  • 175g lamb's liver, sliced into thin strips
  • 20g pack flatleaf parsley, chopped
  • 150ml hot vegetable stock (made with bouillon powder)
  • 4 tbsp soured cream


  1. Halve the potatoes. Simmer in salted water for 12-15 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a wok. Add the potatoes and fry them for 4-5 minutes over a high heat until browned and crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  3. Tip the spring onions and bacon into the pan and stir and sizzle for 3-4 minutes or until the bacon gets crispy. Meanwhile, season the flour with paprika, a little salt and plenty of black pepper, then use to coat the liver.

  4. Stir the liver into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes. Toss in the potatoes and quickly reheat. Stir in the chopped parsley, remove everything from the pan and divide between 2 plates. Keep warm.

  5. Quickly pour the hot stock into the pan and scrape all the crispy bits up from the bottom. Bubble for 1-2 minutes, then pour around the liver and potatoes. Serve each portion topped with soured cream and a sprinkling of paprika.

Delicious. Now one of our favourite meals. Only change I have made is to use hot paprika.

Great recipe for liver, really tasty. Liver is still not my favourite thing to eat but try to eat regularly for the health benefits and this recipe makes it bearable to eat! Used normal chopped onions as thought that spring onions would break down too much and also potatoes took longer than 5 mins to crisp up. Served with lots of cabbage. Be careful not to overcook the liver - easily done!

I love liver and bacon but I doubled up on the quantities and couldn't get the wok hot enough to crisp up the potatoes and liver. Everything cooked ok but was just a gloopy mess. On this attempt I'd only give a 1 star but will cook it again at some point with the above quantity and then rate

Yum! I can see this being a great store cupboard recipe to use up all sorts of different veg left over from the week.

So tasty and you can use normal tatties and we'be also used other types of liver and creme fraiche in place of sour cream on occasion - it's versatile depending on what you have at the time and is always so tasty, not to mention nutritious.

I have never really cooked before I found myself between jobs. I decided to have a go and this was one of the first recipies which I tried. I have done it 3 times now so i guess we like it! I do a bit more stock otherwise just follow the recipie. Really tasty.

Fantastic recipe, easy to cook. Added a couple of things, some halved button mushrooms and half a sliced pre fried onion. The spring onions were added half way through cooking due to previous comments. Lovely flavours!

I'm not sure why this recipe works so well but it does! It's made us want to eat liver more often, thanks GF.
