Calf’s Liver with White Onions

Every now and then I crave calf liver with a lot of sharp, white onions. We have some excellent beef producers at the market, and I recently bought liver from Lazy BG.

The Recipe


I sliced the liver into thin strips and dredged it in flour that I’d added salt and freshly ground pepper. I heated grapeseed oil in a cast iron skillet, and cooked strips of liver about a minute and a half on each side. Then I removed the liver, deglazed the skillet with water, sliced a white onion into thin rings, and braised them until translucent. At that point, I put the liver strips into the skillet with the onions for just long enough to make the liver and onions equally hot. I ate them with chopped parsley on top and oven-roasted potatoes on the side.
