Sliced calves' liver sauteed in olive oil with fresh lemon thyme The lemon thyme sweetens the liver, while the slight bitterness of the liver contrasts wonderfully with the lemon thyme.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 8 ounces calves liver, sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 6 sprigs fresh lemon thyme, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
Rinse liver and pat dry. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place the fresh thyme in a layer on the bottom of the pan, then lay the liver on top. Cook on medium heat for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Calves' liver may be eaten slightly pink, but be careful not to overcook it. Season with salt and pepper after cooking.
