Ingredients

  • 1 pound liver (lamb is tender, but beef or pig's liver have more flavor)
  • 4 ounces bacon, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (14-ounce) tin chopped tomatoes
  • Oil, for frying
  • Small amount seasoned flour
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ pint stock (ham stock is best)

Instructions

  1. Fry the onion and bacon together in the oil for a few minutes to soften, and then put the mixture in a casserole dish. Set aside.
  2. Chop the liver into bite-sized pieces, and lightly coat in the seasoned flour.
  3. Fry the liver for a few minutes until it has changed color; then transfer to the casserole dish to join the onions and bacon.
  4. You can add a little more flour at this stage if you like, but it's not strictly necessary. Gently cook the flour in the oil.
  5. Mix your stock with the remaining oil in the saucepan. This will have thickened a little.
  6. Bring up to boil, and then add the tin of chopped tomatoes.
  7. Add the Worcestershire sauce. Mix well, then pour the mixture over the liver, onion, and bacon in the casserole dish. Cover with a lid.
  8. Place in a hot oven at 180°C for 45 minutes.
  9. Serve.

This casserole is delicious served with boiled potatoes and a green vegetable.
