1. Roast Veal Liver

What should I bear in mind when frying veal liver?

Firstly, the liver should be bought fresh and already cleaned, cut into slices.

Secondly, the liver must not be seasoned before roasting, salting before roasting can make the liver hard and inedible.

Third, you should either have a good veal stock or veal jus at home, or at least a mature balsamic vinegar.

There is a second article on roasted liver, there I show a variant recipe roasted chicken liver.

2. Veal Liver Berlin Style

With the veal liver Berliner Art or Berliner Leber, the veal liver slice is fried, glazed with butter, infused with veal jus and later served garnished with fried apple slices and roasted onion slices.
