I know that a lot of people don't care for liver and I have to admit we go through spurts on having it. But when we do, this is our favorite recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat liver with flour; set aside.
  2. Brown bacon; drain on paper towels.
  3. Brown onions in drippings.
  4. Brown liver quickly in same skillet, about 1 minute on each side.
  5. Drain fat.
  6. Combine broth, water, liver, pepper and tarragon.
  7. Cover and simmer 20 minutes until liver is fork tender.
  8. Uncover; top with bacon.
  9. Simmer uncovered 5 to 10 minutes until sauce is consistency of gravy.

WOW!! This was so good. I don't know how you did it, but they tasted just like what my grandma used to fix. I did have to add more fat to the liver while it was frying. My bacon didn't make enough. Thanks so much for posting. I now have a new liver & onion recipe. Made for Photo Tag.

Tried the recipe today. My wife did not like liver but she really liked this recipe. We will make this again.
