This was great! I had a tube of liverwurst lying around that needed to get eaten up and I couldn't face another boring cold liverwurst sandwich. This recipe was very easy, super fast, and tasted delicious. Even my liverwurst hating DH ate some. Thanks! I will be making this again.

Thank You so much for this recipe. I doubled it and the flavor is just the way I remembered it. I once tried making it with fresh liver and it was not at all good. I will definitely make it again.

So delicious for so little effort. I used the yolk and some chopped green onion, as I had no chives. I also used chicken broth instead of beef, we like it lighter, and threw in a bay leaf and some peppercorns while bringing it up to a simmer, just to add a little more flavor. I made the entire recipe and this was two servings for us.
