Baked Beef Liver and Onions

Most folks cringe when they hear the word "liver"

I ran across this recipe on one of the cooking forums for a different way to make liver! YAY!
Ok so Im gonna take you thro the recipe with pictures. If you wanna skip thro the pictures, the written out recipe is at the end.

First you get you a bowl and put your italian dressing in it and your liver, cover it up and put it in the fridge and forget it for a couple hours.

Then about an hour before you wanna eat supper, you gather all of this stuff plus flour for dredging:

6 bacon slices(crumbled) (better make you an extra for eating while cooking)

2 cups sliced onion

2 cans mushrooms drained and keep the juice.

dry white wine

Using the same pan you used to cook the bacon, saute your onions, put them aside.

Using the same pan, dredge your liver pieces, and brown them. This is kinda important that you dont cook them too much, just brown them.

When you get them browned, put them in a 8x8 baking dish.

See all those yummy crumbs and stuff in the pan there? You want them.

Put your mushroom juice in a measuring cup and put the wine in till you have one cup. Put that in your pan with all the yummy drippings, some salt and pepper to taste, and stir it up mixing all the drippings and the wine and mushroom juice up till its boiling and then turn off your heat and take the pan off the burner.

Now you put your mushrooms, and onions on top of the liver, then pour the liquid mixture you just made in your pan on top of that, then finish it off with the bacon pieces.

Then you put this in your oven uncovered for 30ish mins and serve. Im putting mashed potatoes, and green beans with mine. A salad would be nice too!

Here is the recipe without the pictures:

Baked Beef Liver

2 lbs beef liver (could use other types of liver, I just havent tried any, let me know how that works for ya!)

1/2 cup Italian salad dressing


6 bacon slices

2 cups sliced onion

1 can mushrooms

dry white wine


Marinate liver in dressing several hours in refrigerator. Drain, coat with flour. In large skillet, saute bacon until crisp. Drain, crumble, set aside. Add onion to skillet, saute for 5 minutes. Remove and set aside. In same skillet, saute liver 3 minutes on each side and remove to 8" x 8" baking dish. Reserve drippings.

Drain mushrooms, reserving liquid. In 1-cup measure combine mushroom liquid with wine to meausre 1 cup. Add to drippings in skillet with salt and pepper. Bring to boil and remove from heat. Pour onions and mushrooms over liver, then pour wine sauce over the liver and top with crumbled bacon. Bake 45 minutes at 325F.
