Top Review by Melissa G.

We made braised liver by dredging liver in flour, browning it on both sides, packing on the onions, adding water to cover, bringing to a boil, then turning the heat down to simmer. It was simmered 45 minutes covered, then uncovered for 15 minutes. The liver was very tender and mild, and there was a sauce with the onions.
