Beef Liver With Country Gravy

Total Time

This is the only way that I like to eat liver. The gravy seems to take away that strong "liver taste". My husband is all smiles when I cook him this. I serve it with mashed potatoes, corn, and biscuits or cornbread...a real belly-filler, but very good for you.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, until a drop of water sizzles on the oil surface.
  2. While waiting for the pan to preheat, combine flour, salt, and pepper (and garlic powder, if you wish) in a large tupperware bowl.
  3. Shake till mixed thoroughly.
  4. Add the liver to the flour bowl, cover the bowl and shake til coated, shake off and lay them in the frying pan.
  5. Reserve the flour mixture for the gravy.
  6. Brown the liver in the oil on both sides, remove them from the pan and set aside.
  7. Turn down the heat to low and toss in the onions and saute til clear.
  8. Remove pan from heat.
  9. Whip together milk and remaining flour until smooth.
  10. Return the pan to the burner and turn on medium-low.
  11. Add the flour/milk mixture (white sauce) to the pan of onions, stir constantly, until the gravy bubbles.
  12. Let simmer for 2 minutes.
  13. (NOTE: I keep the milk beside the stove JUST IN CASE the gravy seems too thick) Turn to low, add the liver, cover and simmer for another 10-15 minute.
  14. ,or until you see no more blood from the steaks.

Wow! Really good, I was looking for something to do with my grass-fed beef liver and I'm glad I picked this. I put my flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a bag coated it that way. I didn't have any light oil so I had to use olive oil. Once the onions were clear I added the a couple tablespoons of flour to the oil and onions like I was making a roux and stirred so I didn't have to worry about lumps and then added the milk. Super simple, tender and tasty!

I never cooked liver before, but I am preggers and I suddenly had the urge to eat liver today! So I tried this recipe and was so nervous cause I had no idea how the liver was suppose to come out. And even though I am preggers, I am still very picky about exactly what I eat. I loved it! I was going to eat it all but i decided to share with the other ppl, lol. if your looking for a good recipe with liver try this 1!
