The Absolute Best Liver Recipe in the World

Ya'll - only two girls were home for dinner and they both declared this "yummy," with lots of onions. That's a win over here!

I've discovered the SECRET!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes



  1. If using beef liver, slice into smaller slices. Chicken or turkey livers can stay as-is. Lamb might need to be sliced in half.
  2. Place liver in shallow container and cover with water.
  3. Add a tablespoon of lemon juice.
  4. Cover and let sit in refrigerator all day.
  5. In cast iron skillet, heat bacon grease on low (or cook some bacon) while slicing onions.
  6. Let onions and whole garlic cloves cook slowly over low heat until soft and translucent.
  7. Remove livers from lemon water and dry off.
  8. Slice into thinner pieces.
  9. Move onion slices to a holding plate.
  10. Add more bacon grease and turn range to medium.
  11. Open Southern Baked Mix and pour into gallon plastic bag.
  12. Toss about half of the liver slices into bag and shake until each pieces is nicely coated.
  13. Take each piece of coated liver and shake off excess coating.
  14. Place each piece into bacon grease. Use a pattern so you can remove them in order.
  15. Fry for maybe a minute. You want the liver a teensy bit pink inside.
  16. Turn over each piece in order. Fry for about another minute.
  17. Remove each piece, turn range down to low and do a second batch.
  18. Serve with plenty of onions!


Use the Grip & Grab. It's really superior. Metal tongs always seem to scrape off the coating. Or cut through the meat. The Grip & Grab is perfect for frying liver!

Ideally, I serve this with white rice because I luuurv the combo. Potatoes are great and grits are also pretty yummy.

Do you HAVE to use the Epicure Southern Baked mix?
No? You can also use the Epicure Crispy & Crunchy Coating, cornmeal, or your own flour mix.
