How to Make Liver & onions


  1. Melt butter in fry pan.. Fry on med.-med/high heat..
  2. Stirring often..til they begin to brown..when onions are tender..gently break them up..( I use a wooden spoon..that way they seperate but don't break ).. sprinkle sugar evenly and lightly starting from once side and slowly working your way to the other side if the fry pan over the onions..lift onion up and over and repeat with suger..stir..
  3. Meanwhile.. ( while you're waiting for your onions to brown ).. Put flour on a plate..cut your liver into strips and put in flour and coat strips evenly..
  4. When your onions have browned a little but your coated liver strips in pan on top of onions..then sprinkle a little sugar evenly over the tops of the pork and the onions ( doing it like you did for the plain onions )..
  5. Turn heat down to just below medium..turn once..sprinkle sugar again..and immediately turn back over..cook slowly when the edges of the liver begin to change color..turn over..sprinkle with sugar again..but only if you're not a big liver til JUST done..when a fork sticks into them easily and don't feel spongy..they are this point remove both the liver and the onions ..((note; if onions begin to brown too much take them out ahead of time and add them back to pan at last min. To warm back up again..fry remaining liver and do it again..if you wish you can start with more fresh onions..
  6. NOTE: measurements are approximate as this is my own recipe and I measure nothing..also directions are approximate and relayed to you the best that I can as I don't follow an actual recipe..
