I had to make this with chicken liver (can't find any other here:() A lovely gravy forms as you cook and carries a wonderful flavour that is a nice change from your everyday meal. My husband agreed that the vinegar taste is slightly too forward, maybe reduce it a few drops. The two of us ate pretty much the whole yield in one sitting! Thanks, Olga
