Sweet & Sour Chicken Liver
Instructions
  1. First, melt the coconut oil in a pan on medium heat
  2. Then, add chicken livers and evenly sear them for about 7 minutes until they get some dark brown colour
  3. Next, turn the heat down to low-medium, add the onions and fry for 2-3 minutes until they become golden brown
  4. Now, add lemon juice, soy sauce, ketchup & the seasonings. Stir everything and let it heat up for a minute, until the liquid starts to boil. Afterwards, add the water and stir again
  5. Finally, let everything cook for 8-10 minutes while stirring occasionally, until most of the water is evaporated and reduced to a sauce of your desired thickness
Recipe Notes

Take care not to add too much salt, because the soy sauce is pretty salty already.

As a side dish, I like to simply cook some eggs or vegetables.

  4. When this waiting period is over, preheat your pan with some lard or coconut oil in it to medium heat
  5. Finally, fry the chicken liver for 10-15 minutes. It is no problem if some of the marinade goes into the pan and you can even use it to cook the liver in it or make a sauce out of it
  6. While the liver is cooking, you may prepare some side dishes, like boiled eggs, vegetables or mushrooms
Recipe Notes

Never pour raw, leftover marinade over the cooked liver.

If you want to use the leftover marinade, make sure to boil it up to kill all harmful bacteria.

Don't marinate in aluminum containers or foil, because a chemical reaction could spoil the food.

The best way to marinate liver is using the zip lock bag in order for it to be evenly surrounded by the marinade.
