All you need is :
- 400g of liver
- 200g white onions
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and Pepper
Peel the onions and slice very thin. Rinse and mince the parsley. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onions and sauté for about 20 minutes, stirring constantly and making sure they don’t brown.
After the first few minutes lower the heat, salt to taste and bathe with the wine bit by bit. Slice the liver thin and sauté in the pan with the onions, raising the heat.
Continue cooking for another four or five minutes, turning the liver slices continually and seasoning with salt and pepper at the last minute.
Be sure the liver is cooked to a turn: if overcooked it gets hard and dry, if undercooked it is bloody and sweetish. Serve piping hot, sprinkled with minced parsley, accompanied with slices of grilled polenta.
As if you need convincing to get Donnafugata’s Sedara.
“A ripe and juicy wine with sour-cherry and berry character. Hints of almonds. Medium body. Flavorful finish” – JS
“Deep red. Ripe aromas of red cherry and Oriental spices. Fresh and juicy, with a luscious quality to the super-ripe red and black cherry flavors that turn more austere in the middle. Finishes long and suave. This smells and tastes a lot like the 2018 Sherazade, only made from riper grapes. A blend of Nero d’Avola mostly, plus Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.” – Vinous
