  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir livers in the hot skillet until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Add olive oil, lemon juice, and salt to livers; gently stir until mixed. Remove skillet from heat and sprinkle garlic over livers.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • The dry-fry technique prevents the liver from browning and keeps it tender enough to melt in your mouth.
  • You can use virgin olive oil, but it somewhat overpowers the dish, which has a surprisingly mild flavor.

Cooking the livers in the dry skillet was interesting--no need to use the splatter guard like I normally do when frying livers. They turned out perfectly. Unfortunately, we weren't fans of the l...

I use garlic olive oil, garlic pepper, salt and omitted the lemon juice. I put on mashed potatoes with the gravy-Awesome! Will make again for sure ??. Good eats ....

I made them for my grandma and she loved them! I did add some onion slices while I was frying the liver, though. It did take much longer than 5 minutes to cook, more like 15 minutes.

Made it this afternoon and did put the garlic in with the livers. Threw it all in the crock pot with some pasta sauce and meatballs for dinner tonight. Winner

Don’t like raw garlic on cooked meat so I added it in to the pan once the livers were almost cooked. This dish lacks flavour. Will not make it again and wouldn’t recommend it to my friends
