BEEF LIVER SMOTHERED WITH ONIONS

beef liver with onions - CopyI love liver and onions! I like just about any kind of liver, too. When I was a child I would not eat it at all but now I like it. Beef liver smothered in onions is a favorite at my house.

1 pound beef liver
3 – 4 tablespoons bacon grease (can use butter or margarine if you don’t have the grease)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 – 2 large onions, peeled and cut into rings
1/2 cup flour
1 cup water
 
Put the flour into a shallow dish and add salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Mix well.  Add grease to skillet and have hot.  Dredge liver in flour and fry on both sides until brown. Sprinkle onion rings on top of the liver in the pan and add about a cup of water.  Cover and simmer until beef it tender about 7 or 8 minutes.  Makes about six servings.  Enjoy!

  1. TRY LIVER, ONIONS,AND GRAVY OVER GRITS…. THE BEST EVER!

  2. I love, love, love liver and onions!! But, organ meat is so fattening! I don’t eat it to much!

  3. Could I make this recipe with corn meal instead of flour ? When cook Liver (which isn’t very often because I am the only one that likes it in my home ) I fry it with corn meal .

  4. which is better.beef or calf”s liver I think one is stronger than the other?

  5. Going to make this for my husband and sister in law they are the only ones who eat it. I love all the receipes. Made the old fashion carrot cake tonight with the cream cheese frosting

  6. I make liver and onions for my daughter she loves it and is the only one in the house that eats it. I make mine with cream of mushroom soup. I cook the liver and sautee the onions and then mix the cream of mushroom soup with a little bit of water and whisk it until smooth and pour in the skillet with the liver and onions and heat until bubbles.

  7. all you need is a hot greased cast iron skillet with mashed potatoes and slice of fresh tomato.

  8. I love liver and onions but rarely make it at home because I don’t like the way it makes my house smell afterwards. I might break down and make some because this really really really looks good. I love my liver and onions with fried taters as a side (also fried with onions). I know mega ‘grease’ overload but hey, you only live once… LOL.

  9. I have always loved liver and onions, even as a child!! I think it was because my Mom was such a good cook and it was so tender!! This sounds like the way she fixed it. :)

  10. I could go for a plate of this right now. I love liver too. Almost better than steak. No one in my family likes it (Joe will eat it)…just me. When I go out to eat and order it…people look at me like I’m crazy.There are just a couple of restaurants where I will order it. I have bacon with mine. Thanks for making me hungry again!

  11. You can count me in as one of the people who love liver and onions but didn’t like it when younger. I think the reason is that most people cook it until it is like shoe leather.

  12. I love this very much
