    I love liver and I love this recipe - look at the calories and fat all low and very tasty. I cut the recipe in half with no problem. I sliced the liver while still frozen to almost stir fry size. It cooked in about 5 minutes poured on the great sauce and cooked another 4 minutes I would love this in a pita bread but but had none so I served it as the main meat dish with roasted sweet potatoes, steamed green beans & spaetzel . It was wonderful Thanks Egyptian John for intoducing me to this excellent sauce & recipe — posted Jan 12, 2005

    This is my new favorite way to eat liver! I modified it a little because I don't have a blender and just used minced garlic, diced chilis and the liquids as I was cooking. Works pretty well. I also threw in some seared onions. I like it over brown rice. :-)

    While I've never had any liver here that tastes quite like this (I live in Egypt), it is GOOD!<br/><br/>I'll definitely be cooking this again.<br/><br/>Thanks for the recipe Egy John.

    I never liked liver, but my Egyptian husband made it once for me and I was amazed how delicious it was compared to the standard liver and onions. This recipe is just like the one my husband made for me. We cut the liver into small morsels rather than slices, and we serve it in a bun with fries. Makes a great sandwich!
