Recipe Ingredients for Liver and onions

600 grams Beef Liver
1/4 cup Gold Medal All Purpose Flour
50 grams Butter
1 tbsp Olive Oil
15 small Onions
1 full glass (6.0 fl oz) Wine, Table, Red
18 oz Beef Stock
350 grams Carrots

Recipe Directions for Liver and onions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. For the braised liver and onions, place the liver slices onto a plate. Dredge with the flour and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  3. Heat a casserole dish until hot, then add half of the butter. Add the liver to the pan in batches and fry until golden-brown and slightly crusted. Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining liver. When all the liver is browned, set it aside on a plate.

  4. Meanwhile, heat a separate frying pan until hot and add the olive oil and onions. Fry for 2-3 minutes, or until golden-brown and tender. Set aside and keep warm.

  5. Pour the red wine into the casserole used to cook the liver. Bring to a simmer and stir with a wooden spoon, scraping up the bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer until the wine is reduced by a third.

  6. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Add the thyme, bay leaf and carrots and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  7. Return the liver to the pan and stir gently, making sure the liver is below the surface of the liquid. Bring back to a simmer, then place in the oven and cook for 30-45 minutes, or until the liver is tender. Remove from the oven, remove the liver to a plate and keep warm.

  8. Return the casserole dish to the heat and bring the sauce to the boil. Boil for 2-3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Whisk in the remaining butter. Return the liver to the pan and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
