A traditional Russian dish that even liver haters enjoy


For the liver pancakes:

  • 500 gr liver (pork, beef, chicken)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 70ml of milk
  • pinch of salt, pepper to taste

For the filling:

  • Mayonaise
  • 3-4 large carrots largely grated
  • 1 onion diced


  • STEP 1
    Wash your liver and put it into a food processor
  • STEP 2
    Add 3 eggs, 3 table spoons of flour, 70ml of milk to the liver and turn the processor on, leave it until the mixture forms into a smooth quite liquidy paste.
  • STEP 3
    Heat your non stick pan. Add a little bit of oil and pour some of the liver mixture onto the pan so it forms a pancake. When the pancake starts changing colour flip it. (if it brakes add a bit more flour to the mixture). It should be enough dor about 7 pancakes, although it does depend on the size of the pan.
  • STEP 4
    When the pancakes are ready set them aside. Fry the onions till golden and add the carrots for 1 minute so they still stay crunchy. This is your filling.
  • STEP 5
    Now put mayonaise onto each liver pancake and some of your filling. Arrange it into a cake.
  • STEP 6
    The filling can be anything! Some people prefer mayonaise and cheese as filling. Or tomatoes, olives, even potatoes or pasta. You will have to find your family favourite. Enjoy :)
