Since I moved to England I haven’t eaten a great deal of liver.
At the moment I can’t really eat because I am pregnant. Even though in Romania women eat liver and pâté during pregnancy. I am craving some at the moment only….until now only the thought of it use to make me cringe, I guess it has to do more with my sense of smell and so on.
But before I was pregnant I only bought liver occasionally as hubby doesn’t like.
Today looking through the pictures I took with food over the time I discovered the ones below and I remembered that I never actually posted the recipe.
To cook them you will need:
– liver of course – I think I used pork one this time;in Romania though we usually cook chicken liver as it doesn’t have a very strong taste;
– sunflower or vegetable oil for frying;
– a bulb of garlic if you cook like 500g of liver – for the English taste this might be a bit too much so you can just use a couple cloves;
– salt and pepper;
Wash the liver very well and then dry them with a bit kitchen paper.
Put the liver in a frying pan or pan that has a lid and pour over oil so that it get up to the half of the liver.
Add some garlic cloves between the liver. Cover with a lid and put on a medium heat to fry for 5-7 minutes.
Cover and put them back on the hob for another 7-10 min. Make sure they are all cooked before taking them off the hob. When done take them and put in a plate and add some salt and pepper as per your taste,
In Romania they are usually served with mash potatoes and pickled peppers or cucumbers. Believe me they are yummy.
I ate with cherry tomatoes though and they were nice too.
