    Pets'R'us's Note:

    If you read this recipe and think that it is hot you might like to know that the original recipe uses 14 small red peppers! Add more if you like. I only taste the sauce of this, because I don't like liver, and think it is hot enough. If you cannot get the lime leaves the only substitute I know of is lime zest. The flavors do improve if you make it in advance and then reheat.

      YUM! I had been craving liver lately and this indonesian recipe was the only was I could get BF to have it (he thought the sauce tasted great and the liver flavour to be not too strong, which is a lot from the liver hater he is...) We used 1 1/2 pound veal liver, 2 cups low fat coconut milk, 3 lime leaves, 1 1/2 tbsp frozen chopped lemongrass. We started with 2 seeded chili peppers in the paste and added a little powdered cayenne pepper at the end to adjust - I just think it's easier to add than to remove... We were too lazy to go to the thai market to get the galangal, so we used altogether a 1 cube inch piece of ginger (the recipe is not very clear about the ginger amount) and dried turmeric. Served it over cooked quinoa (I know, so not authentic, but I love quinoa and it has a greater nutritional value than couscous or rice). Thank you for this unusal and very good recipe!

      This Liver recipe is very unique, spicy and tasty I do not think it will be to everyones liking but I think it is wonderful! I had to do some substituting due to availability of ingredients - I used dried Kaffir lime leaves & 1 tbsp dried Lemongrass. I did not have galangal so I added an additional tsp of dried ginger -I used 4 Serrano chili peppers with seeds in. Followed the recipes steps exactly resulting in a wonderful spicy new dimension to liver. Served over Cous-Cous with sliced banana on the side. When I make this again I hope to have galangal but I doubt it can be much better than this Thanks Pets'R'us for a recipe that will be a regular treat when I want spicy
