Liver with Onions, Higado Encebollado

Today's dish is,.... Liver with Onions. On the contrary to what one might think, it is great tasting and very simple to prepare. I advice you to ask the butcher to remove the outer skin of the liver and to cut it into very thin slices. This will make it easier to cook. You can serve it with white rice, tostones or yuca.

Liver with Onions 
Delicious and healthy option for a quick dinner with a creole taste.
2 lbs beef liver
1 cup milk
3 teaspoons crushed garlic
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1½ teaspoon ground oregano
2 large onions, cut into rings or halved
½ cup vinager or sour orange juice salt and pepper
¼ cup soybean or corn oil

1. Leave the liver in milk for at least 30 minutes or overnight. The milk helps to tenderize meat.
2. Drain and season with crushed garlic, soy sauce and ground oregano. Let stand 30 minutes or more.
3. Meanwhile cut onions, season with some salt and vinegar or sour orange juice is better. Set aside.
4. In a hot skillet, sauté liver for about 2 minutes per side or until it's no longer pink, add the onions with vinegar or any orange juice, cover, and cook until onions soften a bit (2 mins.) or to taste. Total time: depends on the amount of time you let the liver macerate and with seasoning. Cooking time is only 5 minutes.

Yield: Serves 6.

  8. Although, not a real fan of liver, except in exquisitely made paté...the only other way I can appreciate it is with a bit of butter, lots of caramelized onions and a splash of Port wine.

    What I'm certainly going to take away from your post is the tip to use milk to tenderize the liver...had not thought of that ;o)

    Thanks Mari.
    Have a great week.

  9. I love love love liver and onions!!! i grew up on it!

  10. While I never have been a fan of liver, I remember a cook making a delicious liver and onion dish at a restaurant where I worked. I lapped it up! It had many enticing flavors as this does! The plantains are an added bonus!

  11. Most people may not like liver, but I love it...especially with onions.
    I use the same method as you do, by soaking them in milk. Now, I am so wanting to make this for the weekend!
    Thanks for sharing, Mari!

  12. Elisabeth- great! I am glad we prepare it the same way. I love the liver prepared with onions, it is so tasty.

  13. The addition of vinegar cuts the strong smell/taste of liver that some people do not like. I suggest it be red wine vinegar. Add some dried dill weed and plain yogurt or sour cream to the onions and the pan juices. Yum!
