Step 1: You will need:

  • 300 g veal liver
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 25 g butter
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 60 ml of sweet wine (port, sherry, or Madeira)
  • some salt and pepper
  • 1 frying pan
  • tongs
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 tray
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 bowl

Step 2: Fry the bacon

Place the frying pan onto the hob and turn to a medium heat. Add a little oil and allow to warm through. Add the bacon slices, with your tongs and fry until one side is crispy. Then turn them over to fry on the other side. Remove the bacon from the pan and place onto a tray.

Step 3: Cook the onions

Into the same pan, add the onions and stir in with a wooden spoon. Slowly sweat the onions for a few minutes, until they are lightly browned. Stir and toss occasionally so that they do not burn. Now add the sweet wine to the pan. Let it cook for a minute or so, to reduce. Next, add a knob of butter and stir in well. Season with salt and pepper, remove from the heat and transfer into the bowl, keeping it warm.

Step 4: Prepare the liver

Season both sides of the liver with salt and pepper.
Now, lightly sprinkle flour on both sides. This will stop it sticking and create a slight crust. Shake off any excess flour. Place the frying pan on medium-high heat. Add some oil and a knob of butter. Now place the liver into the pan. Fry for 1-2 minutes each side. Remove it from the heat.

Step 5: Fry the liver

Place the frying pan onto a medium-high heat. Add some oil and a knob of butter and allow to melt. When totally melted and the foam has subsided add the liver. Fry for 2-3 minutes on the first side. Then turn it over and fry it for 2-3 minutes on the second side, depending on the thickness of your liver. Liver should be served slightly pink in the middle. Prod with your tongs and it should feel fairly firm. Remove it from the heat and place with the bacon.

Step 6: Serve

Place the liver on a serving plate. Garnish with the bacon, the onions, and a few sprigs of parsley. This recipe goes well with Champ, which is buttery, onion mashed potatoes, which can be found here on VideoJug. Enjoy!
