How to Make CALF'S LIVER WITH CARAMELIZED ONIONS--BONNIE

Step-by-Step

  1. COOK'S TIP
    Marinate the calf's liver in a shallow dish covered with soy sauce. You can cook the onions in one skillet and the liver in a second skillet.
  2. ONIONS:
    Caramelize the onion rings while the liver marinates. Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat, add one tablespoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of butter. Add the onion rings and a little pepper to taste. Salt lightly, if you prefer. Cook onions until limp. Add the 3 tablespoons of milk, one at a time, to the pan with the onions and stir gently and cook until golden brown. As they brown, you will have to watch them carefully so they don't burn. When they are a nice caramel color, set aside and keep warm.
  3. LIVER
    Pre-heat a large skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil and one tablespoon butter. Remove liver from the shallow dish, shake off soy sauce. Shake garlic powder generously over liver, follow with fresh cracked pepper. Place the seasoned side of the liver in the hot oil. Fry until it is brown, then turn and fry the other side until it is brown. Make sure it is brown, but don't overcook the liver. About 5 minutes per side.
  4. Serve with the caramelized onions on top of the liver. Enjoy!
