  • 1 lb Beef Liver sliced
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 4 tbsp butter divided
  • 1 Vidalia Onion thinly sliced into rings


  • Pour milk in shallow bowl.
  • Gently rinse liver slices and place in a milk bowl.
  • Soak for 30 minutes.
  • Combine the flour, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Melt 1 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a large skillet.
  • Add onion to skillet and saute them in butter until soft
  • Remove onions to a separate dish and set aside.
  • Add remaining butter to skillet and increase temperature to medium high.
  • Drain liver and dredge both sides of each slice in the prepared flour mixture.
  • Place dredged liver in the skillet.
  • Cook until brown on the bottom. Turn and cook on the other side until browned.
  • Reduce temperature to medium and place sauteed onions on each slice.
  • Cook a little longer as desired. Be careful to not overcook. I like my liver just so all the pink inside is gone.
