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.

I used minced garlic and garlic seasoning also added light butter. And threw some onions and green peppers and lemon juice while sautéing the livers! Turned out great I keep the carbs down so I’...
