How to Cook Beef Liver?


  • 1 lb of beef liver
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • water 
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • milk 


  • To prevent the bitterness of the liver, wash the beef liver with water and soak it for 1-2 hours in a bowl of milk before you start cooking.
  • Take the liver pieces in a bowl and pour milk until it covers the liver.
  • After 2 hours, remove the milk from the bowl and cut the liver into horizontal slices of 3/4 inches thickness.
  • Take a skillet, add some butter, and heat it on medium flame. When the butter melts, add onions which are cut as rings, into the butter. 
  • When the onions are soft, shift them into a bowl and leave the remaining butter on the skillet.
  • Now add liver slices into the skillet and put salt and pepper on them. Now, cook the liver pieces for 3-4 minutes on both sides.
  • After 4 minutes, add the softened onions into the skillet, and fry them along with the liver until the liver turns slightly pink. 
  • Once the liver turns pink, it is good to serve. Frying it longer will make it tough and spoil its taste.
  • So immediately shift liver pieces and the onions into a serving plate and enjoy the dish.
