  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 30g butter
  • 500g white onions, thinly sliced
  • 500g good calves’ liver, deveined and cut into strips
  • 50g plain flour, seasoned
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • Polenta, to serve


  1. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large, heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 minutes, until soft but not coloured. Remove with a slotted spoon.
  2. Dust the liver in the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess. Add to the hot pan and sauté quickly, about 2-3 minutes, until browned but still tender. Stir in the white wine vinegar, then add the softened onions and some seasoning and toss everything together. Serve immediately, with some creamy polenta.
