Thank you Pippy for this great recipe. I admit I didn't have fresh parsley and I added green pepper but it was fabulous. I made it in honor of a guest's request not because I'm a fan but that has changed. Maybe it was the fact that I used excellent sherry? Anyway it was delicious. And after dinner it looked less appetizing as a leftover so I whirled it up and now I enjoy a wonderful pate. Thanks again! Read More

I thought I would try something new on my family. Needless to say that all 5 of us do not like liver. We ended up getting pizza instead. Read More

Tyhis is fabulous!!! Doesn't even taste like liver. Thyme seems to be the key flavor to make this out standing! Read More

I am not a great fan of liver but my wife loves it so for her I decided to give it a try. I followed the recipe exactly except that I did not have French bread so used some Sour Dough that I had on hand and it worked just fine. I also did as Dr. Shaw and turned the left-overs into a Pate for the wife as she loves that also. This is definately a keeper and will probably make it for the next family gathering just to turn it into the Pate just for the pre dinner appitizers. Read More

Loved it! I have made this 3 times so far. I once substituted chicken broth for the sherry and wasn't nearly as good. Read More

A good solid liver and onion recipe. I used a blush wine as I had no sherry. Good flavor. Next time I will add mushrooms. Read More

My husband and I loved this recipe. I made it as written except I used dried parsley as I did not have any fresh. Take the time to make the croutons - it is so worth it! Read More

Terrific, make sure that you don't overcook liver, remove from pan until ready to serve. Thicken remaining sauce. Serve with your best mashed potatoes, skip the croutons Read More
