This is an excellent recipe. I was going to mark you down one star for not indicating how much ginger to use - 1 small gingerroot does not really define it- however I enjoyed the recipe so much I didn't have the heart to mark it down - I used 2 tsps of ginger and it could take a little more.. The other difference I used 2 cloves garlic. Served over rice with steamed baby carrotts. Liver lovers unit! Thanks Gerry for an enjoyable meal

A great new way to serve liver - thanks for the recipe, Gerry. I added a green pepper, but otherwise followed the recipe closely; didn't bother taking out the peppercorns (which I had cracked) since we like heat. Served with stir-fried green beans and plain rice.

Not my favourite....but then this was my first time trying liver, so maybe it's just me!
