I don't care if it is deer, elk or beef liver . . . everyone that hates liver, likes this recipe my ma came up with.
First of all you put the cleaned/sliced liver in a pan of cold water and just bring to a boil. Shut off the fire. NOW LOOK AT THE WATER! Wouldn't you call that gross?
Eeeewwww! Remove the liver by lifting it out of the yucky water with a fork or tongs . Do NOT pour the water off. Looking at the water, if you hadn't done this first step, you would have been eating all this crap you see in the water. You can go throw the water in the garden or let the dog drink it.
OK! Now roll your liver in flour, salt and pepper and place in large cast iron skillet preheated with small amount of oil. Add peeled cut into wedges potatoes, large sliced onion or two, add a cup or two of catsup and enough water to cover. Place lid on skillet and simmer for 2 to 2 1/2 hrs or so. Just keep checking to make sure you don't run out of liquid. This is a very good nutricious meal served with your favorite veggie and dinner roll.
