My husband and I just cooked beef liver using this recipe. The recipe is simple with items I always have on hand. It was absolutely DELICIOUS! I could envision this recipe being a Specialtly at an up-scale restaurant. My husband would have preferred less sugar in the sauce....the next time I make this (which will be soon) I will use less sugar. Some of the best liver and onions I have ever eaten!!

Nice meal, thank! I used lambs liver, it has a much nicer flavor.

I really enjoyed my dinner. I have never soaked liver in milk but it seems to mellow the flavor. Lovely gravy forms with the broth, onions and sour cream - I used whipped cottage cheese instead of the sour cream - It works well and I always have it in the house. Thanks for a very tasty liver dinner Aroostook
