I used lambs fry (liver) and the family asked me to keep recipe as they loved it. The tomatoes gave it the best flavour

Can't believe that you would cook liver for 10mins! Then another simmering for 3-4mins????

It must have been awfully chuff as we say in Scotland. Liver is best treated with a delicate hand, even large slices should only be cooked for 2-or-3min per side(Max). It should be slightly pink inside, not brown. Further more, if you think liver is too strong tasting? Soak in milk for an hour before frying, it helps clean out the blood; etc. Pls try it next time you cook liver.
Excellent grub
