I just want to say you are a life savor! I HATE liver with a passion. I was diagnosed with very low iron because of a surgery that I am to be having. I went passed 6 wks no luck still low. I have 4 wks to get my hemoglobin to 12 its at 11.3. I am now eatting liver twice a day. This recipe is the bomb!!!! The liver taste is gone. I eat it likes its hamburger. I did add some hot peppers and mushrooms but other than that it was perfect. Do you know that even my 7 year old asked for seconds. I may just like liver now...well with this recipe anyways.

I don't like liver but need to eat it for medical reasons. This recipe sounded like it disguised the taste of liver quite well based on the reviews. Let me tell you it does NOT hide the taste. If you don't like liver you still won't like this either. Read More

This recipe was a big surprise. I like liver but not a liver lover. Thought I would try this once. Cooked two lbs. of liver my husband and I had two meals of it and nothing left. I even went back for seconds. We always eat the standard liver and onions but now this will certainly be right there too. Thanks. Read More

I used chicken liver instead of beef liver and didn't flour the pieces before frying in oil. I added salt pepper onion oregano parsley and paprika to the pan while frying. I substituted about 10 ounces of tomato sauce and 2 spoons of tomato paste in place of the water and ketchup. I served it with plain white rice and it was fantastic. Read More

Made this recipe for me and my hubby. We both liked it however I didn't have to cook it in the sauce for the 20 minutes. As it was I had to add a small amount of water because it was evaporating. I usually have the standard liver and onions but it was really good for a change. Read More
