and especially chicken liver. When we were kids, we were told to eat our liver. Tt was good for us. Now that we're "old", we aren't supposed to touch the stuff. My husband recently had a heart attack. He is doing just great but liver is not on the table any more. As he says, all the good stuff is gone! Enjoy occasionally while you can. (12/01/2007)
