I’ve had varying success with any liver recipe. I’ve tried ragout of liver, and Mexican liver and neither really appealed to me. Then I did make simple liver and onions. And I did actually quite like that, I think the reason was I didn’t overcook the liver. So considering the liver in this recipe was getting fried and then baked I was thinking I was going to end up with tough, unappetising chunks of liver…
I had bought half a pound of liver from the butcher for pennies! It really is a cheap cut of meat, just a shame it doesn’t taste better!!
So I started by frying the bacon, onion and liver altogether..
It says to fry until just brown which I tried to do but when it’s browned in places yet still bleeding in other I just felt I needed to give it longer. I think I had this frying for over 5 minutes..
Still not loving the look of this! It’s into the casserole with the tomatoes and Wocestershire sauce..
After half an hour I checked the liver and it felt pretty tough so I removed from the oven. The sauce had thickened slightly..
I decided to serve this with some mashed potatoes..
Well the sauce is nice!! The liver is pretty awful!! It’s just soooo overcooked! I had made this for all three of us and even my 7 year daughter had a go at the liver. She had a few bites and told me it tasted like poo, but then actually carried on trying more just to make sure. I don’t think she hated as much the more she tried it! I didn’t like the liver much at all, it was ok when I cut it into tiny bits and mixed with the bacon and onion but the big chunks of it were really hard to eat!
Would I make this again? Nope!!
