First of all we would like to tell some words about how to cook the liver properly. If you have bought a beef unprocessed liver with a gall bladder inside, you will need to get rid of it as soon as possible. Otherwise, it can be broken and spoil the whole product. Cut it, taking the flesh 5-6 mm around, not to touch it.

The next step is to cut out the large ducts, to clean the entire film as much as possible, for which to cut it with a knife and pull it. You can also soak the liver for a while in water or milk, so that the consistency becomes even much softer.

Chicken liver can be used immediately without special preparation.
