Sounds delish :) Soaking liver in milk is a common technique, it is said to remove impurities, soften flavor and tenderize liver.

can we adapt this ?

Guest February 7, 2018 2:51 PM
Can you do this without the milk, or does this help soften and help break the liver down, problem is I am allergic to milk

I think omitting the milk will still lead to a great tasting liver! I often do this when I'm short of time ;)

Not a Big Fan

Im typically not a fan of liver, but I live on a farm and the bacon stash is low so I cooked the pork liver according to this recipe. It was bomb. Ill probably cook it again, which is not something I've ever desired of liver.

I have cooked liver many

I have cooked liver many times this way, as I grew up loving liver and onions. Sometimes I soak liver in milk overnight and get best liver ever. It's always a big hit and no leftovers!

This was a fantastic dinner idea!! The liver was very tender and mild flavored. I did soak the liver in milk for about 3 hours. This is by far one of my favorite liver recipes.

Thank you for this recipe it worked great. I made a few changes by adding bacon and more onions to it, and some sugar to caramelize the onions. Came out pretty good and yummy.
