- Prepare the liver as you like. I take out the tough parts and cut the liver into bite sized pieces.
- Add the salt, pepper and other seasonings at this time—directly to the liver.
- Cut the onions and partially fry them first, at about 3000. Remove and set aside.
- Reheat the skillet to 400 degrees. Put in the liver and carefully fry about 3 to 5 minutes one side. Turn it over and do the same on that side.
- Now add the onions back in and cook 3 to 5 minutes.

- Now comes the liver. I push the onions to one side and get the liver started. Didn’t take long. Then I mixed the two together and carefully fried the liver. Didn’t take long.
