Seven 1970’s Recipes, Recipe 6: Beef Liver and Onions

My mom made this dish often during the sixties and seventies, but not much later because of concerns about problems with locally raised beef livers (a long story that I think was finally answered by questions about local manufacturing involving C8) and cholesterol.

She would make it every time my older sister came home because it had been her one of her favorites as a teenager in the late 1960’s.

Why are there no pictures? Well, I am not a liver fan…
