Liver & Pineapple

  • I saw a recipe for liver with pineapples and thought that it should be good.
  • It is a variation on my simple recipe in lovely liver.
  • Use lamb, ox or pig’s liver – whichever you like best.


  • Around 100g of liver per person.
  • 1 or 2 onions (I like lots of onions with the liver).
  • Tinned pineapples – 1 or 2 rings per person – and the juice.
  • Italian herbs
  • 1 -2 tablespoons of plain flour
  • Butter & sunflower oil to fry
  • Salt & pepper


  • It is easiest to make this using 3 pans or 2 pans and a grill.
  • Fry the onions in butter & sunflower oil till golden.
  • Thinly slice the liver.
  • Coat the liver in a mixture of flour and pepper.
  • Lightly pan fry the liver slices in a mixture of butter & sunflower oil on both sides.
  • Sprinkle on some Italian herbs.
  • Add around 150 ml of  vegetable stock (can be from a cube, concentrate or powder) … depends on the size of your pan & the juice.
  • Put the lid on the pan (a glass lid is good for this) and simmer gently for 2 -3  minutes.  (The time will depend on the thickness of the slices)
  • Heat the pineapple rings on both sides on a grill or in a frying pan.
  • Add the onions to the fried liver and mix together.
  • Season to taste.
  • Put the onions and liver into a warm shallow serving dish.
  • Place the pineapple rings on top and serve.


Serve with boiled potatoes, rice or noodles.
