Whenever I serve this to people for the first time, someone exclaims, "I can't believe it's liver!" Around here, that's what we call this recipe, which I devised 12 years ago. Ever since, my family has loved liver. As veteran custom harvesters over the past 25 years ago, we've provided meals for many hungry "hands". This enabled me to develop my dual passions for creating new recipes and quantity cooking.

"I tried this with some liver I had in the freezer from a half beef I had. Not our type of meal I guess. We didn't like it."

"II bought Beef liver at the store when I meant to buy chicken liver. Well, I looked up this recipe and made it right away, it is delicious!! I cooked it in coconut oil instead of bacon. The meat is so tender!!! Even people who thought they did not like Beef Liver have liked this, me included!!

Thank you!!"

"I myself have NEVER liked liver but my husband is just the opposite. This recipe has changed my mind. I even went back for a second helping! It is really good! I think that the bacon and potatoes make it so good. You really have to try it!! I have found out from others that soaking the liver strips in milk for a couple of hours takes that bitter taste away. Believe me, it is even good cold!!!"

"I like liver, my husband does not. I'd like to think the liver does not *stand out* in this dish before making it. Has anyone tried it with satisfying results?"
