Seared Liver with Mushrooms and Monterey Jack

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"When I was a child, I could never enjoy the fried or smothered liver that Mom made because I didn't like liver. As an adult, wishing to please a liver-loving friend, I found this recipe and was amazed to really like it myself. I searched the web for this recipe to no avail and finally found it in my collection. It's so good, I had to share. Mushrooms, onion, Monterey Jack cheese, sherry, and herbs add a wonderful balance."
