Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Transfer bacon to a plate, reserving a small amount of grease in the pan and the rest aside.

  • Pour seasoning coating mix into a large resealable plastic bag. Place calves' liver in bag one slice at a time; seal, and toss to coat.

  • Cook liver in bacon grease over medium high heat, turning occasionally to brown both sides. Depending on the size of your skillet you may need to work in batches and add more bacon grease. Liver is done when juices run clear. Return bacon to the skillet during the last 2 minutes of cooking to warm through. Serve hot with your favorite side dish.

The whole family loved this recipe! My kids raved about how good it was & how tender it was. It was then that I told them it was liver. They didnt believe me! I ran out of bacon grease at the end, so added some olive oil. I also threw in some sliced onion & cover the skillet while I cooked it. Awsome! Read More

Phenomenal! I didn t have the seasoning so I dredged in flour with some garlic salt. Then I added chopped onions to the bacon grease. Sooo good. Best liver ever. Read More

This was really good! I did add onions to the bacon grease after taking out the bacon but otherwise followed the recipe. We were not sure we even liked liver prior to this. Would definitely give it a try! Read More

Made it with very fresh pork liver but followed the recipe exactly as per the instructions. Boy howdy was it good!! Made rice and Pork and Beans to go with it with some buttermilk biscuits. My family inhaled it in very short order while protesting that they did not like liver. Shut up and eat. It has actually been requested by one of the anti liver kids. Good stuff. Read More

I read how liver is high in choline and other essential nutrients but never tried making it. This recipe is fantastic! I also didn't have shake-n-bake so I used seasoned flour like another reviewer suggested and it was perfect! Read More

I wanted to try a different kind of meat so I purchased liver. This recipe gave that liver appeal. I made it twice already and will continue to make it. Read More
