Preparing the Ingredients

In our family is often cooked liver, whether it is pork or beef liver, or it is chicken liver. Chicken liver is very popular and is especially a favourite of our children. Apart from the goose liver ( also called foie gras ) that is much more expensive, chicken liver is found at all butchers and hypermarkets and is very cheap. 

Sauteed Chicken Livers With Onion - Chicken Liver

I bought 1 kg of the livers that I first washed thoroughly, squeezed it well and I cut it into smaller pieces (bigger livers cut into 2-3 pieces). Do not cut them very small because they will shrink at frying. 

 I also need 2-3 medium-sized onions, which I peeled and sliced julienne, not very thin.

Let’s Get Cooking the Sauteed Chicken Livers With Onion!

In a deep frying pan, melt two tablespoons butter with a drop of sunflower oil ( my grandmother poured pork lard instead of butter and tasted great ). 

When the butter melts, put the livers to fry, at first over medium heat, then over low heat. We can put the lid over the pot and the livers will be steamed.

Simmer over low heat until the liver turns whitish, about 20 minutes, stirring and taking care that the liver does not fry, just simmer. Towards the end, the color of the liver will darken, it will turn brown.

Usually, when I cook or fry liver of any kind, I do not salt before or during the roasting because, in my opinion, the liver will become stronger. So I put the salt at the end. 

Now add the sliced onion over the liver, along with a teaspoon of freshly ground pepper and a teaspoon of marjoram.
