    I'm an old codger who need help--does anybody remember a recipe with calf liver and chunks of tomato cooked together and served over
    rice ? I was a teenager during ww2 and we ate it a lot--very good.

    If any body can get me close I'll experiment.


    ps. I remember the liver was cubed

    Hi gemm2,
    It is not a good idea to post your personal e-mail address here in the forums because you can get unwanted spam, as sometimes have happened. You can delete it by clicking the small edit tab under the right side of your message, ok?

    Now about your recipe request, most of the recipes found include only onions, but I found these similar recipes with tomatoes that maybe you can adapt them according to your Mom's recipe, or hope that maybe one of these could be the one you want.
