Orange Liver Saute

Orange Liver Saute

If you’ve read some of my other liver recipes, then you’ll know that I’ve been trying to find a way to make liver delicious even for people (like my husband) who dislike the taste of liver.

So, here’s another one – this time with oranges. The orange flavor, along with the cinnamon, really helps to cover the taste of liver!

Jeremy’s response to the dish: “This may be your best one yet!”

I’ll definitely be trying this. I have yet to find a liver dish that ALL my kids will eat.

Could you use pastured organic chicken livers? I have a good source for those from a local farm but not so much calf liver.

    Yep -totally! Any liver would work for this recipe.
