Liver recipes anyone?

Does anyone have any recipes for liver (pigs liver specifically)

Bought some at the weekend as its way cheaper than regular cuts of meat, but i've never cooked it and havent had it since i was a kid (mum used to fry it til it was like a piece of leather - apparently it was "good for me" and if its good for you it has to taste rubbish!)

There' nothing on the SW website, there's a few on the BBC food recipes web pages, but I wondered if anyone had anything already SW friendly - even BritMum doesnt have any on her blog!

If not, I think there's one in the Extra Easy cookbook that I might give a try.

I just usually put it in a casserole with onions, mushrooms & bacon with aprox 300ml of water mixed with beef bovril or oxo cube and cook slowly in oven for approx 45mins

Hope this has been helpful
liver& onions

When i do liver,I fry in frylightn in large frying pan, fry onions in seperate pan and then add to the liver,add water and stir in oxo let it simmer slowly while slimming world chips are in the oven and then thicken the gravy just before serving,with gravy granules, nothing nicer than liver and chips and peas with the onion gravy poured over the chips, hope you like it as much as my family do....

Excellent suggestions, thanks everyone.

I took some bacon out of the freezer too, so I think I might try the stoganoff recipe tonight but they all look good.

I'm not convinced OH is gonna like it, so have take some sausages out the freezer too just in case (non SW friendly ones left over from a barbecue, so they need getting rid of)
Well, I made the Strogonaff - the stock was nice but I think I have to admit that maybe liver is never really going to be my favourite meat :(

Still, for a cheap meal if i'm totally skint its worth bearing in mind -and i might use the same receipe for casserole beef or something like that


I still can't get around the liver I used to eat being tough. I say "eat" more like in my mums house we'd get force fed it during *week "FOR THE IRON! EAT IT"

I had a beautiful piece once but never been able to recreate it.
