Wonderful! So easy and quick to prepare and so delicious. I only made slight alterations. First I soaked the calves liver in milk - why - because my Mother said so - she's almost 90 and I'm not about to argue. I then followed your recipe. Besides the onions I added bacon like it has come served in some restaurants when I've ordered it out. I served it with creamed spinach and baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, bacon bits, and a little shredded cheese. I think calves liver gets a bum rap probably because the name prohibits people from trying it. It's great folks - give it a chance. Thanks for the recipe, now I can make it at home.

Delicious and very easy! Our grocery doesn't carry calves liver, so used beef liver - it was wonderful. Also good now that the sweet Texas 1015 onions are in season!

This recipe is also great if you make a gravy to put over the liver and onions.

This is a very good recipe with the exception that bacon is SO GOOD with liver and onions. I also simmer the liver in some beef broth; really makes it tender. With mashed potatoes is usually the way it is served in restaurants and the broth makes a good gravy.

I have rated this already because this is exactly how I love to do my liver. Sometimes I remove the liver and quickly make a gravy with the onions and serve with mashed potatoes -I'm on my way to the store. Fellow liver lover check out the other liver recipes too on Zaar 3 Oct 08 Love this easy recipe I added some mushrooms and because I didn't use any amount of oil (just a spray of Mazola) for the last couple of minutes cooking I added 1 oz brandy in 1 oz water to the pan, covered it and 2 minutes Mmmmm

This was a smash hit, and I have to admit I was skeptical. But the family loved it. My husband told me it was the best liver and onions he has ever had! High praise from a man who usally remarks "I'm choking it down, aren't I?" when asked if he is enjoying his dinner!

Just like my gram's recipe... Tender liver and sauteed onions.. Doesn't get any better than that! I saute my onions in a separate pan, so they will be ready when the liver is nice and hot and just out of the pan. Served with mashed potatoes and stewed tomatoes, it's a comfort meal fit for a king. Oh yeah, and lots of ketchup on the side for dipping... Mmmmmmm Goot! Linda

I LOVE this! I fried bacon slices first and used the grease from bacon instead of the vege oil (ok, so not so great for heart, but oh-so-tasty!) and soft-fried onions in grease BEFORE cookind liver in same grease. YUMMY!
