I found Beef liver on sale & wanted to make something different from the usual Liver & onions. I came across the basic recipe in one of my Better Homes & Garden Meat Stretcher cookbooks, & added quite a few extra ingredients that were not included in the original recipe.

The results was a very tasty crunchy, colorful & appetizing main course. My husband remarked that it looked like Pepper Steak. The liver was moist & very tender & most delicious, we loved it. I served it over a bed of rice with additional chopped green onions. The water chestnuts added extra crunch & texture to the dish.
