Directions

  1. In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and saute until translucent. Add thyme, basil, parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add sherry, reduce heat to medium low and let all simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, cut liver into small pieces, about the size of large sugar lumps, and add liver pieces to skillet mixture. Cook all together, shaking skillet well, for 6 to 7 minutes. Add more sherry if mixture gets dry. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and fried croutons and serve.
  3. To make croutons, drizzle olive oil over cubes of bread, toss to coat all sides. Cook croutons in a heavy skillet over medium heat until golden brown.

Thank you, Pippy for this great recipe. I admit, I didn't have fresh parsley,and I added green pepper, but it was fabulous. I made it in honor of a guest's request, not because I'm a fan, but that has changed. Maybe it was the fact that I used excellent sherry? Anyway, it was delicious. And after dinner, it looked less appetizing as a leftover, so I whirled it up and now I enjoy a wonderful pate. Thanks again!

Tyhis is fabulous!!! Doesn't even taste like liver. Thyme seems to be the key flavor to make this out standing!

I am not a great fan of liver, but my wife loves it, so for her I decided to give it a try. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I did not have French bread so used some Sour Dough that I had on hand, and it worked just fine. I also did as Dr. Shaw , and turned the left-overs into a Pate for the wife, as she loves that also. This is definately a keeper and will probably make it for the next family gathering just to turn it into the Pate just for the pre dinner appitizers.

Loved it! I have made this 3 times so far. I once substituted chicken broth for the sherry and wasn't nearly as good.

I thought I would try something new on my family. Needless to say that all 5 of us do not like liver. We ended up getting pizza instead.
