Indonesian Pork Liver

Lee Thayer


This is delicious, I liked the use of the turmeric with the liver here. The spices with the coconut milk make an excellent sauce.

How to Make Indonesian Pork Liver


  1. Heat the oil in a large non stick pan on medium heat, when hot add the onion and garlic.
  2. Cook the onion, stirring often until nicely browned. Remove half of the onion to a bowl and set aside for garnish.
  3. Reduce heat to low, add the coriander, chili flakes, and turmeric and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the liver.
  4. Cook the liver and turn often.
  5. Until just browned, a few pink spots are ok as this is cooked longer.
  6. Stir in the soy sauce, peanut butter, and salt. Stir in the coconut milk. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to a low simmer, cover, and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Pour onto a serving plate, garnish with saved fried onions.
  8. Serve with rice on the side. Enjoy.
